As always, our main priority is the safety and security of those who attend VidCon.

The following measures are in place to help ensure everyone at VidCon has the best possible time while staying safe.

All VidCon attendees are required to wear their badges and wristbands at all times. This is to verify that everyone who is there — or within a particular, access-controlled area — is allowed to be there. You will not be permitted into any VidCon event space without your badge and wristband.

We have a security team stationed at all areas of the event including inside the ExCel London, backstage, and at entrance and exit points around the Convention Center.

VidCon reserves the right to conduct random bag searches upon entry or during the event.
