GSMA swaps MWC21 Barcelona and Shanghai dates

Wednesday 23 September 2020 | 15:00 CET | News
Mobile industry association GSMA has decided to reschedule the dates of its Mobile World Congress (MWC) shows in Barcelona and Shanghai to contend with the Covid-19 pandemic. In a statement, the GSMA said MWC21 Shanghai will now take place from 23 to 25 February 2021, with MWC21 Barcelona scheduled for 28 June to 01 July 2021. The aim is to hold the GSMA's biggest event – MWC21 Barcelona – as a physical event, albeit with "virtual elements to complement the overwhelming demand to convene physically," said the industry body.
