Amazon pulls out of MWC 2020 over coronavirus fears

Amazon has now joined mobile industry giants in LG, NVIDIA, Samsung and ZTE in pulling out of Mobile World Congress this year over coronavirus fears.


Amazon pulling out of MWC 2020 is a big deal as it's one of the largest companies in the world, and a gigantic presence at any trade show. The company told TechCrunch: "due to the outbreak and continued concerns about novel coronavirus, Amazon will withdraw from exhibiting and participating in Mobile World Congress 2020, scheduled for Feb. 24-27 in Barcelona, Spain".

Amazon wasn't the first and most likely won't be the last to pull out of Mobbile World Congress, with Sony announcing shortly after Amazon that it would not be attending the mobile-focused event in Barcelona, Spain over the same concerns over coronavirus.
