(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) Some 150 Israeli companies will be featured in the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week, one of the world’s top telecommunications exhibitions. The Israeli companies make up the conference’s fourth-largest delegation, after the U.S., the U.K., and France.

Scheduled for Feb. 22-25, the Mobile World Congress will feature more than 2,200 exhibitors. Organizers expect some 100,000 visitors, including global mobile industry leaders, high-tech companies, and cellular service operators and providers, as well as the general public. 

The Israel Export and International Cooperation Institute’s pavilion will feature 140 of the companies, and overall, one of every 13 booths will be hosted by an Israeli telecom company.

The Israeli pavilion will serve as a platform to one of the largest business events held at the exhibition, orchestrated by the Israeli Foreign Ministry’s trade administration. Israeli companies featured in the pavilion will present visitors with new cyber-defense technologies for mobile devices, smart-house technologies, digital medicine innovation, and more.
