Apply for press credentials online
You can obtain your press credentials in advance again at LIGNA. Use our eTicket service for journalists to apply for your press pass online. The advantages are clear:
- You’ll receive your personalized eTicket for journalists by e-mail.
- You can use your eTicket as a single admission ticket for the exhibition grounds.
- During your first day at the event, you can trade in your eTicket for a full-event press pass onsite, either at the Press Center , the annex to Hall 17/West or Administration Building 1.
- There you can also request a catalog coupon and a parking entrance and exit pass.
Please note that your press pass / e-Ticket is not also valid for local public transport.
Journalists who were unable to apply for press credentials in advance of LIGNA 2019 can do this during the event at the Press Center (adjacent to Hall17/West) or the Press counter at the Administration Building 1 (Entrance North). It is possible that this late accreditation may incur a slight waiting period.
If you use a different entrance, you will first need to purchase an admission ticket. You can then proceed to the Press Center to receive your press credentials and receive a refund of the admission price. Please be sure to bring proof of your journalistic status (e.g. a copy of your publication which lists you in the masthead as a journalist or editor and/or a valid press ID recognized by Deutsche Messe).
A broad range of accommodation options – from hotel rooms to B&Bs to private apartments – can be booked here:
Please note: Each journalist is responsible for his or her own travel and accommodation expenses; these expenses will not be reimbursed by Deutsche Messe AG.
