Mobil World Congress begins without a big name

The Mobile World Congress will take place this year in hybrid form, as an event on site in Barcelona and on the Internet. However, numerous big players are not involved.

The mobile communications trade fair Mobile World Congress starts on Monday without most of the large exhibitors, who otherwise make it the most important industry get-together. Among other things, in view of the corona risks, the smartphone world market leader Samsung, the network equipment supplier Ericsson and Nokia as well as Deutsche Telekom are staying away from the event in Barcelona.

The organizers talked about it until the very end, in order to bring the 30,000 participants together. According to media reports, the vast majority of visitors will come from Spain. Last year, the trade fair, which traditionally takes place in February or March, was canceled due to the corona pandemic. In 2019, more than 100,000 industry insiders and journalists came to the Mobile World Congress.

The fair, scheduled until Thursday, is to take place this year with a mix of online presentations and on-site events. One of the few highlights is likely to be the appearance of Elon Musk, which will be switched on via the Internet on Tuesday evening. The tech billionaire is building a network of satellites for Internet supply with the name Starlink with his space company SpaceX.
