The GSMA will continue hosting the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona until 2024 after agreeing a one-year extension to its existing contract following the cancellation of this year's event, reports Europa Press. The deal was announced by Spain's minister of finance Maria Jesus Montero following a meeting of the council of ministers. She added that the GSMA has offered the Spanish organisers a "very low rate and advantageous conditions for MWC 2021" after Spain's Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation agreed to cover its expenses for this year's edition.
