Due to the impact of the virus happened in Wuhan , the Global Association for mobile communication systems (GSMA) announced the cancellation of the world mobile communication congress 2020 (MWC), which was scheduled to be held in Barcelona from February 24 to February 27.
The MWC conference is a grand event for the communication industry, but due to the epidemic, LG took the lead in announcing to withdraw from MWC 2020 a week ago. The products that were to be released were also to be reissued on a certain date. Subsequently, Ericsson, NVIDIA, Intel and other enterprises also announced to withdraw from MWC 2020. In the end, only a few enterprises, such as oppo and Xiaomi, chose to attend the MWC conference, and the Global Association for mobile communication systems announced the cancellation of mwc2020.
In response, John Hoffman, chief executive of the Global Association for mobile communication systems, said in an email statement that the conference had been “impossible” due to public health events. Barcelona, as the host city, also expressed understanding that the annual MWC conference will be held in Barcelona, and the cancellation of MWC is truly unprecedented.
Last year, the number of participants of MWC conference has exceeded 100000, so for this year’s MWC conference, all major communication enterprises have produced trump brand products and are ready to compete. The cancellation of MWC 2020 is regrettable. However, it is expected that in June, MWC Shanghai 2020 will be held in China as scheduled, displaying flagship and concept products of major communication enterprises.
The virus have been controlled better and better in China and we believe soon it is getting clam down and we wish see you next time in MWC.
