What you need to know
- MWC 2021 is set for early March with virtual elements incorporated.
- The 2020 show was canceled as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
- A similar trade show, CES, will also take place virtually.
MWC 2020 was one of the first trade shows to be canceled this year in a move that proved to be the forerunner to a swathe of cancelations across industries and countries. The event is now slated to run next year, but GSMA, the hosting body for MWC, doesn't plan to be caught flat-footed.
Speaking to TechRadar about its plans for the upcoming year, a GSMA spokesperson said:
MWC is now set to happen in March 2021. If the COVID-19 pandemic is still as disruptive then as it is now, the GSMA will be poised to take a gamble on a novel-online experience. It won't be an ideal situation, but it would be better than nothing.
