Our partnerships related events[edit]

Our team participates in several conferences relevant to our partnerships. Some of them have a global scope, and some are regional or country specific.


Mobile World Congress: Barcelona 2016[edit]

Mobile World Congress is the largest Mobile related event in the world. At this event, we talk to current and prospective partners in the mobile industry. Wikipedia Zero and Preload-related partnerships are the main focus. This year, we were also invited to speak in 2 different panels:
