Barcelona’s Digital Week is a celebration of online business with a dedicated week of activities, workshops, events, and after parties surrounding digital media. More than 700 people will attend the weeklong event to learn and interact with experts sharing their knowledge on the future digital technology. With more than 20 workshops, 15 speakers, and 30 global tech companies involved, the mission is to keep you up-to-speed on the latest trends and ideas for your business.
This year’s event will take place mostly at the brand new Mobile World Capital, Barcelona’s permanent installation launched during Mobile World Congress 2013. The Mobile World Capital is a multi-purpose facility in Placa Catalunya aimed on keeping Barcelona on the mobile radar beyond their flagship event held every February. The second floor houses a state of the art showroom exhibiting the history and future of mobile technology while most of the Digital Week events will take place upstairs in the newly renovated event space.
