The Technology Fair has an economic impact of EUR 471 million and involves 13,000 temporary jobs.

In addition to bringing technology and great conferences in Barcelona, the Mobile World Congress (MWC) is having a financial impact, which many cities have had with greedy eyes since independence started.

This year (the thirteenth in Barcelona), 108,000 participants, the same number as last year, are expected to attend. According to GSMA, an association which groups mobile industry and organizes the event, lecturers, businesspeople and media from 200 countries generate an economic impact of 471 million in the city. More than 4,400 million have been left in Ciudad Condal since 2006.

Mobile begins the most politicised

The fair, with some 2300 (197 Spanish) exhibiting firms and 170 international delegations, will feature in this edition, showing a world-class speaker, who is such an event for a city. The Mobile exhibition centre, spread over eight pavilions, has 240,000 square meters, which equates to 40 football pitches.

There have been 13,000 temporary jobs, including audiovisual technicians, architects, reporters, engineers, computer professionals, carpenters, drivers, security personnel, cooks and waiters, hostesses and cleaners. The organization has claimed.

This is an increase to 15,000 direct and indirect jobs for the human resources company Adecco, 13.6 percent higher than in 2017. Since the first issue, some 115,000 part-time jobs have been created. The event also fills the capital’s hotels and several kilometers, which this week will bring significant price increases.

The Barcelona Hotels Guild informed that during the four-day technology fair, the hotels of Barcelona are full. The Barcelona Catering Association, on the other hand, has stated that the costs of restaurants for congressmen are estimated to be around EUR 20 million, up to EUR 30 million if lunch and day to and from the MWC are added. However, all this is at stake for the fight for independence.
