NVIDIA pulls out of MWC 2020 over coronavirus, joins LG and Ericsson

Visitors of this year's MWC in Barcelona won't be able to check out Ericsson's new technologies there

Chipmaker Nvidia Corp has now withdrawn from Mobile World Congress 2020 (MWC 2020), the telecom industry's biggest trade show, citing the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus (nCov).

GSMA, the organizing committee for the Mobile World Congress understands the risk of the virus but also values the importance of keeping the show running.

Ericsson said as one of the largest exhibitors, it has thousands of visitors in its hall each day and even if the risk is low, the company can not guarantee the health and safety of its employees and visitors. "We regret not attending, but believe this is the right decision", it added.

To display the business's profile and also advancements, Ericsson will certainly take the demonstrations and also material developed for the MWC Barcelona to clients in their residence markets with neighborhood occasions called "Ericsson Unboxed".

But this year is bound to be different.

Börje Ekholm, President and CEO of Ericsson, said: "The health and safety of our employees, customers and other stakeholders are our highest priority".

LG will no longer hold a keynote at MWC, while ZTE, whose 5G device rollout is under way, will only send a delegation to Barcelona, but won't be holding a press conference as it originally announced.

The GSMA estimates that between 5,000 and 6,000 people visit Mobile World Congress.

"I hope there are no more announcements like those" by Ericsson and LG", Colau told Catalan television channel TV3 on Friday.

We strongly urge exhibitors and attendees to implement appropriate guidelines and protocols as suggested by the WHO and other health authorities to contain and mitigate against any further spread of the virus.

Like Ericsson, LG has announced that it will hold events to show its products. "Advocating across the industry through government and ministers, policymakers, operators and industry leaders has never been more critical". In addition to its health risks, the coronavirus has had a domino effect on global companies and industries. At the same time, the company said it would continue to monitor and assess the severity and impact of the coronavirus on the upcoming MWC event.

China's Huawei Technologies HWT.UL and ZTE Corp 000063.SZ have confirmed their participation while ordering at-risk staff isolate themselves ahead of the event or drafting in European colleagues to staff the event.
