The GSMA has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s MWC Barcelona, originally scheduled for 24-27 February in Barcelona.

MWC Barcelona is one of the world’s most important technology conferences and we value our engagement with the GSMA, the broader industry and the EY Alliance community. We look forward to returning to MWC Barcelona in 2021.

For now, EY is helping companies transform into adaptive digital enterprises and win in the market. The convergence of AI, big data and IoT – all powered by 5G – is just one of the topics EY is focused on.

However, accelerating technology in an increasingly connected world means that industries are colliding, and expansive ecosystems are evolving as new entrants emerge. Companies need to become more adaptive and embrace business transformation to drive growth and transition into the next wave of business.

We have collected a variety of interactive use-case demos, workshops and short EY live talks so you can discover more about our ecosystem relationships, including our alliance partners, technology consulting teams and the full breadth of our global industry professionals, allowing you to re-imagine how your company can win in the market and what is required to get there.
