Accreditation & Press center

We would like to thank you for your interest in LOPEC and we look forward to seeing you at the trade fair and reading, seeing, or listening to your reports! It is best if you arrange your press accreditation directly online.

Online and on-site accreditation

With the online accreditation, you will receive your free press ticket by e-mail before the start of the trade fair. Please have ready the documentation you will be using as proof that you are a journalist (PDF or JPG, max. 1 MB).

Accreditation on-site

During LOPEC you can also obtain accreditation on-site at our Press Counter. You can reach the Press Counter via the passage from the West Entrance to Hall B0 and on to the ICM - Internationales Congress Center München.

Proof of your journalistic activity

You will need to provide evidence that you are a journalist when applying for accreditation online (by uploading) or at the venue (by showing a hard copy). Please also refer to the Messe München accreditation guidelines.

The following may be used as evidence:

  • A valid official press badge that must not have expired
  • An imprint from the past six months that proves your editorial contribution
  • An article from the past six months with your name in the byline
  • Picture credits for photographers

Parking and press tickets

  • Press parking: Accredited journalists may park free of charge in the parking garage in the west of the site, the 'Parkhaus West'. Parking garage tickets can be exchanged for free exit tickets at the Press Center. In case you want to arrange your accreditation on site, please show your evidence referred to our accreditation guidelines.
  • Your press ticket does not entitle you to free use of the Munich public transport network (MVV).

Your visit to the fair begins at the Press Lounge—the first place that journalists from around the world go. Everything that you need for your work is available there. Our team would be pleased to support you!
