GSMA Cancels MWC Los Angeles

GSMA Cancels MWC Los Angeles

The GSMA had to cancel its third major event of 2020. The industry group had to call off MWC Los Angeles due to travel restrictions and ongoing health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event was to be held in partnership with trade group CTIA, and was scheduled to run from 28 October to 30 October. Last year, MWC Los Angeles drew more than 750 exhibitors and 22,000 attendees from 100 countries. The move follows the cancellation of  Barcelona and Shanghai events due to COVID-19.

In a press release, the association said it was disappointed to cancel the event. “Health and safety remain our top priority, and we will not do anything that could impede or reverse gains made around the world. We are thankful for the medical community, essential workers and those working to eliminate this virus.”
