Why do I need to pay for a ticket?

How much is a visitor’s ticket and how do I buy tickets?

Ticket prices will vary per show. If you would like to book your ticket online please click on: www.tickets.messefrankfurt.com and you will be able to see ticket prices in euros. If alternatively you would prefer to buy a ticket through us here at the UK office you can do this by filling out a ticket registration form (on the home page of this website click on the relevant show logo for the form). For some shows, if you buy a season ticket through us at the UK office you will be entitled to pick up a free show guide (worth £25) when you get to the show.

Do you have any offers or suggestions on hotels?

We work with Hotel Info who are Germany’s largest online booking agency. The link: www.hotel.info/messefrankfurt will show you all the hotels in relation to how far they are from the exhibition grounds and will entitle you to save up to 30% on the publicly bookable rates.

  • exhibitor- and product search
  • event schedule
  • news
  • interactive hall plan

Once you have arrived at the train station, you can continue to the Messe Frankfurt grounds on foot or reach us by using public transportation. Take the S3, S4, S5 or S6 to Frankfurt (M) Messe.

Shuttle Bus - This usually runs from outside the airport, there is a Messe Frankfurt Information Desk within the airport where you will be able to find out more.

How big is the fair ground?

Messe Frankfurt’s exhibition grounds are around 578,000 square metres and are currently home to ten exhibition halls and an adjacent Congress Centre. To put this into perspective, that’s the equivalent of 82 football pitches so make sure you wear comfortable shoes!

The closest airport is Frankfurt am Main International Airport which is around 20 minutes drive to the exhibition centre.
