According to Dewar, “the MWC is no longer Mobile First, or Digital First, we are Future First because the event brings together industries, technologies and communities to realize the potential of the future for the sustainability of our society and our planet. The MWC in Barcelona will be the opportunity to interact with the most prominent leaders of the moment, participate in the debates of the year and at the same time experience the technology of tomorrow.”
