GSMA offers deals to premier MWC attendees

November 1, 2010

Rating: Platinum & Gold passes Plus low cost flights & accommodation

To ensure MWC 2011 attendees get the very best out of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2011 conference and exhibition, its sponsors – the GSMA – are offering a number of special passes. Plus they are promoting special deals with the conference’s official partner for air travel and accommodation. The GSMA have highlighted three passes – the Platinum, Gold and Silver passes.
Prices for these passes kick off at € 2,099 for the Silver pass compared to the basic entry fee of € 649. A Gold pass will set you back € 2,699 while the premium Platinum pass comes in at € 4,999.

If you want to attend the Congress Party and Awards Celebration held on the Tuesday evening you can add €200 to a regular, Silver or Gold pass.

What do you get with the Platinum deal? It includes all the benefits of the Gold Pass plus a VIP networking cocktail reception with industry leaders.

Also included are an exclusive networking dinner and (new for this year/2011) a private version of the ‘My MWC’ social networking exclusively available for Platinum Pass holders. Learn more here.

The GSMA claims the Gold Pass gives holders direct access to the most elite in the industry. See the list of who you might be able to meet here.

Of course, Countdown2MWC can claim to have met two out of the confirmed six speakers. We’ll let you guess which ones. Here’s a clue, we interviewed them about  Phishing or chips.

We should also say that a Gold pass allows you exclusive access the VIP Networking Lounge plus complimentary Congress Lunches passes.

You’re also awarded a copy of the Wireless Intelligence report and a white paper from Juniper Research.

It’s possible to enjoy up to 20 per cent discounts on international flights to Barcelona through the official airline sponsor – Star Alliance. See here .

For those already within Spain there are discounts of up to 30 per cent with Spanair.

The official  accommodation provider is BBP. So it is useful to know what they offer so you can see what other deals might offer by contrast.

See you in Barcelona.
