5G will take centre-stage at this year’s MWC Shanghai on 26-28 June. The event will showcase immersive experiences of the technology in sports, performing arts and culture.

China Mobile will be giving attendees the chance to explore activities such as traditional Chinese dance and calligraphy in full-scale ultra-HD and experience a holographic basketball training camp in a virtual reality sports arena.

The firm will also show a live example of 5G-enabled tele-mentored surgery on Friday 28 June. Antonio de Lacy, head of the Gastrointestinal Surgery Service at Hospital Clinic of Barcelona, will provide live guidance from the event to the operating room in Shanghai East Hospital.

“This promises to be the most exciting MWC Shanghai ever as 5G becomes a reality,” said John Hoffman, CEO of GSMA, the event organiser. “Under the theme of ‘Intelligent Connectivity’, 5G will be prominent all across MWC19 Shanghai and it will be exciting to see a glimpse of that new world. Along with event favourites such as the Innovation City and 4YFN, attendees will get to experience the impact of Intelligent Connectivity first-hand, across the conference and exhibition and the many programmes and events taking place. We look forward to enjoying the many new amazing experiences at MWC19 Shanghai.”

All seven exhibition halls at the event will be covered by live 5G networks and a number of exhibitors will perform 5G-enabled demonstrations and activities, including Ericsson, Lenovo, Qualcomm, Rohde & Schwarz and more.
