Organizers of the World Mobile Congress said Wednesday that the world’s top mobile trade fair would be canceled following an exodus of industry heavyweights over coronavirus fears.

The GSMA, which organizes the annual show which had been due to run in Spain from February 24-27, said in a statement it “has canceled MWC Barcelona 2020 because the global concern regarding the coronavirus outbreak, travel concern and other circumstances, make it impossible for the GSMA to hold the event.”
