The annual MWC Barcelona trade show will be back in all its glory this year, and that’s great news for the mobile industry.
The restrictions brought in in response to the Covid-19 pandemic have forced us into a different way of living in different ways, and given the scale of the sacrifices made, it seems almost rude to complain about the restrictions facing salons professionals such as the one that arrives next week, namely the MWC 2022.
