Last year I went along to the UK Trade & Investment pre-MWC press event. It was a super, super way of meeting all the UKTI supported companies heading out to Mobile World Congress. I was able to talk to each of them and decide which I really wanted to cover in more detail. If you’re part of the media heading out to MWC, I strongly recommend attending. It’s happening on this coming Monday afternoon.
Here’s the overview from the UKTI team:
On 23rd January UKTI is holding its pre-Mobile World Congress media event. Essentially, 20 UK companies will be showing off their innovation in advance of the show. The companies are diverse: from infrastructure to apps and from hardware to services. They all have two things in common: they are British and have fantastic mobile innovation.
All media, bloggers and freelance writers with an interest in mobile can attend. To do so they just need to let us know on firstname.lastname@example.org. For the media it is a chance to get a load of stories in advance of MWC and from companies that they would probably not get time to meet at the show. For the companies, they have the chance to raise their profile with the media – often the thing they need most.
The event is at 1 Victoria Street in London and media can attend from 1pm to 3pm.
