This legendary event on the first night of Mobile World Congress returns to the exclusive setting of the emblematic Universitat de Barcelona for the second year and brings together over 600 international members and invited VIP guests from across the global mobile value chain in association of American Express, and it will be an exciting night of drinks, art and entertainment and the most effective and popular networking event of the Congress.

Africa is at the core of driving disruptive business models in digital entertainment. With the ascent of live video streaming, social media and the rise of hybrid & pay TV models, the African entertainment ecosystem is driving exciting new business models, outstripping so called developed markets in terms of sophistication.

This is a legendary international networking event for executives from the global mobile ecosystem. It is an INVITE-ONLY event. MWC’s premier international mobile content and commerce networking event is also supported by Gold Sponsors TIMWE and new MEF members, Silver Sponsors Mobitrans.

The world’s second screen will be Africa’s first, and those at the forefront of innovation in the digital entertainment world understand that they must adapt to survive and thrive. Africa consists of 54 distinct markets in which local content is king - unlocking the opportunities available will require investment, education and cross-ecosystem collaboration. Building new revenue streams across the mobile ecosystem requires affordable content, seamless purchases, reliable connections and an understanding of how content is consumed and importantly, who by.
