Mobile World Congress 2013:
Jolla was present at MWC 2013, already before their first phone was out, but they didn't have an own stand until the next year.
Phone was not ready to be introduced, it came out later on November 27, 2013, but Jolla introduced the first Sailfish OS SDK, enabling developers to get deeper into the system and start building their first Sailfish OS apps. Here are some links from our friends sites:
