Mobile World Congress

The Mobile World Congress (MWC) is a World Congress of Mobile, held at the Fira de Barcelona, Spain, and is considered the most important in its sector worldwide every year. This congress on global technology and R&D aims to promote international collaboration in mobile wireless communications. It was founded by Delson Group Inc and received strong support from authorities in various countries and key industries.

MWC/WMC is the space where the largest number of presentations on advancements in wireless and mobile communications occurs. The summit offered a unique opportunity for engineers, scientists, and investors in the areas of wireless systems and mobile applications to stay up-to-date with technical developments, connect with global leading experts, and engage with executives in the 4G mobile movement.

From 2006 to 2019, MWC attracted thousands of visitors to Barcelona each year. The 2020 edition was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. In 2021, although with significantly reduced capacity, it was held again, drawing just under 50,000 attendees, 300 exhibitors, 600 speakers, and 350 startups over 100,000 square meters. In contrast, the 2019 event brought together over 100,000 people across 120,000 square meters.

Eat Inn Platform

The Eat Inn Platform is a new startup born in Mallorca and custom-developed by our Balear Online team. The core concept of Eat Inn is to provide tourists and residents not staying in hotels access to restaurants in the wide variety of accommodations spread throughout the cities. In other words, Eat Inn is like a Booking.com for buffet-style dining, offering accessible offers for everyone. This includes everyday use and specific occasions, such as a romantic weekend at a 5-star hotel in your area.

The platform offers numerous benefits:

  1. Hotels can reduce food waste by taking advantage of the unused spaces and increase profits by offering a buffet at the price of a menu of the day, always fresh and of good quality, aligning with the goals of the 2030 Agenda to reduce food waste.
  2. Customers can enjoy a high-quality and diverse meal at the price of a daily menu, conveniently located, with the assurance of the platform and the best hotel chains. Additionally, they can plan and budget their food costs for upcoming trips, as the platform allows reservations up to 30 days in advance for multiple meals.

If you haven’t explored the platform yet, we recommend giving it a try by visiting www.eatinn.net.
