FAQ Tickets and registration

Registration/Placing orders

  • You can go directly into the fair without waiting.
  • You receive a discount when you purchase a ticket online.
  • You can view your orders at any time and, if necessary, print out your online ticket again (e.g. if the first printout is illegible).
  • You can print out an invoice/receipt.
  • If you make a mistake entering your personal data, you can change it.

Print@home-Tickets are personalized and registration is necessary to ensure comprehensive service and security standards when ordering and using online tickets.

We do our best to organize the fair and continue developing it to meet your needs and interests. Answering the registration questions helps us to keep the fair even more oriented to your needs.

Your ticket will only be sent to the e-mail address that you provide during registration.

  • An up-to-date Internet browser
  • A valid e-mail address so that we can send you the ticket
  • An Adobe PDF Reader to display the online ticket
  • A valid credit card (VISA, MasterCard, American Express) to pay for your ticket or a printed or online voucher number to redeem your voucher
  • Your online ticket is only valid together with an official photo ID.

If asked, you must present your official photo ID to admission personnel.

No, due to data protection guidelines, everyone must purchase their own ticket or redeem their own voucher themself.

Yes, but the number of vouchers that each person can redeem is limited to the number of days of the fair.

If you have received a voucher, the ticket is free of charge to you because the exhibitor who invited you to the fair is paying for it. Because the exhibitor is only charged for the ticket when you pass through the turnstiles to attend the fair, there is no need to cancel or inform our ticket service if you do not use the ticket.

Each person needs to register separately to order a ticket.

If multiple vouchers for 1-day tickets are used to order tickets to attend the fair on more than one day, the name of the person placing the order will appear on all the tickets.

If various people want to use vouchers for 1-day tickets, each person must register separately.

Important: Because Print@home-Tickets are only valid for a specific individual and are not transferrable, you may be required to present an official photo ID at the fair.

If you accidently use the same name for multiple tickets, please contact us by e-mail: registrierung@messe-muenchen.de

Once you have finished ordering your ticket online, you can download and save it in PDF format. In addition, a Print@home-Ticket will be sent to the e-mail address that you provided. Please keep an eye out for an e-mail sent by: ticketing@messe-muenchen.de

In exceptional cases, e.g. if the server is busy, it may take up to 24 hours to send your ticket.

You can print out your PDF Print@home-Ticket with the Adobe Reader or click on the link in the e-mail to print out your ticket.

Once you have placed your order, you can download and save your Print@home-Ticket in PDF format. In addition, your Print@home-Ticket will be sent to you by e-mail. You should receive that e-mail right away, but in some cases it may take up to 24 hours after you place your order.

In rare cases, e-mails may end up in your e-mail account's spam filter. Please check your spam folder or contact your administrator.

It is also possible that you made a mistake when you entered the e-mail address in your customer profile. Please contact our Visitor Hotline at the following telephone number +49 89 949-11458 or by e-mail to info@electronica.com

Yes, you need a printout of your Print@home-Ticket to attend the fair because the readers at the turnstiles can only read clearly legible barcodes on printed Print@home Tickets. For each order, you will receive an e-mail with a Print@home-Ticket in PDF format as well as a ticket link.

Use a black-and-white printer and standard-size paper.

If you cannot or do not want to print out your Print@home-Ticket right away, you may also do so later.

If you do not have a printer, you can forward the Print@home-Ticket PDF to someone whom you trust and have them print out the ticket for you.

Yes, the readers at the turnstiles will recognize the barcode displayed on your ticket.

If you have a valid ticket, you may attend the fair on the day or days of your choice. Multiple-day tickets do not have to be used on consecutive days.

If (in exceptional cases) your ticket is only valid on a specific day(s), the day(s) on which the ticket is valid will be printed explicitly on the ticket.

If you receive a message with this system-generated text, your order was not processed. However an earlier or a later order may still have been successful. The process may have been interrupted for one of the following reasons:

  • Timeout: After a standby period of 30 minutes, the ticket system interrupts the ordering process for security reasons.
  • At the end of the ordering process, you did not click on “Order now,” which completes the order.
  • You used the Back/Forward button in the browser during the ordering process, which resulted in complications. To move to the previous or the next page, please only use the Back or Forward button on the order form.

YES, the ticket order is binding.

If the customer is a consumer as defined by Section 13 of the German Civil Code (BGB), the customer may cancel the transaction in text form (e.g. letter, fax, e-mail) without providing a reason within 2 weeks.

Cancellation within the cancellation deadline is only possible until the point in time that the ticket loses its validity.

NO, tickets with personal particulars (e.g. your name) are not generally transferrable.

Multiple-day tickets may also only be used by one person.

Important: Because online tickets are only valid for a specific individual and are not transferrable, you may be required to present an official photo ID at the fair. Every validated barcode is recognized as such by the electronic access control system, and ticket-holders who try to use a copied online ticket will be denied access.

If you loose your ticket and are afraid that whoever finds it might use it to attend the fair, please contact us by e-mail at registrierung@messe-munechen.de so that we can block your lost ticket.
