Is there a minimum age to attend MWC?


The GSMA acknowledges that there may be circumstances in which a guardian has to bring an individual younger than 16 years of age (a “Minor”) to the Event in the absence of adequate childcare. The guardian must accompany the Minor at all times and is responsible for ensuring both the Minor’s safety and the Minor’s compliance with these Terms. Guardians are asked to help maintain a professional, disturbance-free environment. Please note that the Event environment may not be suitable for all Minors.

Any guardian desiring to bring a Minor to the Event must sign a waiver and release of liability prior to entering the Event. In order to help prepare for your visit, please keep in mind that the Event includes:

  • Loud noises and music
  • Significant visual stimulation (including bright lights, large screens and demonstrations)
  • Large crowds
  • State of the art technology

Should you find yourself in need of a moment of quiet while attending the Event, we invite you to visit our minors friendly space.

For safety reasons, Minors are not permitted entry to the Event venue during build-up and dismantling. No exceptions are provided. Individuals 16 years of age and older must have a pass to enter the Event.
