My friend—and iQmetrix Wireless Marketing Manager—Megan Howse has already given you 5 reasons you should attend this year’s Mobile World Congress Americas. In case that wasn’t enough, I’m here to highlight some hidden gems that you need to experience when you attend this #MWCA18.

Women4Tech Program

Closing the gender gap in wireless is a movement that iQmetrix is very passionate about. That’s why we’re so excited to see that MWC Americas is hosting a summit to discuss gender diversity in the tech industry. This summit supports UN Sustainable Development Goal #5: “to achieve gender equality and empower all women in girls.” I am anxiously awaiting this summit where we’ll hear some of the best and brightest minds in the industry brainstorm to end gender inequality in tech. Is this a topic that interests you? If MWCA was enough equality talk for your liking, you can keep the conversation going at the iQmetrix Meetup with keynote speaker, and Women in Tech activist, Reshma Saujani (founder of Girls Who Code).

MWC Americas Sunrise 5K Run

While in sunny Los Angeles, you must make sure to take advantage of the balmy temperature and incredible views of the vibrant city. What better way to do so than alongside other attendees while doing a healthy activity? Start the morning off with a free networking event followed by a 5KM run through the entertainment district in L.A.! It’s the perfect chance to get your blood pumping and the ideas flowing with some of the industries top thought leaders.

After Party on Top of the World

One social event you won’t want to miss is a party on the highest open bar in the Western Hemisphere. Yes, you heard that right. iQmetrix is hosting an after party on The Sky Deck perched on the 73rd floor of the Intercontinental Los Angeles Downtown. This “California experience” themed event takes place on the first night of MWC Americas, and is sure to kickstart this great week. Don’t miss out on the California drink specials, California-native food options, and can’t miss networking that will take place! Plus, it’s got the views that will make all your co-workers stuck in the office even more envious of your time at this year’s wireless event. I mean, just look at that skyline!

Innovation City

Staying true to the MWC Americas theme of “bringing together the brightest minds in the industry today, to imagine what tomorrow could bring,” innovation will be taking center stage during the L.A. conference. Here, you’ll see a showcase of the latest products and services in mobile technologies. Be sure to check out this exhibition to learn how the mobile world is advancing, better, and wowing the world at large—you have a front row seat to the future of tech!

 

It was so hard to choose between all of the incredible opportunities at MWCA. With their action-packed agenda full of must-see topics, exhibitors, discussions, and showcases, be sure to make the most of your time. We know you’ll be wowed by all the innovation and inspired by your fellow peers and leaders in the industry and we’d love to talk shop about the future of tech!
