Statement on MWC Shanghai
January 31, 2021
MWC21 Shanghai is a celebration of resilience and resolve. It provides a platform for people to come together and push the industry and society forward.
We are looking forward to welcoming the mobile ecosystem back to Shanghai and the world in February. Leveraging China’s extraordinary response to Covid and its commitment to growing the 5G landscape with the global community, the GSMA proudly brings you, ‘Connected Impact’, MWC Shanghai.
Despite the challenges we face as the world continues to battle the pandemic we are heartened by the unwavering support from the Chinese governments and industry stakeholders and believe that this event sends a positive signal about what 2021 offers.
MWC Shanghai 2021’s exhibition spans four impressive halls with leaders and innovations from both mobile and vertical industries. We are also bringing our virtual platform to MWC for the first time to allow participants from around the world to experience the excitement with us. Many industry leaders will contribute virtually, and registration is now open for all participants.
We are committed to putting on a safe event. The health and safety of our exhibitors, attendees, staff, and the people of Shanghai remain our top priority, and we will continue to adhere to all government protocol and guidelines regarding Covid.
The GSMA continues to monitor global circumstances and is working closely with Shanghai authorities. We will incorporate the latest guidance, regulations, and technologies to create a safe environment in which collaboration, networking and deal-making can thrive. The GSMA is also committed to communicating with our partners and customers in a timely fashion. Working through the dynamic circumstances, we are optimistic for all that can be accomplished when we come together.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Shanghai in a few short weeks.
