On Wednesday the GSMA announced the cancellation of MWC Barcelona 2020. Regretfully, this means that the MWC20 Barcelona seminar, ‘Mobile identity, enabling the digital world’ to be held on Tuesday 25 February, has also been cancelled. We are sure that you will be as disappointed as we are about this news, but the health and safety of our attendees has always been of paramount importance to us. This difficult decision was made with due regard to the safe and healthy environment in Barcelona and Spain, and because of the global concern regarding the coronavirus outbreak. The related travel concerns and other circumstances made it impossible for the GSMA to hold the event.

 
The Host City Parties respect and understand this decision and the GSMA will continue to work in unison with them in relation to MWC Barcelona 2021.

Our sympathies at this time are with those affected in China, and all around the world.

We appreciate your support and understanding and we look forward to welcoming you again at future events.
