Staged in the Spanish city of Barcelona, the 2010 Mobile World Congress provides an international forum for over 1300 companies to present the products and technology that will shape the future of mobile communications. In addition to its huge exhibition, Mobile World Congress serves as a global hub where industry experts can discuss the industry trends that are driving wireless communications forward.

Barcelona is an ideal city for such a complex and forward-looking event. It dates back 2000 years and its foundation is the subject of two different legends. The first legend attributes the founding of the city to Hercules 400 years before the building of Rome, while the second attributes it to the Carthaginian Hamilcar Barca, father of Hannibal. He supposedly named the city Barcino after his family in the third century BC.

Barcelona has always been a driving force in trade and art. Two prime figures demonstrate its combined radical and traditional approach: Gaudi, the iconoclastic architect whose designs feature strongly in the city, and the 18th century painter Goya, who is widely considered one of the last great classical painters. Now, the city is pushing the evolution of wireless technology by serving as a gathering place for some of the most innovative minds in this industry.
