electronica will take place in just eight weeks. Have you done everything you need to? Here are the five key things you must do before electronica:

Redeem guest tickets

It’s easy to redeem your voucher for a day ticket or buy a ticket using the ticket portal. If you register beforehand, you can simply walk through the turnstiles at electronica without having to wait in line. To discover the simplest way to do this, read electronica 2016: Online tickets are available now [secure tickets online] Don’t have a guest ticket yet? Ask one of your distributors or a manufacturer that you buy from if they are attending electronica and have a guest ticket for you.

Plan your arrival and departure

You’ve redeemed your ticket, but what’s the best way to get to Munich? You’ll also find information on this on our website. Lufthansa and Deutsche Bahn offer special deals for electronica. To enjoy the benefits of flying, book your flight via Lufthansa’s event website and enter the access code DEZZMKQ. This special rate applies for flights between November 1 and 18, 2016. With the exclusive trade fair rail special you can book tickets for the trip to and from Munich at a fixed price, regardless of where you’re traveling from. This rate applies for rail travel between November 6 and 13.


Have you already organized your travel and have your electronica ticket? Then all you need now is somewhere to stay. Would you prefer a hotel room or a private room in the city or outside Munich? Rooms are often difficult to come by when major trade fairs are taking place. We can help you find somewhere to stay during electronica: We have listed various providers on our website, such as Messe München Hotel Guide,, Munich Tourism Guest and Hotel Service, Airbnb Germany GmbH and CHECK-IN! Accommodation service for booking accommodation.

Matchmaking and using the electronica app

Now you’ve arranged everything for your stay. Important aids for ensuring that your day at the trade fair is effective are the Matchmaking function in the “my electronica” area of the website and the electronica app. By using these, you can establish contact with various exhibitors before the fair and plan your visit to electronica in detail. In the articles “Match me if you can – find suitable business contacts even before the trade fair” and „More information for when you are on the go: The electronica App” we explain in detail how to use the tools.

What can you do after the fair?

An exhausting day at the trade fair is over. You exit through the turnstile – and what next? The Messe München City Guide Munich app provides plenty of information about things to do in the city. It contains a current event calendar, a city guide with lots of hotel and restaurant tips and much more besides. You can even search for locations based on different criteria, such as distance from trade fair, price level, etc. It also contains special tips from the Cool Cities series.
