Two initiatives to reduce the impact of the cancellation of the MWC Barcelona 2020Barcelona Opportunity Week is a hotel, gastronomy and cultural initiative being promoted jointly with the city’s main economic stakeholders to attract new visitors and maintain those who already had travel arrangements booked. The other initiative is the Barcelona Tech Spirit, a series of meetings promoted by the city’s entrepreneurial sector as part of Barcelona Tech City. The City Council is providing support to maintain activities programmed for investors and technology companies.
This morning’s meeting with the city’s main economic stakeholders took stock of the effects of the cancellation of this year’s MWC. Both the initiatives being organised will take place on the days the congress was scheduled for, to reduce the impact the cancellation has on the city as far as possible.
Everything was ready for this year’s congress, but the goal is to be positive and start preparing the 2021 edition and subsequent editions to make them better than ever.
