Mobile World Congress (MWC) will be joined by global iPhone developers thanks to a deal between IDG World Expo and Groupe Speciale Mobile Association (GSMA) to host the Macworld Mobile event.
The GSMA has announced that it will hold its first event for Apple developers at the forthcoming Mobile World Congress, tech news site Unthinkable reports.
"The developments we are announcing today, particularly the launch of Macworld Mobile which will target the critical Apple developer community, will serve to make App Planet and Mobile World Congress the epicentre for the app world," said Michael O'Hara, chief marketing officer of GSMA.
The iOS Developer Conference by Macworld Mobile will offer one whole day dedicated to the training of iOS developers, as well as technical seminars on how to use the many tools and applications created by developers.
GSMA has also entered a deal with Research In Motion and Hewlett-Packard to include both BlackBerry and Palm in the event.
MWC will be held between 14-17 February in Barcelona, Spain, next year.
