MWC 2016: Google’s Android Village

Google’s presence was prominent at this year’s Mobile World Congress. Although they did not announce any significant releases, they certainly did not go unnoticed by attendees.

This year, Google brought a sense of fun to MWC with their Android village situated in between halls. The area was home to a smoothie and hot chocolate stand, whereby you could order a range of flavoured drinks in exchange for payment of a high-five! It was a really effective touch and the lively team behind the counter proved popular with attendees.


To continue the theme of ‘fun’, Google partnered with several exhibitors and graced their stands with Android statues, stickers and most importantly, the pin badges. There were 87 different pin badges to be collected by attendees, all hoping to get a full collection and to win bronze, silver and gold pin prizes.


Attendees could also ‘Androidify’ themselves at the interactive stations. You could print out your creation and place it within a lanyard or have it painted onto a water bottle. The picture below shows PageSuite’s Marketing team looking pretty chuffed with their freebies!
