RWA & WIA Networking Reception

In Barcelona, Spain during Mobile World Congress

Monday, February 25, 2019, 6:00 - 8:00 pm

Requesens Palace – Gothic District

Carrer Bisbe Cassador, 3, 08002 Barcelona, Spain

Mobile World Congress 2019 (MWC19) in Barcelona, Spain is the largest mobile event in the world, bringing together the latest innovations and leading-edge technology from more than 2,400 prominent companies. Nearly 110,000 key decision-makers are expected to attend MWC19.

MWC19 gives attendees a glimpse into the future that is invaluable for planning and will serve to position your company in the US market for 5G, AI and IoT. When we gather in Barcelona, we are able to forge relationships with global carriers as well as international product and service providers that make this industry possible.

For 2019, the Rural Wireless Association (RWA) and the Wireless Infrastructure Association (WIA) have teamed up to co-host a networking reception for US-based and global industry leaders to connect during MWC19. RWA and WIA C-level leaders, FCC Commissioners, and Congressional leaders will connect over tapas and drinks at an extraordinary venue in the heart of Barcelona, Requesens Palace. It is located in the Gothic District and is listed as a Cultural Asset of National Interest.

This event will raise awareness globally that rural US carriers are strong and open for business. This means you gain exposure to a host of 5G, AI and IoT companies that want to be in a position to work with you to serve rural geographic areas in the US and deliver traffic to your rural networks. It no longer matters how big the population is in rural America, but what can be done with connected highways, cars, machines and equipment (and yes robotics) to efficiently harvest our natural resources and agricultural products in rural America to benefit all of America.
