Lara Hernández, Gerard Esparducer and Pedro Gallardo had the opportunity to see how the Mobile World Congress has without any doubt become an unavoidable appointment for technology companies.

The start of this edition was 5G technology, technology that opens a wide range of possibilities and enables new business models. Perhaps one of the most shocking was being able to see a surgical intervention with a remote surgeon. Hospital Clínic de Barcelona is the first hospital in Spain that incorporates 5G technology that allows doctors around the world to operate a patient remotely.
We could also witness the presentation of the new folding mobile phones brought to us by manufacturers such as Huawei. But the MWC19 has not only been mobile and 5G, the MWC has been also: Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, facial recognition, biosecurity, augmented reality and virtual reality, autonomous cars, drones, Industry 4.0, IoT and much, much more ….
Additionally, we had the opportunity to visit the stands of our customers and see how ERNI is helping them to co-create new solutions and products based on cutting-edge technologies.
So, in an event of this nature could not miss ERNI, we took the opportunity to meet with Angels Chacón, the Minister of Enterprise and Knowledge of the Generalitat de Catalunya and share with her the growth plans we have in Spain with the creation of more than 100 new jobs in the next two years.
It has been a fantastic experience and we hope to participate again next year.
