The organizers of the Mobile World Congress (MWC), a leading tech innovation showcase held annually in Barcelona


The organizers of the Mobile World Congress (MWC), a leading tech innovation showcase held annually in Barcelona, said yesterday that the event will still go ahead despite a number of major exhibitors pulling out due to concerns over virus.

With little more than a week to go before the trade fair is due to start, cancelling the MWC would cost more than €500 million.
