It added that moving MWC21 Barcelona, initially scheduled for the first week of March 2021, allows GSMA to contend with external circumstances related to COVID-19.

GSM Association has been organising the event annually since 2006 in Barcelona, Spain, where governments, ministers, policymakers, operators and industry leaders across the broader ecosystem discuss developments in the technology sector with telecom as a common thread.

The global telecom sector event also sees participation from top Indian industry leaders and top government officials and ministers.

Bharti Airtel chief Sunil Mittal, Communications Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and Telecom Secretary Anshu Prakash were also expected to attend the global event early this year.

Around 1 lakh people from across the globe attend the event every year.
