Overview

The pandemic drove change at an unprecedented rate, riding on a wave of connectivity. Join Accenture’s virtual program at MWC Barcelona to explore and harness that change to drive new business growth, and to capture the value of tomorrow for society, people and the planet.

We believe that creating sustainable value starts with a vision – and we bring examples of both to #MWC21 through our signature research, latest thinking and client success stories.

Highlights of our program include:

  • Technology Vision 2021 – technology trends impacting business and IT leaders.
  • Fjord Trends 2021 – looking from a human perspective at what’s next for business, tech and design.
  • Industry convergence – we look through the lens of experience across industries, functions and geographies, at defined and designed solutions that unleash speed and scale.

We look forward to meeting you and bringing the MWC Barcelona 2021 theme of ‘Connected Impact’ to life!

We are excited to be shortlisted in the GLOMO awards!
