Samsung will not attend MWC 2021 either | Digital Trends Spanish
The cascade of cancellations suffered by the MWC in 2020 is repeated.
After several technology companies such as Ericsson, LG, Amazon, Sony, Intel, Nvidia, Nokia or Facebook announced their withdrawal from the event to “preserve the health of their workers and attendees”, the South Korean giant Samsung, one of the main exhibitors of the fair, has announced that it will not attend the MWC in 2021 either in person.
The company has released the news in a brief press release picked up by local media. In it, it alleges that – like the rest of the technology companies that have dropped out at the event – the cause is to preserve the safety of its employees, partners and customers in the context of the global pandemic.
“The health and safety of our employees, partners and customers is our number one priority, so we have made the decision not to exhibit in person at this year’s MWC,” said the company. “We are looking forward to participating virtually and continuing to work with the GSMA Association and our industry partners to drive new mobile experiences,” he adds.
Despite the multiple casualties, it seems that the GSMA (The organizing body of the MWC) do not give up on your idea of holding the event, one of the three most important in the world together with the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas and the IFA in Berlin (Germany). It is expected that the fair will host this edition on its stage more than 600 speakers from various sectors, such as mobile telephony, healthcare cloud or finances.
