MWC 2023 in numbers

MWC is fast approaching, with 1,600+ companies registered to attend this year. Check out this infographic from Babel’s dedicated telecoms PR team, that illustrates some key exhibitor stats.

  • What exhibitors say their interests are – ‘5G’ and ‘IoT’ lead the way but every sub-sector of mobile is represented.
  • The number of exhibitors per Fira hall – good luck navigating through the 500+ exhibitors in 8.1!
  • Exhibitors per country – The USA is headquarters to the largest number but the interactive map shows just how geographically diversified the telecoms sector is.
  • A breakdown of exhibitor size by employee numbers – the GSMA has made sure MWC works for everyone from start-ups to unicorns.
  • Exhibitor type – from public and private companies to government agencies, non-profits and educational institutions.
