There will be MWC 2021, but some of its elements will take place virtually.

It seems like yesterday when we announced the definitive cancellation of MWC 2020, but the reality is that half a year has passed since then. Still, the GSMA has already confirmed that the delivery of the event scheduled for 2021 continues, and that once again it will take place in the city of Barcelona. However, It will be a somewhat different MWC than what we are used to.

According exclusively to TechRadar, the body in charge of holding the event has confirmed that MWC 2021 will be held as planned, although in order to preserve the safety of the attendees, some elements will take place virtually.

MWC was one of the first major events canceled due to the pandemic.

The GSMA ensures that MWC 2021 will be carried out following sanitary recommendations

According to the GSMA in statements to the aforementioned portal, the preparation of MWC 2021 is being carried out together with health experts with the aim of ensuring that the event is held in a totally safe environment for both members and visitors. In this sense, they assure that do not rule out the possibility of resorting to a virtual alternative.

They also ensure that has been working on the organization of the event from the moment the cancellation of the delivery scheduled for March 2020 was announced. In this sense, they affirm that “it is a new and complex situation,” and they say they are learning all the time with the aim of taking all possible measures. that guarantee security.

And, although the idea is that the fair is carried out in person, they understand that there will be those who cannot, or do not want to attend due to the associated risk or the restrictions imposed by each of the countries. Therefore, they are developing virtual alternatives that will allow those interested to experience first-hand some of the elements of the fair from their homes

“At MWC, there were 2 million meetings, millions in deals made, and valuable social interaction linking our industry. For those who cannot travel at the time, we are working to make some items virtually available. ”

Although not specified what will these “virtual elements” really consist of, it is very likely that the solutions adopted by the GSMA will be similar to those adopted by CES 2021, whose face-to-face celebration was totally canceled a few days ago, and will finally take place digitally between the first and second week of January.
