FORGET THE ROYALS: ER's Coren is the real King of Spain

Royalty came to the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona last week. And no, I don't mean just King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia of Spain who opened the event. Or the Duke of York, though he was there too - on Tuesday - promoting British trade interests. The real star of the show was EventsReview.com's own Robert Coren who stepped into the breach at the eleventh hour to present the GSMA's gala award ceremony in the city's Palau Nacional on Tuesday night. Appearing alongside our host were Hollywood stars, Wesley Snipes, Juliette Lewis, supermodel Caprice and R&B singer, Craig David. According to reports, Senor Coren acquitted himself with wit and panache, compering the show and facilitating the award presentations in eight categories from Mobile Innovation (Spinvox voice to text) through Mobile Entertainment (Skipping Stone and BlogTV) to Nigeria Communications who won the Mobile in the Community Award for their Rural Telephone Project - Phone Lady Initiative. The bigger, more recognised players were there too - with Vodafone winning best commercial and best roaming product awards and Motorola and Vodafone picking up gongs for the best handsets. The latter's Chairman and CEO, Jorma Ollila collected the prestigious GSM Association Chairman's award for an outstanding contribution to the development of the GSM standard worldwide.
