Here you will find information on individual arrival to the trade fair. For journalists special parking facilities are available on the exhibition grounds.
Parking 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.
Please understand that this measure is taken in the interest of the smoothest operations possible. We only want to make sure that the press parking spaces are kept available for you and not occupied by unauthorised visitors.

At glasstec 2018 you can complete accreditation in advance online as well as during the trade fair on site.
Accreditation points Press registration will take place at the press centre in the Messe Düsseldorf Administrative Tower and at all open entrances.
Please submit a valid and recognized press pass or credentials issued by your editor-in-chief. A voucher copy featuring your name in the Editor's Notes in conjunction with your personal ID card will also be accepted.
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.
