As always, our main priority is the safety and security of our guests. We’ve established the following measures to ensure that VidCon São Paulo is a safe and fun place for everyone who attends. Please make sure you’ve read VidCon São Paulo’s Rules & Regulations  before arriving.


All VidCon São Paulo attendees will exchange their tickets for their credentials (a badge and wristband) at the entrance of the event. Credentials must be worn at all times (including if your ticket is valid for two days — you must keep wearing the wristband until the event is over). This is to verify that everyone attending — or within a particular access-controlled area — is authorized to be there. You will not be permitted into any VidCon São Paulo event space without your credentials. Security is stationed throughout all indoor and outdoor areas of the event at the SP Expo. Please be prepared to show your credentials at all entrances and special access points or if requested by a VidCon São Paulo security member.


Each VidCon São Paulo entrance will include metal detectors and bag searches. In order to provide a smooth and safe experience while entering the event, please review our restricted items and bag types below and leave these items at home! If you arrive with a restricted item, you will be asked to return the item to your vehicle, hotel room, or home OR to dispose of it. VidCon São Paulo will NOT have a place to store your restricted items and staff will not hold them for you. Express lanes for those without bags will be available at multiple access points. Accommodations will be available for those with disabilities and exceptions will be made for medical conditions. Please see a VidCon São Paulo staff member if this applies to you.
