Please keep in mind that we will not be able to process any more requests for advance accreditation as from 27th June 2019. You can of course also receive accreditation after the pre-accreditation period has expired at our accreditation counters on site. Please see opening hours for onsite accreditation here .
Please have your valid press card and/or editorial assignment ready. Unfortunately representatives of online media/podcast sites as well as members of the Youth Press cannot get accredited on site.
Due to the regulations regarding the protection of minors, we request that all media representatives wear a wristband corresponding to their age category (according to USK regulation). The wristbands will be available at the entrance to the trade fair.
