The Preaccreditation is closed. Please keep in mind that we will not be able to process any more requests for advance accreditation from 27 September 2016. You can of course also receive accreditation after the pre-accreditation period has expired – starting on 3 October 2016, in the Press Centre North (Congress Centre North).
On 9 October 2016, the final day of the trade fair, press cards will not be issued after 3:00 p.m.
The accreditation of journalists for the coverage of Koelnmesse events is subject to the following general accreditation guidelines for trade fairs in Germany. We therefore request that representatives of the media comply with these guidelines and ensure that they apply for accreditation well in advance of the event in question. Accreditation is granted solely for the purpose of media reporting.
