Partner Programmes

Partner Programmes Overview 

Partner Programmes offer MWC attendees the opportunity to amplify their knowledge about the mobile industry. The programmes are developed and presented by you and some of the top organisations in the mobile ecosystem. This is your opportunity to take the stage and provide invaluable industry learning opportunities for our attendees. Here are the types of programmes being delivered in 2020:

  • Partner Events: Full or half-day, co-located events developed and led by some of the most innovative companies in the mobile space today. Our partners determine the content and topics covered which can include new programme initiatives, emerging market trends, and, or product development. These events are usually geared to the general mobile audience or industry specific audience.
  • Power Hour 90: These ninety minute sessions were developed for the newer players in the mobile ecosystem. Each session is an hour and a half long and can cover the topic determined by the partner.
  • Power Hour 60: These sixty minute sessions were developed for the newer players in the mobile ecosystem. Each session is an hour long and can cover the topic determined by the partner.
  • Professional Training: Our Technology Training Partners offer a variety of workshops and training sessions covering specialised mobile industry topics.
