Balloon in Barcelona

March 13, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Just finished working at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The event is a showcase for the Telecoms industry and was attended by more than 67,000 delegates and business leaders from across the globe. It was held at the Fira de Barcelona, a huge exhibition complex at the foot of the Montjuic mountain atop which sits the National Palace. The fabulous fountains and light displays at the foot of the mountain were made famous during the 1992 Olympic Games.

With the help of my fantastic team of photographers, we shot more than 10,000 images of seminars, networking events, exhibits, awards and just about everything else that went on during the four day event. 

In previous years, there were private concerts held at the Palace for the attendees of the congress with such names as Craig David, Duran Duran, Will-i-am, Jamie Cullum and Duffy performing. This year the format changed to an outdoor event. A ballerina was suspended beneath a helium filled balloon which was hoisted high above the venue and accompanied by a spectacular sound and light display.
