Important information

The technical facilities and services available at the Press Center, particularly PCs, fax machines and the like, are provided exclusively for the purposes of reporting on the event for which journalists have accreditation.

Our Communications & PR business unit reserves the right to demand documentary evidence of this reporting. In the event of abuse, a journalist may be barred from using the services provided by the Press Center.

Koelnmesse also reserves the right to:

  • withdraw accreditation for the event from the journalist in question in individual cases.
  • demand verification of bona fide journalistic activity in the form of an attestation from the editorial office in question or bylined articles etc. in individual cases. If such documentation is not produced or does not conform to the accreditation guidelines, Koelnmesse may refuse to grant accreditation. There is no automatic entitlement to accreditation.
  • enforce its domestic authority in all matters of accreditation.
