Some 2,000 high-tech officials left Israel on Sunday to participate in the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, which opens Monday. El Al, Arkia and Air Europa reinforced their flights to the northern Spanish city.

According to estimates, a total of 3,000 Israelis are expected to attend the MWC this week.

Some 150 companies will present their products during the event alongside 1,500 companies and 67,000 visitors from 205 countries.

Israel has sent the fourth largest delegation to the conference after the United States, the United Kingdom and France, and Israeli representatives have already scheduled some 3,000 business meetings.

In addition, four Israeli applications are nominated in the prestigious Global Mobile Awards competition which will be held during the event, including the Waze mobile navigation app which is competing in the main category, Judges Choice – Best Overall Mobile App.

More than 50 of the Israeli companies are displaying their products at the prestigious exhibition for the very first time. 

The official Israeli pavilion is organized for the fourth year in a row by the Israel Export and International Cooperation Institute (IEICI). It includes three display areas, a business meeting compound and an interactive application display, which includes dozens of Israeli-developed apps.
