Mobile World Congress 2009 Preparation Update

Time is flying and the 3GSM Mobile World Congress in Barcelona is now just a mere month away. My plane tickets and hotel room are booked but there are still a couple of things to prepare and organize to make the best out of the event.

Back in December, I've re-opened the 3GSM Mobile World Congress Events Wiki for sharing  knowledge and since then a number of new users have joined and have put in the first information about on- and off-site events and evening gathering/parties. Thanks!

Interestingly enough, the first to add themselves to the list of people/organizations reporting from the event was Nokia Siemens Networks. I know they have some great internal bloggers and I look forward to see how the congress looks like from their perspective.

The Wiki also has a page for job seekers and offers, so if you are looking for people on site to help you with the organization, it's a good opportunity to offer/find help. So far there is one job seeker looking for a job as booth hostess, event organizer, or similar. She's fluent in English, French, Italian and German and has previous experience with booth management at the MWC.

So, there we go. If you want to know what's happening alongside the congress or know of something yourself, head over, take a look or add your info. You can also use the wiki to organize your own event and invite people. Have fun and see you at the congress!
