Barcelona on track for in-person summer MWC21 - GSMA

Friday 12 February 2021 | 15:48 CET | News
Mobile industry association GSMA remains on track to hold this year's edition of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona from 28 June to 01 July in spite of ongoing concerns about the Covid-19 pandemic, reports EFE, citing GSMA CEO John Hoffmann. Following the cancellation of last year's event, the industry body announced in September that it intended to hold MWC21 Barcelona as a physical event in the summer of 2021. It has since been working "tirelessly" with the Fira de Barcelona venue, the City Council, the Generalitat and the Spanish government to make it happen, said Hoffmann.
