Welcome to our Nordic Partner Summit in Stockholm on February 11th.

Why you should attend Huawei Horizon?

Our world is changing. Everyone talks about digitalization, but also about the fact that we need to change the way we live in order to preserve our planet.
How does AI work with sustainability? What can each IT company do to create a better future? With innovative solutions we can all contribute.
We will listen to industry leaders talking about their challenges and how they overcome them. Costumers will share their experiences and you will meet all our partners and get a chance to network and explore future technologies.

Measures due to Coronavirus development

Huawei as a global company follows the development in detail regarding the challenges of the Coronavirus.
We are helping all governments with their struggle to keep numbers of newly infected down, we have taken on precautious measures on all markets where we are present.
In line with these global initiatives we kindly ask all to help us by following these guidelines:

• If you have arrived to the Nordics from China after January 28th, within two weeks prior to the Huawei Horizon conference in Stockholm on February 11th, we kindly ask you to not attend at this year’s conference.

• The guidelines apply to both employees of Huawei and our guests.

This is just a precaution as we take the well-being of all participants very seriously and also want to support the overall goal of keeping the virus from spreading further globally.
