If THESE 2020 has been able to take place in Las Vegas, in the month of January, the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, which was to be held in February, has had to be cancelled at the last minute because of the COVID-19. And currently, the organizers of these two major events in the world of tech are already planning for the editions 2021.
In the month of June, the organizer of THESE had expressed his intention to organize the edition 2021 in Las Vegas, according to sanitary standards. But this week, he indicated that ultimately, the THESE 2021 will be entirely online. ” In the Face of the pandemic and the health concerns growing global concerning the spread of COVID-19, it is simply not possible to meet in any security of tens of thousands of people in Las Vegas in early January 2021 to meet and do business in person “, explained Gary Shapiro, president and ceo of the CTA, which organizes ces each year.
For its part, the GSMA still hesitates
In regards to the Mobile World Congress, the organisers, the GSMA, still hesitates. It has just confirmed to the website Tech Radar that the edition 2021 will be taking place. However, for the moment, the GSMA is not fixed yet on the format to adopt. ” We are working to have the MWC 2021 is a must-see event. We constantly monitor the situation, as we have done with MWC 2020. This includes the search for expert advice in health and safety “, said a representative.
According to TechRadar, the association wants to organize a physical meeting. However, according to the evolution of the health situation, it does not exclude the possibility of doing an event 100 % virtual as THESE, which will be held in the month of January. And even if the situation allows the GSMA to make a physical occurrence, there will necessarily be an adaptation for all those who, because of the restrictions on travel, will not be able to go to Barcelona. ” At MWC, there were 2 millions of meetings, millions of transactions and social interaction valuable that binds our industry. For those who cannot travel at this time, we are working to make certain elements available virtually “, indicates the association. The latter has been particularly affected by the pandemic, because the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona generates a good part of his annual income. Also, the GSMA has had to lay off 20% of its employees and reduce premiums.
