The Mobile World Congress in Barcelona is the world's biggest mobile technology fair, featuring some 2,300 exhibitors.

Brian Simon, director of sales at NRT Technology, values the annual Mobile World Congress because it allows direct contact with his major customers in one stop.

“This show attracts more than 110,000 people, but I’m really only interested in seeing about 15,” he said in an interview this week from Barcelona, where the world’s largest gathering of mobile industry is once again being held.

Simon’s firm is a Toronto-based provider of services such as electronic ticket redemption, cash access and payment kiosks that has exhibited at Mobile World Congress (MWC) for several years. His firm, which exports services to prepaid telecom customers, has a large footprint in the Caribbean and Eastern Europe.

Discussion

1) Canadian tech companies providing tech services in the Caribbean and Eastern Europe meeting connections in Spain.  How might a company like this have gotten a footprint in Eastern Europe?

2) Do some research on what other Canadian companies are at Mobile World Congress.
