After LG and Ericsson announced their withdrawal from the MWC 2020 conference, NVIDIA also informed the host of the MWC 2020 conference that they decided to withdraw from participating in the MWC 2020 conference because they were very worried about the coronavirus epidemic.
NVIDIA ’s official statement said:
“Given public health risks around the coronavirus, ensuring the safety of our colleagues, partners and customers is our highest concern.
MWC Barcelona is one of the world’s most important technology conferences. We’ve been looking forward to sharing our work in AI, 5G and vRAN with the industry. We regret not attending, but believe this is the right decision.
We’re grateful for GSMA’s leadership and continued efforts to ensure the safety of all attendees.”
At the same time, the media also reported that Samsung may also plan to withdraw from the MWC 2020 conference because people familiar with the matter revealed that many Samsung employees in South Korea and the United States have canceled their travel plans to Barcelona, although Samsung has not publicly announced whether to participate in the MWC 2020 Conference.
At present, three companies LG, Ericsson and Nvidia have announced their withdrawal from the MWC 2020 conference. It can be predicted that more companies may announce their withdrawal from the MWC 2020 conference.
