Last year, the world’s largest telephone exhibition “Mobile World Congress” (Mobile World Congress) has always insisted on the idea of holding a face-to-face event during the COVID-19 pandemic. Even if the main exhibitors continue to withdraw, dominoes may become a reality. Also fell on this year’s show.
Google just announced that it will not exhibit at MWC this year. It is by far the largest name, second only to the major telecom infrastructure providers Nokia and Ericsson, as well as Sony and Oracle.
This is Google’s complete statement:
Based on our current COVID-19 travel restrictions and agreements, Google has decided not to participate in the Mobile World Congress this year. We will continue to work closely with GSMA and provide support to partners through virtual opportunities. We look forward to this year’s event and see you in Barcelona in 2022.
In February, the GSMA, which runs the Mobile World Congress (GSMA), insisted that it will continue its potential super-spreader activities in June this year, only requiring a series of standard precautions within 72 hours of arrival, including wearing masks and COVID-19 Negative tests, none of which are considered sufficient to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. The organization did not plan to request vaccinations at the time. Now that the vaccine situation is improving and there is another famous person, I am curious whether the organizers will change their minds.
