The list of major tech companies pulling out of MWC 2021 in Barcelona is growing

Ericsson, Sony, Nokia and Facebook have all said they won’t be attending the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in June 2021, the reason being the ongoing pandemic.

In a company statement, "Sony Mobile has taken the decision that it will not be participating in MWC 2021. As the world increasingly shifts towards digital and online opportunities to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Sony Mobile will communicate in ways that can deliver our exciting product news to a wider audience."

Nokia also stated that, "The health of our employees, customers and partners is of paramount importance to us," company said in a statement. "Given the international nature of the event and with the global vaccine roll out still in its early phases, we have made the considered decision to instead participate in only the virtual event."

As the list of non-attendees grows, Ericsson was the first major tech company to announce they wouldn’t be attending. "In view of the continuing impacts from Covid-19 and our primary consideration towards our people, their health and well-being, we have decided not to participate at MWC 2021," Ericsson said in a statement. "The decision, whilst regrettable, reflects our precautionary approach to managing the pandemic from a people and travel perspective whilst vaccination programs are rolled out globally."

MWC 2021 will also be holding a virtual platform during the event, but at this stage, it is unclear, other than Nokia, which companies will still participate on this platform, of those that have pulled out of physically attending in person.

The pandemic has clearly created a need for virtual platform forums and with software such as Zoom; this has clearly paved the way for a new era in virtual attendee events, on a par with the invention of email, that allowed us to send a letter without the need to post it in a physical letterbox.
