MWC Barcelona is planning to conduct an in-person event in 2022. While doing this the health and safety of staff, workers, exhibitors, visitors, suppliers, partners, and the local community, remain the number one priority. The GSMA developed and rolled out its health and safety plan, Committed Community for the MWC series in 2021 and events in Barcelona, Shanghai and Los Angeles continued safely. Developed and updated in partnership with health experts, the Host City Parties and, Fira Barcelona, the plan reflects global developments, local guidance and, the GSMA’s experience in bringing people together over the past year.
John Hoffman, CEO GSMA Ltd. said: “Success for MWC is only possible through the support of public-private partnerships and first responders support given the dynamic nature of the pandemic. I am grateful for them and the partners and experts with whom we are working to ensure our response and plans are sensitive to the situation, reflecting everything we’ve learned about managing at this moment. Health and safety remain our top priority, and our updated Committed Community plan reflects that. I look forward to seeing you in Barcelona in February.”
To enter the venue, staff, workers, exhibitors, visitors, suppliers and partners will need to upload documentation certifying their vaccination status, a certificate of recovery, or a negative COVID test through the registration system or to the MWC App. Quirónprevención, the official medical partner for MWC22, will validate these documents and will also provide hospitality and medical support over the phone in 10 languages, 24/7 for the duration of the event. FFP2 masks will again be required, occupancy monitored, ventilation enhanced and, cleaning and sanitation increased.
Registration is now open for MWC Barcelona 2022.
