Nvidia Withdraws From MWC 2020 due to Coronavirus

Last updated:

NVIDIA has revealed that it will not be attending Mobile World Congress 2020 this year over concerns about the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. 

Similar to LG and Ericsson, the company says it took the decision for the sake of the company’s employees, among others. The company apologized for its decision but says that it believes it is ‘the right’ choice in light of the public health concern.

Nvidia said in a short statement,

Given public health risks around the coronavirus, ensuring the safety of our colleagues, partners and customers is our highest concern,

The company added,

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.

Earlier this week, LG made a similar announcement, explaining that it won’t attend this year’s show due to the outbreak. Following that, Ericsson also announced that it has cancelled its MWC2020 plans in order to protect its employees
