Infobip Response to GSMA Cancellation of MWC 2020

Kristijan Barlek

On February 12th the GSMA announcedit had to cancel this year’s MWC due to coronavirus-related concerns. The tradeshow was scheduled to run between February 24th and 27th inBarcelona and draws on average around 100,000 delegates from over 200countries. At the heart of this decision is the apprehension around the ease ofspread of the virus combined with the long incubation period before a personmay demonstrate symptoms. We value ourparticipation in important industry bodies like GSMA and deeply respect thestep it has taken to protect attendees.

Given this outcome, Infobip would like toreassure its peer network that representatives will be in touch withindividuals to reschedule planned meetings and demos including those for our Mobile Identitysolution which provides omnichannel user authentication & verificationservices for enterprises and MNOs as well as use cases for the next generationof short messaging, RichCommunications Services (RCS).

Additionally our presentations planned for theGSMA Summit on Sunday 23rd February on Mobile Identity, the seminaron RCS which was due to take place on Monday 24th and the Chatbotspanel scheduled for the 26th will be made available online or aswebinars.

If you had a business ornetworking meeting scheduled with Infobip at MWC, please expect a call from theappropriate account manager to reschedule.You can access the full GSMAStatement on MWC Barcelona 2020 from John Hoffman, CEO GSMA Ltd here.
