Oh my! What do you do when you have one of the largest Mobile technology conferences in the World and a planned Bus Transit strike taking place during the same week? Yep… that’s what’s taking place in Barcelona, Spain next week during the annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) hosted by the GSMA. Some details… The metro and bus workers from TMB, the main public transport operator in the metropolitan area of Barcelona, have announced plans to strike during Mobile World Congress which will be held 27th February through 1st March 2012. Negotiations between the government and the unions are ongoing in an effort to resolve the issues.
For event attendees you can take comfort though as GSMA has developed a comprehensive contingency plan and is ready to activate this plan should it become necessary. The contingency plan outlines alternate transport options for getting to and from the venue, and also describes the additional security measures the police are putting in place to ensure the safe passage of our attendees.
Perhaps a savvy mobile developer will hit it big by developing an app to help!
