The passes will be sent by courier until a few days before the fair. Otherwise you can pick up your exhibitor passes at the central cash desk.
Stand construction passes are available free of charge.
Note: If the invoice recipient fails to meet its payment obligations, the company registered with us still has a payment obligation!
Information on your free passes can be found in the Special Conditions of Participation (.pdf)
Due to the time required for delivery, from 3 weeks prior to the opening of the fair, passes will only be sent abroad via FedEx courier service (€10.00). Within Germany, passes are automatically sent by DHL courier (EUR 12.00) from 7 business days before the opening of the fair.
If you prefer courier shipment despite a longer lead time, you can indicate this on the order form.
Please note that additional passes cannot be reserved or deposited. However, you have the option of purchasing additional exhibitor passes onsite at the central box office against cash or by credit card. Purchase on account is possible starting at EUR 50.00 (within Germany) or EUR 100.00 (abroad). Please always bring your customer number and a business card with you to confirm your registration as an exhibitor.
During the trade fair (not during assembly and disassembly), exhibitor passes are also valid as 2nd class tickets for public transport within the extended Rhein Sieg Transport Authority (VRS) network. This does not apply to Deutsche Bahn AG trains subject to a surcharge such as IC/EC or ICE trains.
The ticket only entitles the holder to travel to and from Koelnmesse GmbH during the specified trade fair period. It is non-transferable and only valid in conjunction with a valid photo ID.
Further information on arrival and departure can be found in the Travel and accommodation section.
Stand construction passes cannot be used as transportation tickets.
