“Helsinki Ice Hall offers better connections to the participants arriving to the meeting and more flexibility in the practical arrangements of the venue,” Nokia said in a statement.

The meeting starts at 2 pm Finland time, with the doors opening two hours before that. Nokia shareholders, along with regulators, have to give the okay to complete the sale of Nokia’s device business to Microsoft.
