Novel coronavirus outbreak has impacted industries globally especially the ones that are heavily dependent on China. The newest victim of this outbreak is Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2020. We had been hearing from brands pulling out of the annual conference since last week.
The statement put out by GSMA states that it was not possible for the GSMA to hold the event due to global concern regarding the coronavirus outbreak, travel concern, and other circumstances.
Since the MWC event has been canceled, all the companies that originally planned to introduce their new devices are expected to announce a separate event sometime next month.
