Entry Requirements for MWC23

Prepare for MWC Barcelona with our checklist of documents and actions needed to enter the event.

Your checklist to enter MWC Barcelona

Here’s a handy checklist to guide your entry to the event this year. Please note, it’s vital that you complete these steps before arriving at the event. If you don't have the right documentation, unfortunately we cannot allow you to enter.

Step 1 Register by uploading your photo and ID

It’s mandatory for all MWC23 attendees to be fully pre-registered online before arriving at the event. Your identity will need to be verified before you arrive, so we’ll ask you for a photo and an image of your passport or EU national ID card.   

Without this check, entry will be denied.   

You can validate your identity with BREEZ, our facial-recognition ID validation service. It fast-tracks the process and also gives you touchless entry, with dedicated BREEZ lanes at the venue. Or you can choose our standard service to have your ID and photo validated by an agent. This process will take from 24-72 hours (dependent on volumes). 

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 MWC Barcelona 2023.

All attendees and exhibitors must download the MWC App to obtain your Digital Access Pass. You’ll need this access the event and any internal conference sessions or programmes.

The MWC App also ensures you can make the most of your experience by easily organising your schedule, enjoy networking features, join conferences and get inspiration from some of the most influential tech leaders.

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

Your Digital Access Pass will be available in the MWC App from February 2023. It’s all about adding convenience and security.

Your Digital Badge helps you make the most of the exhibition floor, get into conferences and hear talks by some of the industry’s major thought leaders.

If you see this symbol on your Digital Access Pass (image below), you’re also able to use the BREEZ lanes at the venue. If not, you’ll need to scan the QR code on your Digital Badge to gain entry. If you wish to enrol in BREEZ, please login to your registration account and select ‘Enrol in BREEZ’.

Collect your Networking Badge

We will once again provide a Networking Badge option for all attendees. This will display your name and company and have a QR code which you can use for lead retrieval. Print stations will be advertised here nearer to showtime.

Remember, the only way to access the venue, conference or programmes will be with your Digital Access Pass.
