Canadian national carrier Telus will be among the companies participating in the second edition of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) Americas conference.

MWC Americas is the North American variant of the mobile tech-themed conference that’s usually hosted in Barcelona, Spain.

This year’s MWC Americas will take place from September 12th to September 14th, 2018, and will be hosted in Los Angeles, California.

“We’re always looking for ways to improve the experiences of our customers, which is why we’ll be in attendance,” a Telus spokesperson told MobileSyrup via email.

According to a February 5th, 2018 media release, MWC Americas will play host to approximately 1,000 companies “from across the mobile industry and adjacent industry sectors.”

“This year’s show will really illustrate how mobile is reshaping how media and content are produced and consumed,” said Michael O’Hara, chief marketing officer of the GSM Association (GSMA), in the same press release. “In this digital age, mobile is essential to driving innovation, enabling creativity and advancing economic growth.”

Telus will be joined by companies like Qualcomm, ZTE, Ericsson, as well as U.S. carriers including Verizon and Sprint.

MWC Americas first launched in 2017 and was hosted in San Francisco, California.
