The GSMA Mobile World Congress is a mobile phone worldwide congress to be held in Barcelona in February. In 2011, Mobile World Congress will be held from 14 to 17 February at the Montjuic facilities of Fira de Barcelona, In Plaza España. This conference is one of the largest in the world and the organization expects that the event will be visited by about 50,000 people. In previous years, the fair has gathered more than 55,000 people. The successful event has collapsed the Catalan capital in the past and a couple of times it has had a 100% hotel occupancy. For many visitors, both individuals and businesses, the task of finding a hotel for these dates is daunting. Because of this situation many companies have chosen to book apartments in Barcelona for your stay during the Congress.

Accommodation in Barcelona during the Mobile World Congress

If you plan to come to Barcelona to the Mobile World Congress you must book your accommodation well in advance. Accommodations in the Plaza España area are the first ones to be reserved due to their proximity to the fairgrounds. A highly recommended area to stay is in near Sants Station and which is located  a couple of Metro stops from the show venue (10 minutes) and also has train station, Sants Estació, which connects Barcelona to other cities in Spain with its high speed train (AVE) and also connects downtown to the Airport.

Another area of easy access to the venue is the famous Eixample Izquierdo, extending from the Paseo de Gracia to the Plaza España. It is quite a large area, so renting an apartment in this area is highly recommended. In addition, transportation in Barcelona from this neighborhood to the Fira de Barcelona is very quick and easy. One of the advantages of booking an apartment instead of a hotel, is the possibility of using the apartment as a showroom or meeting room.
