Thursday 16 April 2020 | 08:57 CET | News
The event, which attracts well over 100,000 visitors to the Catalan capital, was one of the first earliest casualties of the coronavirus pandemic when the 2020 event was cancelled in February. "In these trying times, it is ever essential to look forward to the future," said GSMA CEO John Hoffman, adding that MWC Barcelona 2021 "will be part of the economic recovery process as we exit these trying times." The event's Host City Parties include Barcelona City Council, Generalitat de Catalunya, Spain's Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism, Fira de Barcelona and Tourism de Barcelona.
