Google ditches Mobile World Congress 2021, the world’s biggest phone show

Final yr, the world’s largest phone show, Mobile World Congress, held on to the thought of internet hosting an in-person occasion throughout the COVID-19 pandemic , at the same time as main exhibitors stored pulling out — and the dominoes could also be falling on this yr’s show as effectively.

Google simply introduced that it’ll not exhibit at MWC this yr. It’s the biggest title thus far, following main telecom infrastructure suppliers Nokia and Ericsson in addition to Sony and Oracle.

Right here’s Google’s full assertion:

In February, the GSMA (which runs Mobile World Congress) , requiring solely an array of normal precautions, mask-wearing, and a unfavourable COVID-19 check inside 72 hours of arrival, none of that are thought-about adequate to stop the unfold of the coronavirus. The org was not planning to require vaccinations at the moment. Now that the vaccine state of affairs is enhancing and one other massive title has bailed, I’m curious if organizers will change their minds.
