Here you have the opportunity to apply for accreditation online online around the clock up to two weeks before the beginning of the event.
You will receive your press ticket with the parking permit for the press parking spots as pdf for printing. Only press tickets printed in high quality can be read by the scanners at the entrance. Please cut out your press ticket. Catalogues and lanyards will be provided at the assigned accreditation counters or in the Press Centre North (Congress Centre North).
The press ticket has the imprint of the official fair date (3-7 October 2018), but of course it's also valid on 02.10.2018 - the press day!
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.
