Apps, enterprise wearables, smart machines, money…everything’s coming up mobile. And the world’s biggest, annual conference on mobile trends and mobile innovation, Mobile World Congress 2016, is coming up soon, Feb. 22–25 in Barcelona, to cover it all.

Mobile World Congress is the place for industry professionals to learn what’s new and what’s next in mobile, developers to network with leaders in app development and mobile start-ups to learn how to grow their businesses. For 20 years, the event has also recognized the top mobile innovations with the prestigious Global Mobile Awards.

Last year alone, more than 94,000 people attended from 200 countries to hear more than 140 speakers and explore the halls of nearly 2,200 mobile exhibitors. Here’s a recap of the 2015 event:


This year, keynote presentations include executive speakers like Simon Segars, CEO of ARM; Ralph de la Vega, president and CEO of AT&T Mobile & Business Solutions; and Gavin Patterson, CEO of BT Group. And this year’s agenda covers topics like:
