Parking on the trade fair grounds
If you travel by car, please use the multi-storey car park "P4" on Stockumer Kirchstrasse next to the administration towers. If you visit the trade fair for the first time, please take a parking ticket. When you leave, please show your press pass issued by us. You will then receive your ticket to exit free of charge.
During the following days the press pass also acts as permit for the car park and entitles you to a ticket to exit. The staff attending the press car park is instructed to only accept the aforementioned credentials.
