Things to keep in mind.
Stay Connected: In an event as massive as MWC, you may not always get the chance to be up to date about your favorite vendors. Staying connected via social media is an easy solution to this dilemma. Following their accounts is a good start; for example, you can follow @hexnode on Instagram and @thehexnode on Twitter for timely updates regarding our booth. You can also check our hashtag #HexnodeMWC2020 for a quick dose of Hexnode related news.
Plan and book ahead: The event brings in hordes of people from around the world, so you must plan your trip to Barcelona diligently. Accommodations should be booked in advance; once the event gets rolling, it would be quite hard to find a room nearby. If you are planning to have a meeting with a vendor, talk to them in advance regarding it, and set up a meeting.
Install the MWC app: It is essential that you download and install the official MWC app. It gives you information regarding your favorite vendors like their stall numbers, demo timings, etc. You can get the iOS app and Android app at the Play Store and App Store respectively.
