Barcelona, Spain (PRWEB) February 01, 2013
The Mobile World Congress in Barcelona attracts tens of thousands of people from different parts of the world to attend the world's largest exhibition for the mobile industry. Each attendee visits the city with the hope not only of attending the Congress, but to soak in as much of Barcelona as possible. In 2012, the MWC attracted over 67,000 visitors from 205 countries. With such a large number of visitors to accommodate and hotel rates soaring, alternative accommodation options such as home exchange have started to appear and revolutionize the accommodation industry.
The MWC Congress begins on the 25th of February 2013. The high accommodation demand in Barcelona and rates over the top, a 6 night stay in a hotel in Barcelona during the week of the Congress costs approximately 1,200 Euros. With home exchange, these high accommodation costs disappear making home swap one of the best options you can choose from, not only because attendees can save up on the expense of their hotel bills, but also because attendees will discover the city like locals. Those that decide to home exchange will also get to interact with locals who will provide them with a list of the best restaurants, coolest bars, and places to visit.
Home exchange is an attractive concept in the travel industry and it is expected to grow exponentially in 2013. With the current economical situation and people looking for new experiences and convenient ways of travel, swapping homes couldn't be a better option. Atthending any congress around the world is yet another opportunity for attendees to discover the advantages of travelling with all the benefits of living in a real home and discovering cities like a true local.
