Entry requirements for MWC Barcelona 2024

Get ready for action with our checklist of everything you need to enter the futuristic world of Fira Gran Via.

Step 1 Register by uploading your photo and ID

It is mandatory for all MWC24 attendees to be fully pre-registered online before arriving at the event. Your identity will need to be verified before you arrive and so we will ask you to provide information from your passport / EU National ID card and a recent photo.     

Without this check, you will be unable to access your Digital Access Pass and will not be able to enter the event. 

For information on how and why we need to validate your identity, please see our FAQs

Remember, all attendees must supply a valid mobile number for essential contact purposes. Please ensure that any contact details that you provide, including mobile phone number and email address, belong to the person who is attending the event.


Step 2 *Download the MWC series app*

Step 2 Download the MWC series app

Your Digital Access Pass will be available in the MWC series app from early February 2024. This will not only give you access at the perimeter of the event but also to gain access to internal conference sessions / programmes (subject to pass type / approvals).

The MWC series app also ensures attendees can make the most of their experience by easily organising their schedule, enjoy networking features, joining conferences and getting inspiration from some of the most influential leaders from our industry.

Make sure you stay logged in, throughout the event, and that you always have sufficient charge to access the app at any time within the venue.

Step 3 Activate your Digital Access Pass

Your Digital Access Pass will be available in the event app from February 2024.

Once activated, your Digital Access Pass is all about making it easier to attend the venue with added convenience and security. 

Step 4 *Access the venue*

Step 4 Access the venue

We have two pedestrian entrances, one at the north of the venue and one at the south. We recommend any attendees visiting 4YFN, halls 6 to 8.1 or any of our partner programme sessions, to use the north entrance for access. Our website gives detailed information on getting to the venue.

When you arrive at the venue, you will need to open your Digital Access Pass to show to our agents at the perimeter. Once this has been checked, you will enter the access scanning lanes. Here we will scan the QR code on your Digital Access Pass and provide you with a networking badge.

Your networking badge will only be given to you when you first access the venue. If you are returning, you will only be asked to scan the QR code on your Digital Access Pass.

The networking badge can be used inside the venue for lead retrieval purposes and access to conference and other sessions (subject to eligibility). It cannot be used for perimeter access or access to the Ministerial Programme.

If you leave your networking badge at your accommodation, we do have a small number of reprint desks at all entrances.
