Free parking for journalists

In the course of numerous modernisation measures, Messe Essen installed new parking systems at the parking spaces around the exhibition grounds. Every car park and parking space is equipped with automated barrier and scanner systems. For accridited journalists, parking is still free.

Please follow the parking management system in situ. In addition, you will recognise any already completely occupied car parks by the red traffic light.

Please Note

The press ticket has to be shown when entering or exiting the parking spaces.

Online accreditation

When using our online accreditation, you will receive your digital press admission ticket as PDF. At the same time, the press ticket will be valid as a parking ticket for the official car parks of Messe Essen. You may print the press ticket or use it directly on your smartphone.

Accreditation on site

You may as well accredit on site in our Press Centre.

When driving into the car park, you must firstly pull a parking ticket out of the machine. This will be validated during the accreditation. On that day, please use the issued parking ticket when driving out of the car park.

On the next day, you can then use your press ticket in order to drive into the car parking areas free of charge.
