Venue Access

At MWC19 there are two ways to access the venue.


Enrol in our biometric recognition programme to enjoy contactless entry at all access points. You will not need to show ID or scan your badge to enter the venue.

Enrolment could not be easier. All you need to do is upload a clear, ‘passport’ style photo and give your consent when you register. If you have already registered, just log back into your account and enrol from your homepage.

We will also be offering enrolment in our registration and access areas in the city of Barcelona and at the venue. Your event badge must still be visible to our staff and you should always carry your Passport or EU National ID card with you, should you be asked by our security teams.

Printed Badge Lanes

If you are not enrolled into the biometric recognition programme, you will access the venue through the printed badge lanes.  Please ensure that you have the following items available for entry:

Your event badge + valid Passport or EU National ID Card [photos / photocopies / driving licences will not be accepted]


Your event badge + Digital ID*

Digital ID

The Digital ID is available in the MWC19 event app.  You can activate your Digital ID by uploading a profile photo in your registration account either whilst you are registering or by logging back into your account.  Once you have collected your badge and had your photo validated, your Digital ID will be automatically activated
