Admission  

You must be registered to attend iGB Live! and iGB Affiliate Amsterdam >>. 

Can I get into iGB Live! if I’m not fully vaccinated?

Absolutely. Testing is totally FREE onsite at the RAI – arrive onsite, take a test, and in 15 minutes you will be free to go into the events providing your test result is negative.

To help keep everyone safe, we will be asking everyone to present EITHER a EU Digital COVID Certificate, also known in the Netherlands as CoronaCheck, OR a paper version, OR use your country's official version of digital/paper proof of vaccination to gain access to iGB Live! and iGB Affiliate Amsterdam. This allows those fully vaccinated in the EU to produce a COVID certificate for their vaccination. Those who have not been fully vaccinated in the EU can also use CoronaCheck by having a test locally and having their negative result uploaded to the app.  

Will it be possible to register on-site?

It will not be possible to register on-site so we can ensure entry to the show is as quick as possible. Please ensure you are registered before you arrive at the RAI  Amsterdam!

Further information will be shared with you once you have registered.
