mobile world congress Mobile World Congress stays in BarcelonaNot much has been hard about the MWC’s future location in the last few months – there were four cities still in the race, one of which being the ever-more deteriorating venue in Barcelona.

The GSMA has now awarded the contest to Barcelona once again:

After an 18-month search, the GSMA today announced that Barcelona has been selected as the Mobile World Capital from 2012 to 2018.

However, the existing – and annoying – Fira de Montijuc will be history come 2013:

Starting in 2013, the Mobile World Congress will be held at the new, cutting-edge venue, Fira de Barcelona Gran Via. The dates for the 2013 Mobile World Congress are 25-28 February 2013. Mobile World Congress 2012 will remain at Fira de Barcelona Montjuic and will be held 27 February – 1 March 2012.

Let’s see how it all plays out…
