MWC Barcelona 2020i


MWC Barcelona, formerly known as Mobile World Congress, will be held in the Spanish city from February 24 to 27, 2020. It is the world's largest exhibition for the mobile industry. This year's event will focus on a new era of intelligent connectivity powered by 5G technology.


MWC Shanghai is the latest of many major tech events, including MWC Barcelona and CES Asia, that have been pulled in light of coronavirus fears and travel restrictions.

The annual MWC Barcelona event was decimated by the pull-out of major exhibitors, including telecoms gear suppliers Nokia and Ericsson, as well as mobile network operators Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom, AT&T, BT, Orange and NTT Docomo.

Chinese smartphone maker Vivo has joined other major tech companies including LG Electronics, Ericsson, Intel, Sony and Amazon Web Services that have withdrawn participation from the upcoming MWC Barcelona event.

Japanese companies NTT Docomo and Sony join several other companies – including Amazon, LG Electronics, Ericsson and Nvidia – that have withdrawn from MWC Barcelona because of concerns about the coronavirus outbreak.

Amazon is the fourth company to pull out of MWC, one of the telecoms industry’s biggest gatherings, this week following LG Electronics, Ericsson and Nvidia.

Swedish telecoms gear maker Ericsson’s decision to not take part in MWC Barcelona followed moves by Chinese rivals Huawei and ZTE to send a smaller contingent to the trade show this year.

Chinese phone brands such as Huawei, Xiaomi and Oppo have dominated trade show in Barcelona, but the coronavirus outbreak spreading from China could affect their presence this year.

Huawei and Oppo are among the world’s largest Android smartphone vendors that have scaled back the size of staff taking part in this year’s edition of MWC Barcelona amid the coronavirus outbreak.
