MWC 2020 in Barcelona cancelled

After many companies had already cancelled their participation in the MWC (Mobile World Congress) in the previous days, the entire trade fair in Barcelona has now been cancelled.

Until recently, it was still said that the operator was taking numerous security precautions, but that the event would take place in any case. For example, Asians from the region of origin should be excluded from the event. The risk was to be reduced through identity checks and health certificates, and there were to be numerous increased hygiene measures on the grounds. All this is now overdue.

As John Hoffmann, CEO of the GSMA, which organises the Mobile World Congress, announced to Bloomberg, it is impossible to organise the event due to the corona virus.

Certainly the news that the manufacturers wanted to present to us there will be brought to the public in a different way. However, we should also be prepared for the fact that the availability of products from the Asian region will decrease in the coming weeks and months and that prices will rise as a result. This not only affects smartphones or other “mobile” devices, but also hardware and numerous other areas.
