Mobile World Congress is so big that it takes over an entire street with temporary pavilions and huge monitors that broadcast keynote addresses from one of the halls. The show is so massive, in fact, that beginning in 2013 it will move to the Fira Gran Via, a new exhibition center closer to the airport that opened late last year. Though the modern facilities will have their appeal, you can't beat the Montjiuc location for character. The Venetian Towers in the distance serve as the show's main entrance from Placa d'Espanya.
