MWC Barcelona 2021 rescheduled for June

Yordan, 23 September 2020

The Mobile World Conference in Barcelona is traditionally taking place in the last week of February or the first week of March. Due to COVID-19, MWC 2020 was cancelled, and now the GSM Association announced next-year’s version is scheduled to take place between June 28 and July 1, 2021.

MWC Barcelona 2021 rescheduled, to take place in June

It is a bit sad that journalists, mobile company employees, partners and guests won’t visit the Spanish city in its off-season period, but MWC is keeping the announcement schedule on point - the last week of February will see the MWC Shanghai 2021 take place - the official dates are February 23-25.

The conference in the Chinese city is aimed at Asia Pacific markets and brands that usually don't make it to Barcelona.

John Hoffman, CEO of GSM Association said in a press release that partners and clients remained dedicated to ensuring MWC21 Barcelona is a success. According to him, the conference is “an experience that brings the whole industry together.”

Switching the dates between Shanghai and Barcelona is a way to keep the annual cycle of events going on, since the MWC Los Angeles 2021 will remain as planned - at the end of October.
