BARCELONA, Spain -- As wIth all good things, 3GSM also had to come to an end.
Tthe conference shut down today and everyone started to leave. What was impressive was the number of people who were trying to squeeze in one more meeting. The booths were packed. Not just with the people running in to see what free items were still available, but for questions and follow-up.
The final attendence did hit the expected 50,000 mark. On Feb. 13, the first day of the show, 34,900 people had attended, 40 percent higher than last year's first day. In fact, day-one attendance in Barcelona was greater than the total attendance for 2005, held in Cannes, France.
Let's begin the countdown: 365 days to go before 3GSM World Congress 2007.
Better rest those feet.
