An overview of all information journalists need in order to participate in the trade fair. We look forward to seeing you at the trade fair and reading, seeing, or listening to your reports! It is best if you arrange your press accreditation directly online.

Accreditation bauma 2025

Accreditation for bauma 2025 will be available here from autumn / winter 2024 onwards.

Online 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). In case your file is bigger than 1 MB, please send it to and use the subject accredition bauma 2022.

Once your information has been verified, you will receive your Print@home ticket by e-mail. You will then need to print out your ticket and bring it with you to the trade fair. Your Print@home ticket will give you free access for the entire duration of the event.

On-site accreditation

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.

Important information on your accreditation

You will need to provide evidence that you are a journalist when applying for accreditation online (by uploading) or at the venue (by showing a hard copy). Please also refer to the Messe München accreditation guidelines.
