FAQs - Exhibitor passes

Will the exhibitor passes be sent to me automatically?

No. The free exhibitor passes are automatically available for you to download or send by e-mail in the closed exhibitor area, short GAB. You can order additional passes conveniently in the closed exhibitor area. You can either print the badges or show them on your smartphone.

How do I order exhibitor passes?

We will send you access data to the closed exhibitor area (GAB) by e-mail. In the GAB you can download your free exhibitor passes or send them by e-mail. You can order additional exhibitor passes for your stand personnel and voucher codes for your customers in the same way as for the parking ticket shop in the GAB.

Simply select the desired number. After ordering, you can personalise your exhibitor passes, download them or send them to your colleagues. Repeat orders are possible at any time.

Depending on the size of your stand, a contingent of free exhibitor season passes is available to you as main exhibitor. The exact number will be displayed in the closed exhibitor area.

After the trade fair, you will be invoiced for the exhibitor passes that you have used to enter the fair and that exceed your free quota.

If you have not received or misplaced your access data, please contact our support team:

Where can I get the exhibitor passes?

You can print out your exhibitor passes directly, save them on your smartphone or send them to your colleagues by e-mail. On site, you can order and print out passes at the Help Desk in Foyer East or at the Service Center Mitte in Hall 6, provided you have access data.

What happens if my staff changes?

Only the badges that were used for access will be charged or deducted from your free quota. If your colleague does not gain access, his or her badge will expire. You can order replacements at any time from the GAB; during set-up at the Service Center Mitte, during the runtime both at the Service Center (Hall 6) and at the Help Desk in the Foyer East.

Your stand builders need separate set-up and dismantling passes, for which you can also order voucher codes at the closed exhibitor area to forward to your stand builder. Your stand constructor then registers independently in the Ticket Shop and exchanges his voucher code for a free set-up and dismantling pass.

What if I don't know the name of my staff yet?

You can personalise the exhibitor passes at any time once you know what your staff are called.

How do I get to the online shop?

The online shop is integrated into the closed exhibitor area. If you have not received or misplaced your access data, please contact our support team:

Can I cancel exhibitor passes free of charge?

Cancellation is not necessary, as you can simply let those passes expire that you do not need. You will only be charged for the badges you use to enter the fair.

Can I still change the exhibitor passes (on site) and if so, where?

You order a new exhibitor pass (on site at the Service Center in Hall 6/at the Help-Desk in the Foyer East).

Can I upload my stand personnel at once?

Under your order overview you will find an Excel template titled "Download current orders (XLS)". Here you can copy in your stand personnel. Then use the "XLS/CSV Import" button to upload your saved template. You can then send or download the tickets collectively or individually.

What do I have to pay?

Depending on the size of your stand, a contingent of free exhibitor season tickets is available to you as the main exhibitor. The exact number will be displayed in the GAB.

After the trade fair, you will be invoiced for the exhibitor passes that you have used to enter the fair and that exceed your free quota.

What do exhibitor passes cost?

The exhibitor season tickets for EMS 2022 cost € 35,00 excl. VAT (validity: trade fair duration and set-up/dismantling), day passes cost 12,60 € excl. VAT.

How many exhibitor passes are available to me free of charge?

The number of your free exhibitor season tickets is displayed in the online shop in the closed exhibitor area.

What happens if I lose my exhibitor pass?

If you have not yet entered the exhibition grounds with your pass, you can simply reprint it. If it has already been redeemed, we recommend that you have your exhibitor pass blocked in order to prevent misuse. In this case, please contact either our service team in the Service Center Mitte in Hall 6 or our hotline:

What happens if I forget my exhibitor pass?

Are exhibitor passes also valid as a free ticket for public transport?

No. The exhibitor pass only entitles the holder to enter the fair.

How do I get my free WiFi code?

You will find a free, individual WiFi code on every exhibitor pass.

Can I exchange my exhibitor badge for a badge on site?

What do I do with an unused exhibitor pass?

Are exhibitor passes transferable?

Exhibitor passes are not transferable. Please order additional passes via the online shop.

When are exhibitor passes valid?

Exhibitor season tickets are valid for the entire period of the event as well as set-up and dismantling.

Do I need exhibitor passes for the set-up?

For set-up and dismantling, you will need either an exhibitor season ticket or a free set-up/dismantling pass.

Your stand constructor will also need set-up/dismantling passes from now on. For this purpose, you order voucher codes in the closed exhibitor area, which can be exchanged for free set-up and dismantling passes by your stand constructor in the ticket shop.

Does my booth builder need exhibitor passes?

During set-up and dismantling, your stand constructor require separate set-up and dismantling passes. For this purpose, you order voucher codes in the closed exhibitor area, which can be exchanged for a free set-up and dismantling pass in the ticket store. If your stand constructor will be working at your booth during the run time, you will need to generate an exhibitor pass for them.

Can I also park with my exhibitor pass?

No, please use the parking ticket shop to order parking tickets. The parking ticket shop is also integrated into the closed exhibitor area.

I don't have a printer - what now?

You can also print out your exhibitor passes at the Service Center in Hall 6 or at the help desk in the Foyer East. To do this, you must log into the closed exhibitor area on site with your access data. Alternatively, you can save your exhibitor pass on your smartphone and show it at the entrance control.

Can I print the exhibitor passes several times?

Each exhibitor pass contains a QR code with an individual access code, which is scanned on admission and then blocked to prevent misuse. This means that you cannot enter the fair simultaneously with more than one person with one ticket printed several times.

Can I also order visitor vouchers for my stand personnel?

No. Exhibitor passes allow access to the hall one hour before the start of the trade show so that final work can be done on the stand or a team meeting can be held. With a visitor ticket, access is only granted at the start of the trade fair at 10 am.

FAQs - Set-up and dismantling passes

Does my booth builder need set-up and dismantling passes?

During set-up and dismantling, you or your stand constructor require separate set-up and dismantling passes. For this purpose, you order voucher codes in the closed exhibitor area, which can be exchanged for a free set-up and dismantling pass in the ticket store. If your stand constructor will be working at your booth during the run time, you will need to generate an exhibitor pass for them.

In this way, contact tracking is also carried out via registration in the ticket store, without exhibitors having to know the names of the individual stand builders.

Do I as an exhibitor need exhibitor passes for the set-up?

Your exhibitor season ticket is also valid during set-up and dismantling. Alternatively, you can also order free voucher codes in the closed exhibitor area, which can be exchanged for a free set-up and dismantling pass in the ticket store.

What is the cost of set-up and dismantling passes?

The voucher codes that exhibitors order, as well as the set-up and dismantling passes themselves, are free of charge.

The sale and transfer of these voucher codes to private individuals is prohibited.

I don't know the staff of my booth builder. What now?

As an exhibitor, you don't have to. You provide the trade fair construction company with any list of voucher codes. The company distributes the codes to its employees, who register independently in the ticket store.

FAQs - Invitation Codes

How can I invite my customers?

Your free online codes for inviting your customers are available in the closed exhibitor area. You can also order additional online codes in the closed exhibitor area.

The voucher codes can either be downloaded as an Excel file, sent directly to your customers by e-mail via the online shop or saved as a PDF and printed out. Your customers will then redeem the voucher codes in the Online Ticket Shop for an admission ticket. The voucher code alone is not sufficient to gain access to the trade fair. It must be exchanged online for an admission ticket. Unfortunately, this is not possible on site.

After the trade fair, you will be invoiced for the voucher codes which exceed your free contingent and were used to enter the trade fair.
