受疫情影響,GSMA 正式宣布取消 MWC 2020

每年二月的業界盛事 MWC 全球通訊大會,今年將無法如期舉行,受到疫情影響,主辦單位 GSMA 剛才宣布取消今年 MWC。在過去一星期,多間手機品牌、電訊商及參展商退出,雖然昨日還公布展會繼續,但不足一日後再發聲明宣布取消。


“With due regard to the safe and healthy environment in Barcelona and the host country today, the GSMA has cancelled MWC Barcelona 2020 because the global concern regarding the coronavirus outbreak, travel concern and other circumstances, make it impossible for the GSMA to hold the event. The Host City Parties respect and understand this decision. The GSMA and the Host City Parties will continue to be working in unison and supporting each other for MWC Barcelona 2021 and future editions. Our sympathies at this time are with those affected in China, and all around the world.”

GSMA CEO John Hoffman 表示,疫情令到活動不可能繼續舉行,畢竟需要考慮當地西班牙巴塞羅那的安全及衛生環境,並且考慮疫情有爆發,而參展商及工作人員需跨境公幹,因此 GMSA 不可能再舉辦活動。有關決定得到巴塞隆納的尊重及諒解,雙方來年將會再度協作 MWC 展會。
