MWC 2020 officially canceled
We already saw it coming a bit when one manufacturer after the other canceled his plans for MWC this year: the stock market is canceled. MWC has now opted not to organize a trade fair this year. All planned presentations and other events will be canceled.
The reason for canceling MWC 2020 is the corona virus. This infectious and fatal disease is predominantly prevalent in China, where many major telecom brands come from. Every year thousands of people from all over the world travel to the Mobile World Congress to launch and network new products there.
The entire stock market was canceled after countless cancellations
LG was the first manufacturer to cancel its plans for MWC, followed by Ericsson, Nvidia, Amazon, Sony, Intel, Vivo and MediaTek, among others. LG and Sony, among others, would present new smartphones at MWC, which they will now probably do at their own events. Xiaomi and Samsung were still planning to come.
When one major manufacturer after another withdrew in recent weeks, MWC initially planned to take the plunge next Friday to decide whether or not to continue the trade fair. After an urgent consultation this afternoon, that decision has already been made tonight. Canceling the exhibition will be a big disappointment for the city of Barcelona, which counts on thousands of visitors every year. The editors of Android Planet are also present at the fair every year to provide you with the most important technical news.
