Although last month the exhibitor stated conclusively that IFA 2021 will return to the “normal” exhibition format in September, but in the face of the intensified epidemic, the reality is ultimately difficult to achieve.Not long ago, the IFA organizers officiallyconfirm, Will cancel this year’s exhibition in Berlin. “Unfortunately, many global health data have not reached the standard as quickly as expected.” IFA wrote in a press release. The same goes for the other participants.”
Last year’s IFA had already faced many restrictions when it was held, and the epidemic situation at that time may have been a little bit slower than it is now. Judging from the global situation in the past few months, the exhibitor’s statement that it will return to “normal” already gives people a feeling of boasting. The decision to cancel it now is not surprising at all to be honest. In the press release, the official did not mention the plan of online activities, but some said that he would focus more on IFA 2022. On the other side, the MWC 2021, which will be held in June, has no intention to cancel offline events. Now that IFA has retired, and many companies have stated that they will not go to Barcelona, will GSMA eventually change its mind?
