This year at CES in Las Vegas we have seen a good handful of technological products and some of them very interesting for consumption. We have focused especially on mobile devices that have been rather few presented and products related to the internet of things, that is, smart fridges, washing machines, vacuum cleaners, speakers, robots, assistants, and a good handful of home and pretty much sci-fi products which are fully connected plus some cool drones. This year the news of Xiaomi's expansion to the world was also expected since it was its first year at CES, but nothing could be further from reality and the only thing they showed as a novelty was the new Xiaomi Mi Mix in ceramic and color White.
But all the good things are over and today is the last day of this event that takes place in Las Vegas and now there is less to start the other event at the beginning of the year that many of us are waiting for since they add many more news in terms of smartphones and more "real" devices that we can see and touch during this year. The bad news is that in this MWC 2017 it seems that we will not have the presentation of two of the greats and especially Samsung, which after everything happened with their Galaxy Note 7 It will not present its new Samsung Galaxy S8 model in Barcelona.
In any case, the MWC is the most important event in the world in its field, which brings together the main companies and professionals in the mobile telecommunications sector in Barcelona. Since 2006, Barcelona has hosted the event and, for four days, once a year, it becomes the main showcase for mobile technology in the world. In its last edition in 2016, more than 100.000 professionals - including 4.500 executives from companies in the sector around the world - learned about the latest innovations in mobile solutions, presented by more than 2.200 international exhibitors, 3.800 journalists and analysts from around the world covered the event, reporting everything that happened in the 94.000 square meters of exhibition and hospitality.
This year we are expecting many important news and that is why we already want the start date of the GSMA Mobile World Congress to arrive. The MWC is celebrated from February 27 to March 2 at the Fira de Barcelona Gran Via venue.
