GSMA announced that the MWC20 has been cancelled. Very bold and wise move by the organization to not put business over safety and health of host country Spain and the global attendees. The coronavirus outbreak is devastating and our deepest sympathies at this time are with those affected in China, and all around the world.

We will surely attend next year and can’t wait to witness the world of innovation!
