Update: After posting, it seems like MWC has been canceled
Many companies are adopting BCP (Business Continuity Plan) and avoiding traveling for staff due to the Novel Coronavirus (or COVID-19) but not Xiaomi. They have officially announced that they will be traveling to Barcelona to attend MWC (Mobile World Congress)(24th to 27th Feb 2020) and to announce new smartphones and smart products on 23rd February 2020.
Some excerpt from their announcement:
“We will make sure that all employees traveling from China show no symptoms and will have been out of China for at least 14 calendar days before their arrival in Barcelona for our launch event and MWC.
We will make sure all senior executives of the company scheduled to take part in any kind of activities and meetings will have been out of China for at least 14 calendar days prior to our launch event and MWC.”
Hopes that everything will go according to plan for Xiaomi’s team.
