Space Hub Yorkshire attend Mobile World Congress 2024

February 26 @ 8:00 am - March 1 @ 5:00 pm

Space Hub Yorkshire attended Mobile World Congress earlier this year to explore international collaboration opportunities and see what the future holds for space technologies in the world of connectivity. Held in Barcelona, the event brought together industry leaders, innovators and enthusiasts to showcase ground-breaking innovations across the mobile technology landscape.

It was noticeable how space-technologies are becoming prevalent in every industry, and there was a real focus this year on how these technologies could advance businesses and improve productivity.

5G technology took centre stage, with demonstrations highlighting its transformative potential in various sectors, from healthcare to transportation to satellite communications. The proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and their integration with 5G networks underscored the emergence of a hyper-connected world. Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) continued to captivate attendees with immersive experiences and practical applications, spanning gaming, education, and enterprise solutions. Sustainability was a key theme, with companies emphasizing eco-friendly practices and the role of technology in addressing environmental challenges.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) advancements were evident, and all the Prime companies were advertising their uses for AI, along with opportunities for adoption. Moreover, discussions on cybersecurity highlighted the importance of protecting data and privacy in an increasingly interconnected world, and related how these space-technologies could improve security.

Space Hub Yorkshire were showcased on the UK Space Agency stand and featured in the Department for Business and Trade handbook. This provided a great opportunity for SHY to standout on the international stage and there was great interest from overseas companies, with several meetings being held. Exhibiting companies such as Filtronic, Sitehop, and Blackdice Cyber were flying the flag for Yorkshire and it was fantastic to see the buzz at their stands.

Overall, MWC 2024 provided a glimpse into the next frontier of space-related technology, emphasising the fusion of connectivity, innovation, and sustainability to shape a smarter, more inclusive future.
