In 2023, we saw our largest attendee audience from non-telco industries, with adjacent verticals making up 56% of the audience - MWC continues to be the place where the ecosystem's most influential organisations come to get business done.

“Advancements in mobile networking fueled by an ecosystem of innovators will accelerate transformation in both business and society. MWC is one of the most important events not only to demonstrate NTT Data’s capabilities and the momentum we’re seeing with our connective solutions, especially edge, and private 5G, but also to network with our clients, partners and some of the biggest influencers in the industry. I have no doubt we’ll see some exciting developments from the latest technologies at the edge that will be the next catalysts for innovation and growth from across the industry – all in one fantastic location.”
