MWC Top 10: The Best of Barca

You know, there's lots of stuff to enjoy about Mobile World Congress and Barcelona.

We didn't want to come off as relentless curmudgeons with our last slide show on the big mobile bash. (See MWC: 10 Things That Could Melt Your Mind .)

So here's a selection of the best stuff that happens on or around the show in Spain. Click below to see the highlights:

Sun!
With snow covering a good part of the US, and rain hammering some areas of Europe and the UK, the expected warm temperatures in Barcelona will be very welcome.

As ever, if you have your own favorite things tell us about them on the message board.

Re: Any ideas? Barcelona is a great spot for MWC in part for the reasons you mention and in part because, well, it is a world-class city and the new Fira is the right size for the event.

Re: Any ideas? Thanks mendyk. I think its the weather & proximity to four continents: Asia, Latin Amerca, North America and of course Europe.

Re: Any ideas? Ha! I just asked the same question on one of the other Barcelona topics. It does seem odd; I don't usually think of Spain as being a hotbed of mobile development.

Re: Any ideas? CeBit should be enough to scare off anyone from even thinking about locating a big event in Germany.

Re: Any ideas? Hard to find a central European venue with enough hotels and transportation to handle a show of this size. They were talking about moving it to Germany if I recall but that seems to have gone away.

Re: Any ideas? It might be the weather, although the only people I've seen who aren't wearing jackets or winter coats are American and Brit boy-os.

Any ideas? Thanks Eds for preparing us to welcome all that great stuff. Will surely catch one or two of these during the trip.

I wonder why GSMA happens in Barcelona every year! Any ideas?

Re: Architecture The Sagrada Familia will take another 20 years, bu it is advancing, and the basic structure is complete. Get your tickets online now if you plan to visit, it is worth it!

Re: Ciudad Condal Sara, if you want the best tapas in an informal setting try Bar Celta (the best "Pulpo a Feira" in town) or Bar Cañete, near Teatre del Liceu (Ramblas)

Anyone going to Sagrada Familia should make reservations now. We had family from London this week and all the morning timeslots were gone.
