GSMA MWC Shanghai will return with the much-anticipated 2023 edition, set to take place at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) from June 28–30, 2023. The event will include global mobile operators, device manufacturers, technology providers, vendors and content owners.
Asia Pacific has grown to be one of the most vibrant and advanced markets for mobile and digital technologies. The mobile industry in China generated 5.6% of its GDP, reaching nearly $900 billion in 2021. China and the wider Asia Pacific region also house a comprehensive mobile ecosystem that is activating the development of advanced technologies including 5G and 6G as well as the technological capabilities driving the metaverse such as AI and XR.
“MWC Shanghai convenes the mobile, technology and adjacent vertical industries across China and Asia. It’s where stakeholders gather to network, exchange ideas and create impact. It would have been nearly impossible to bring back MWC Shanghai if not for the determination and commitment of our Host City, Shanghai, and our valued partners, China Mobile, China Telecom, China Unicom, Huawei, ZTE and SNIEC, and we are truly grateful to them,” said the CEO of GSMA Ltd., John Hoffman.

The city of Shanghai welcomes global industry partners to gather in Shanghai and participate at MWC Shanghai to showcase the best technology innovation and digital transformation. We welcome the global mobile ecosystem to reconvene at MWC Shanghai and look forward to the advancement of a globally harmonized development of the innovation ecosystem.”
