‘Re-convening is a must so, adapting is paramount,’ says GSMA CEO
With this year’s Mobile World Congress Barcelona less than two weeks away, the GSMA is releasing additional details on how it is supporting virtual participation in the event. GSMA said that it expects one-third of participants to be virtual, and that it is aiming to attract 35,000 in-person attendees to the Fira Gran Via. That attendance figure is significantly scaled down from the usual 100,000+ people who come from all over the globe, but still a massive event in the time of Covid-19, which last year forced the cancellation of the event altogether.
Microsoft Teams is the official video conference and meeting partner for MWC21, and Teams has been integrated into the digital event platform, MyMWC.
