LG releases announcement of the cancellation of participation in MWC 2020 conference
Since the current coronavirus epidemic has not yet been resolved, it is obviously not a good idea to bring people from all over the world together.
It now appears that LG is aware of this problem, as they have just issued a statement stating their cancellation of participation in this year’s MWC 2020 conference.
LG stated in the statement:
LG Electronics is closely monitoring the situation related to the novel coronavirus outbreak, which was recently declared a global emergency by the World Health Organization as the virus continues to spread outside China.
With the safety of its employees, partners and customers foremost in mind, LG has decided to withdraw from exhibiting and participating in MWC 2020 later this month in Barcelona, Spain.
This decision removes the risk of exposing hundreds of LG employees to international travel which has already become more restrictive as the virus continues to spread across borders.
In lieu of its participation in MWC, LG will be holding separate events in the near future to announce its 2020 mobile products.
LG Electronics thanks its supporters and the public for their understanding during these difficult and challenging times.
LG is not the only company that canceled the press conference at MWC 2020 because of this epidemic. Previously, ZTE also stated that they would cancel this press conference at MWC 2020 and would only guarantee their presence.
