Mobile World Congress is the world’s largest gathering for the mobile industry held in the Mobile World Capital Barcelona. One more time the city hosts the Mobile World Congress, the largest gathering in the world in terms of technology for mobile, being the place where suppliers, producers and distributors will submit all the developments in this unstoppable world of mobile technology. A worldwide event and inexcusable for the best professionals from all over the world meet.

4 days of intense movement, meetings and, ultimately, a relentless sway of information and new contacts. But as everything has to not be working, at the end of each day participants and attendees of Mobile World Congres leave the fairgrounds to meet again, in a more friendly, relaxed and jovial atmosphere. That is when the Southern Cross opens its doors, or rather, extends its pier to accept with pleasure and enthusiasm to the guests in a perfect venue.

Since we are in the coastal city of Barcelona, what better way to unwind from a hard day to boarding a boat? The Southern Cross is a classic sailing yacht from 1962 with many stories to explain, the largest ketch built in Scotland ordered by British Royal Family. It is moored in the exclusive Royal Sailing Club, in the heart of Port Vell, is 35 meters long and can accommodate up to 80 people in port for a meeting or party.

On reaching the boat, visitors are greeted with a glass of champagne and invited to visit the interior, not just the three decks, but the most intimate parts, like the cabins and the engine room. Guests relax in the great room or lounge bow summer, next to the bar, enjoying the night views of Barcelona and the warm and friendly atmosphere that permeates into the Southern Cross. They can enjoy a varied appetizers, “Spanish tapas”, music and finish the day in the best possible way.
