MWC Los Angeles Won’t Get a 5G Bump | Light Reading
The GSMA, the world’s biggest wireless industry trade association, said it expects its main US trade show to attract roughly the same number of attendees and exhibitors as the event did last year. That’s noteworthy considering US operators have been touting their 5G network deployment progress throughout much of 2019, as well as the potential of the technology to create a “fourth industrial revolution,” as Verizon executives are fond of saying.
Reed Peterson, the GSMA’s “showrunner” for the MWC Los Angeles event, said the association is expecting 22,000 to 23,000 attendees at this year’s show, which is scheduled to run October 22-24. He also said there will be around 800 exhibitors and sponsors, and that those numbers are roughly similar to those from last year’s event.
