Getting through the health checkpoint,

into Money20/20 and back to business, in real life.

Each day, you’ll need two things to get into the show: your Money20/20 badge and a wristband, which you’ll pick up by passing through a government health checkpoint at the Rai. A new wristband is required for each day of the show.

Facemasks aren’t mandatory inside Money20/20 but they will be required in the checkpoint & testing areas.

There are 2 ways to pass through the checkpoint each day and get your wristband:

1. Proof of vaccination

OR

2. Negative Covid test results

Option 1: Proof of vaccination

Step 1: Bring your proof of vaccination and photo ID with you to the venue each day

Step 2: Head to the checkpoint, where your proof of vaccination will be checked and you will receive a wristband for the day

Step 3: Head to badge pick-up to collect your badge, or to the main entrance if you already have your badge

Step 4: Enjoy the show!

If you’ve been fully vaccinated, brilliant - no Covid test required for you to enter the show. Just bring your proof of vaccination or EU Digital COVID Certificate, and your photo ID, to the show with you each day to get through the checkpoint.

The government requirements for proof of vaccination can be found here. If you’re travelling from outside the EU, the proof of vaccination will need to be in paper form. The checkpoint can accept proof of any vaccine that has been approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or is on the Emergency Use Listing of the World Health Organization (WHO); the full list of acceptable vaccines is available on this page.

If you have proof of vaccination, when you arrive at the show each day you can skip the test centre and head straight to the checkpoint. Don’t worry, there’ll be plenty of Money20/20 team members available to help you find the right place!

Once you’ve been through the checkpoint and picked up your wristband for that day, you can head straight to badge pick-up (if you don’t have your badge yet) or the main entrance (if you’ve already collected your badge). Enjoy the show!

Option 2: Negative Covid test result

Step 1: Pre-book your test slot for each day of the show (instructions below)

Step 2: When you arrive at the venue, head to the test centre for your appointment (and don't forget your photo ID!)

Step 3: Wait for your test results while chilling with a coffee in the waiting area

Step 4: Head to the checkpoint, where your negative test results will be checked and you will receive a wristband for the day

Step 5: Head to badge pick-up to collect your badge, or to the main entrance if you already have your badge

Step 6: Enjoy the show!

If you don’t have proof of vaccination, no problem. There are free-of-charge testing facilities on-site at the show, and your negative antigen test result can be used to pass through the checkpoint instead. Remember that in the Netherlands these test results are only valid for a maximum of 24 hours, so you’ll have to get a new test each day when you arrive at the venue.

It’s really important to pre-book your test for each day so the test centre can match your results to your name & contact info. When you’re choosing a time for your appointment, make sure you leave enough time for your test results to come through and to clear the checkpoint before your first content session or meeting of the day. You can book your test slot for each day at this government website. It’s very easy but it has been translated into English, so we’ve created this short step-by-step guide to help you through it in case anything is unclear.

You don’t have to use the test centre at the Rai - there are lots of other test centres in Amsterdam too and they’re all totally free of charge. If you’d prefer to book a slot at a test centre near your hotel, we’re happy to accept negative test results from other centres too (you can use the same link) - it’ll certainly be less busy than the test centre at the Rai!

If you need to take a test to get through the checkpoint, the first thing you’ll need to do when you arrive at the venue is head to the test centre for your appointment. This will be clearly signposted and there will be plenty of Money20/20 team members available to help you find the right place. Don't forget to bring your photo ID, so the test centre staff know it's you!

There’s a waiting area inside the test centre where you can wait for your results - they should take 15-25 mins to come through to you. Once you’ve received your negative test result, you can head to the checkpoint (again, this will be really clearly marked so it’s easy to find) and pick up your daily wristband.

Once you’ve been through the checkpoint and picked up your wristband for that day, you can head straight to badge pick-up (if you don’t have your badge yet) or the main entrance (if you’ve already collected your badge). Enjoy the show!
