You can also use your press pass to get credentialed onsite, but be prepared for a lengthy wait.
Press Center in the administration building (from 11th November, 2018)
All open entrances: North, South, East (from 12th November, 2018)
Your press pass will be accepted at all accreditation points. Also, there you will be able to pick up pouches and lanyards for your credentials, as well as a trade fair catalogue.
We regret that all non-journalist staff, such as marketing or advertising personnel, are not entitled to a Press card. We should also like to point out in this connection that inclusion in the Messe Düsseldorf press mailing list does not mean automatic entitlement to a Press card.
We are always happy to welcome bloggers, and support them in their search for information, contacts and obtaining a press card. Requirements for accreditation are:
A thematic connection to MEDICA.
The blog is established, i.e. it has existed for at least six months from the start of the trade fair start, and has a significant amount of traffic (page views).
Relevant blog entries are published regularly (at least one entry per week).
As blog author, you regularly and verifiably write relevant blog entries on key MEDICA topics that are published in established blogs.
A link and pertinent verifications must be uploaded during the accreditation process. We reserve the right to limit the number of accredited persons per medium (depending on hit rates, size, etc.). Accreditation must be completed online before the trade fair begins.
During the trade fairs you will be able to park free of charge in the car park P4 on Stockumer Kirchstraße next to the administration building. No separate parking voucher is necessary. Please understand that we cannot guarantee the availability of sufficient parking spaces.
