General accreditation guidelines for journalists and bloggers at exhibitions in Germany
As an exhibition organiser we want to make it easier for journalists and bloggers to access information about our events and our company by offering accreditation. Accreditation is awarded exclusively for the purposes of journalistic reporting.
Accreditation guidelines for journalists
Persons from Germany or abroad who can provide the following proof of journalistic (including photojournalistic) employment (related to the topic of the exhibition in question) are entitled to media accreditation:
- By presenting by-line articles published no earlier than six months before the time of the event
- By presenting a legal notice in which they are named as editors, permanent editorial staff or authors, and which is no older than three months at the time of the event
- By presenting a written commission from a complete editorial office, in the original, relating to the current exhibition
- By means of a weblink to an online publication that is well established in the industry community in question and that can prove an adequate reach. In these cases, advance accreditation is necessary due to the extra verification effort. Online media of this type must have been in existence for at least three months, must produce regular entries and the most recent article relating to the topic of the exhibition must be no older than three months. (In individual cases, separate, more detailed accreditation rules may be specified for bloggers, with a separate status for bloggers.)
- Holders of a valid press card from a German or foreign journalists’ association
We point out that presenting a press card is generally not, in itself, sufficient grounds for accreditation. The exhibition organiser reserves the right to request further proof of journalistic employment as specified in items 1 to 5.
Credentials should be presented in German or English. The exhibition organiser reserves the right in individual cases to also demand presentation of a valid photo ID. There is no automatic right to accreditation. If necessary, the exhibition organiser shall exercise its domiciliary rights.
The following groups of persons shall not be accredited:

Filming and photography for journalists, bloggers and influencers/media representatives
On receipt of the accreditation the ticket holder agrees that any film and photos produced are exclusively for the purposes of editorial coverage.
These activities are permissible only during the daily opening times of events. All other commercial shots that are not produced for the purposes of general editorial coverage require the separate consent of NürnbergMesse.
The parties agree that by giving permission to take photographs and videos, NürnbergMesse GmbH does not assume any liability whatsoever, and that the person taking the photographs and videos shall relieve NürnbergMesse GmbH from all third party claims in this conjunction.
The person taking the photos/films is liable for all loss and damage that occurs in conjunction with the photography and filming. Before granting access to the interior of the exhibition centre, NürnbergMesse is entitled to ask the person taking the photos or videos for current written proof of the existence of liability insurance issued by the insurer of the film crew.
