There are many events which, due to the spread of the Coronavirus, are postponed or even canceled. The Mobile World Congress 2020 is among them.

La GSMA, the organizing body behind the Spanish fair, announced that handling this emergency would have been too complex in such an event. In addition, many companies that were supposed to attend, decided to withdraw for the same reason. A shareable choice, given that the event attracts hundreds of thousands of onlookers from all over the world.

A significant economic loss is estimated for both the host city and the mobile device market, but we are sure that the precautions are much more important.
