MWC Barcelona attendees have always been required to present photo identification to verify their identity when they pick up their badge onsite and each time they enter the venue using their printed badge. In 2016, we began recording this information and sharing with the Mossos d´Esquadra to strengthen our overall city and venue security plan.
For 2020, attendees are required to provide their passport or EU National ID card details as part of the registration process; they cannot complete their registration without it. Further, attendees must present their passport or EU National ID cards when collecting their badge onsite and those using a physical badge will also need to present passport or EU National ID cards upon entering the event at access. Photocopies of ID, driving licenses or any other forms of identification will not be accepted.
