Qualcomm joined the list of several major tech companies that will not attend Mobile World Congress this year. It is yet another blow for the organizers of the largest mobile industry event in the world.

“While we appreciate the health and safety measures being put into place by the GSMA for MWC Barcelona, we have decided that it is in the best interest of our employees and customers for Qualcomm’s participation to be virtual this year,” the company said in a statement.

Qualcomm is by no means the only major company opting for a digital appearance at MWC this year. Google, Nokia, Ericsson, Sony, and Oracle have all pulled out of this year’s show entirely. Samsung and Lenovo have announced that they will attend digitally instead of their traditional in-person appearances.
