Build-up & Dismantling Accreditation

Access during build-up and dismantling

As part of our Committed Community, the MWC Barcelona 2021 multi-layered safety approach, all contractors and suppliers must use the ‘Digital Contractor Pass’ to access the venue during build-up and dismantling.This means that wristbands will no longer be provided as a means of access. All personnel needing to access the venue during these periods must present their Digital Contractor Pass on their smartphone browser, no app download will be required.

Exhibitor and Contractor staff registered for the event will not require a Digital Contractor Pass.Those registered for event days will have a 'Digital Badge' for the Event that will also grant access during the build-up and dismantling periods. This means that individuals who need access during build-up, event days and dismantling should only be registered once. The Digital Badge is available in the official ‘My MWC’ app.

Contractors and suppliers needing access will first need the Exhibitor to set their company up as a ‘Service Provider’ in the MWC Barcelona registration system. Once this step is complete, the nominated person from the Service Provider will be sent their own login details to the registration system where they will be able to register all of the personnel that are required to be on-site during these periods.

A unique and valid email address and Passport / EU National ID information will be required for each registration as part of the service provider’s allocation. Once registered, each individual will receive email confirmation and instructions for how to use their Digital Contractor Pass. The same registered email address will subsequently be used to communicate key information about testing and other related announcements.

Access during Event days

The Digital Contractor Pass will only grant access during build-up and dismantling. Contractor staff who require access during the event days must be registered by the Exhibitor using their exhibitor staff allocation and will be able to gain access using the official MWC ‘Digital Badge’. Contractor staff registered with an event 'Digital Badge' can use this to access during the build-up and dismantling periods and will therefore not require a Digital Contractor Pass.

Committed Community


To enter Fira Barcelona, the MWC21 venue, all personnel must have a valid, negative rapid test result. The test result will be valid for 72 hours. For attendees, staff, visitors, and suppliers, rapid tests will be available at MWC relevant testing centres (pricing details to be announced).

Instructions on testing will be available here soon.

Health Self-Declaration

Once testing has been completed and before entering the venue each day, all personnel must submit a health self-declaration to activate the Digital Contractor Pass.
