Of course, basically every telecommunications company on the planet - as well as every "telecommunications-adjacent" company on the planet - has been at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona this week. Among the companies with the largest presence has been Saudi Arabia's STC.

STC has been at MWC with an integrated exhibition about services related to 5G - such as drone aircraft - as well as digital services and solutions in different domains such as IoT, AI and cybersecurity. It has also been participating in a special exhibition through its "This is Saudi Arabia" platform, which is mainly concerned with the rediscovery of Saudi Arabia through a new perspective, highlighting tourist sites and national heritage in an innovative, technical manner.

General manager for corporate communications at STC Mohammed Abaalkheil said that STC has been participating as a sponsor of MWC for the sixth year in a row. He added STC is signing a number of important agreements to enable digital services with major international companies in telecommunications and information technology industry.

He also noted MWC is befitting the status of STCas a member of the Board of Directors of the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSMA), the largest organisation of telecommunications operators and manufacturers in the world.

MWC is the world's largest conference on smartphone technology. More than 100,000 people are expected to have attended this year's edition by the time it wraps up on Thursday.
