Our multi-layered safety approach, Committed Community, applies the latest technology and scientific advice to create an environment that addresses the risks associated with Covid-19.
No matter how you travel – with our trusted partnerships, we provide layers of precautionary procedures, at every step of your journey, including and not limited to required frequent testing and monitoring.
Our multi-layered safety approach includes prevention, protection, mitigation, monitoring and maintaining safety. Layers include frequent testing, contact tracing, touchless environments, re-vamped catering, occupancy monitoring, upgrades to facility infrastructure, increased medical staff – and personal commitments like adhering to social distancing.
The plan was developed in coordination with and approved by the Catalan health authorities, responsible for the regulations governing MWC21, including the Department of Business and Knowledge of the Generalitat de Catalunya and the Technical Committee of the PROCICAT. According to the Sectorial Plan of Fairs and Congresses, the plan satisfies the directives and recommendations for event organisers.
To create a safe environment, we need all attendees to contribute.
The steps are simple, starting with registering online. You also have the option to participate in BREEZ when verifying your ID. It’s our online facial recognition technology that fast-tracks the process.
First things first, register for MWC21, including uploading your photo and ID. Learn more on our Check In To Get In page.
Next, make sure you download the My MWC App. It’s where you can upload your Covid-19 test results (starting 24th June for attendees and 14th June for exhibitors), book a test, fill in your daily health declaration, and access your digital badge for touchless entry. So its use is mandatory this year!
