ACCREDITATION APPROVAL

Accreditation is reserved for working members of the media and industry analysts only. This includes editors, reporters, producers, camera crews, still photographers and industry analysts. The GSMA reserves the right to deny an applicant a press/industry analyst pass if sufficient credentials are not provided.

The GSMA reserves the right to limit the number of attendees per outlet/organisation.

The GSMA reserves the right to modify this policy without public notice and to revoke previously issued MWC20 Barcelona accreditation/registration at any time.

A history of being registered at other GSMA events or other industry events does not guarantee approval or waive the accreditation requirement.

Misconduct or misrepresentation of your position, outlet/organisation or staff could prevent you and your entire organisation from attending future GSMA events.

If you do not qualify as accredited press or an industry analyst in any of the above categories, then you should not apply using the Press/Industry Analyst accreditation process. You will instead need to register as either a Conference Attendee or Exhibition Visitor through the MWC20 Barcelona registration page. If you have already been declined, please do not reapply for Press/Industry Analyst accreditation.
