Mobile World Congress Midweek Recap: Parties, Pics, John Cleese

Fiksu MWC Booth

An international team from Fiksu has joined the other 90,000 people from the mobile industry this week in Barcelona for Mobile World Congress. Two days into the conference, there’s already been a ton of excitement; it’s hard to believe we still have two days left!

We kicked off the week with an intimate cocktail party co-hosted with our friends at Liquid by PCH. It was great to gather with the leaders of our partner companies as well as our brand, agency, and game clients that would be joining us throughout the week in the Mobile World Congress App Planet.

On Monday, Fiksu debuted our biggest and best tradeshow presence yet. As you know, we recently announced our new look and new products, and this week we have the two-story booth to match. Take a look. (Click for larger versions.)

As if all of the above wasn’t exciting enough, Fiksu was honored to be nominated for a GSMA Global Mobile Award. We attended the award ceremony, which some call the “Oscars of Mobile,” and died of laughter as the one and only John Cleese played emcee. How cool is it that John Cleese said the word Fiksu when announcing our nomination? We aren’t going to lie about the fact that we were pretty star struck and it would have been hard to resist asking for a selfie if we got to go onstage to accept the award from him.

Unfortunately, we were not named the winners and didn’t get our selfie, but we were thrilled to be up against some truly groundbreaking mobile marketing campaigns and companies.

If you’re at the show, make sure to check us out in booth 8.1H22. If we haven’t already piqued your interest in stopping by, come for the delicious hot chocolate complete with Fiksu-branded marshmallows.
