FAQ - Accreditation

How can I accredit myself as a journalist?

Accreditation can be obtained through our My Book Fair customer portal until Friday before the start of the fair, 5.00 pm. We will check and validate your credentials starting in the course of August. Please understand that this process might take a few days. 

Please note: Because of security measures in place due to COVID-19, five-day press tickets will not be available any longer. Journalists and bloggers wishing to enter the fair will require a new press ticket for each day. You can determine the days of your visit online and order your press tickets accordingly. 

Please also note that this year, there will be no press accreditation available on site

Are accredited journalists/bloggers allowed to bring along another person (such as a colleague) to the fair?

What should I take into consideration for the opening day (Tuesday)?

On Tuesday (opening day), you need a press ticket to enter the Press Centre. Please get accredited online. Waiting times, however, are still possible due to security checks and procedures. Please ensure that your plans for the day take this potential delay into consideration. 

Do press tickets provide access to all events?

No. E.g. the opening ceremony of Frankfurter Buchmesse and certain other events require special accreditation. You can find an overview of press events here: https://www.buchmesse.de/en/press/dates

Journalists arriving by car can park free of charge at the Rebstock parking area.
