Mobile World Congress Competition

Do you have a creative development in mobile that could be the talk of next year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona? Then this is your chance to win a free place at this must attend event.

The Creative Industries KTN and UKTI have joined forces to offer one place on the UKTI booth for a company to showcase their exciting technology to the leaders of the world mobile industry.

This is a fabulous opportunity to showcase your company at MWC Europe’s most prestigious event for the mobile sector and meet potential business partners.

All you have to do is tell us, in 250 words or less: “Why would you be the talk of MWC and how will your offering act as a draw and be demonstrated on and around the UKTI booth?”

The winner will receive a place on the UKTI booth which is located at one of the most prominent places in the congress, plus full integration with UKTI’s presence at the event.

Steve Williams of UKTI said: “Our stand is always very busy and we are looking for a company whose product or service has that wow factor that will get everyone at the show talking and bring the key international decision makers flocking to the UKTI stand. This is a great chance to put your business in front of the top people from the world’s mobile sector. We will also promote the winner to relevant companies within our network to increase their exposure even more.”

There are also two runner up prizes of guaranteed place at Mobile World Congress pre show press networking event on 17th January at 1 Victoria Street London, with a chance to meet and present your company to more than 20 UK media interested in mobile and technology.
