Can I pay by wire / bank transfer?

This facility is only available for large payments (currently €5,500 incl. VAT) and will become automatically available in the system when you reach the payment stage.

The deadline for making payment is 9 February 2024. As there are no onsite facilities, payment must be made prior to this date. Registrations after this date must be paid for by credit card.

How can I claim VAT back?

The GSMA does not promote a tax compliance and recovery service for MWC. This is due to differing standards of service and delivery available to different attendees and exhibitors in different countries. You may wish to undertake a search in your country for a reputable service provider and/or engage with your accounts or auditors for a recommendation specific to your organisation and country.

I can no longer attend the event, can I substitute my pass?
