Nokia joins Ericsson in bailing on MWC, with Oracle, Sony also reportedly out
Nokia has joined Ericsson in withdrawing from the GSMA’s MWC trade show in Barcelona, Spain, in June, and reports indicate that Oracle and Sony have also quit.
In a statement emailed directly to Light Reading, Nokia said: “After careful consideration, Nokia has decided not to have a physical presence at Mobile World Congress Barcelona 2021.
“The health of our employees, customers and partners is of paramount importance to us. Given the international nature of the event and with the global vaccine roll out still in its early phases, we have made the considered decision to instead participate in only the virtual event.
“We understand that GSMA is planning a range of online activities and we look forward to working with them to understand how we can participate.”
