It’s that time of the year again when Barcelona hosts the great mobile exhibition that is the Barcelona Mobile World Congress.  The convention covers the dates 11-14 February.

This highly popular convention covers all aspects of the latest in mobile technologies and this year film legend Robert Redford is in attendance offering his support for the latest medium for creative film-making.  Robert will headline for on-day (13th) at the Mobile Backstage.

“We are thrilled and honoured to announce this rare keynote appearance by a screen legend,” said Bill Gajda, Chief Marketing Officer of the GSMA. “As a champion of independent artists and their work, and as an advocate of innovation and risk taking in the film world, we can expect some forthright, refreshing and somewhat unexpected insights for the mobile world, especially in terms of opportunities for cinematic quality film on the small screen.”

Robert, who will also appear on the 12th at the Mobile Awards said:

“The energy and opportunity that this event presents, not just for business but for artists and their work, makes it particularly exciting for me,” said Redford. “The GSMA continues to take seriously both the business of delivering content and the art of creating content, as they lead the exciting mobile sector into the future,” he added.

The event grows every year and Barcelona is generally fully booked at that time.  Prices are also known to more than double (or even triple) during this period, especially hotel rooms, and apartments have become a viable, an economic, alternative.
