Accredit yourself for BAU!

We are pleased that you want to participate at BAU! Please use the possibility of online accreditation.

Online and on-site accreditation

With the online accreditation, you will receive your free press ticket 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).

You will also have the option of arranging press accreditation once you get to the venue—just head to the Press Center West . Please have ready the documentation you will be using as proof that you are a journalist. The Press Center will even be open to you the day before the trade fair opens its doors.
