What security checks will be carried out?

The safety and security of attendees at Web Summit Rio is our primary concern. Security checks will be mandatory when entering venues. These checks will be in adherence with Brazil’s security and health protocols at the time of the event.

We’re asking attendees not to bring bags to Web Summit Rio. If you must, please note that only small bags are permitted inside the venue. 

There are a limited number of lockers available at main registration. These are available on a first come first served basis.

Can I enter the venue with a camera?

If an attendee plans to film at any of our 2024 events, we require a full itinerary, in advance, of when and where they intend to film. In general, exhibition stands, the show floor and outdoor open areas are permitted to be filmed. Filming of stages, backstage areas, in the lounges, workshop areas or meeting rooms is strictly prohibited.

Can I bring my own food to Web Summit Rio?

You are permitted to bring your own food. 

I have special dietary requirements. Will this be catered for?

We have tried to ensure that there are suitable food options available to all attendees, and have worked with the catering suppliers to accommodate a range of dietary requirements, including supplying vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options.

Will the food vendors accept cashless payments?

In order to limit the handling of money during the event, reduce queuing times and improve health and safety standards, all food and beverage catering units inside the venue will be entirely cashless. Please remember to bring your card with you, as payments in cash will not be accepted. 

Will I be able to purchase beverages onsite?

You’ll be able to purchase a range of soft drinks, along with water, coffee and tea. 

Will I be able to bring my own reusable water bottle? 

​​We’re aiming for a plastic-free event, so we encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottle. There will be water fountains around the venue where you can refill your bottle.

Will there be a lost and found?

Yes. There will be a lost and found located at the Info Point in Pavilion 3.
