- HMD Global – the home of Nokia phones has taken the decision to withdraw from MWC 2020 - Our key focus has been to safeguard the health and well-being of employees and other stakeholders

HMD Global has been carefully monitoring the situation following the outbreak of Covid-19. After much deliberation, we have decided to cancel our participation at MWC Barcelona, 2020. MWC Barcelona has always been a key event in our annual calendar and we were very excited to showcase our new products to our partners, customers, media and fans. However, the health and safety of our employees, customers, and stakeholders is our highest priority. We believe the prudent decision is to cancel our participation at Mobile World Congress and want to express our sincere thanks to the GSMA and other authorities for their tireless efforts to address the challenges resulting from Covid-19, and they have our full support as they move forward. We will update the media, our partners and customers on a new timeline for our product announcements.
