GIFA | 12 to 16 June 2023


Welcome to the final stages of preparing for your trade fair – in about six weeks’ time, you will be receiving guests at GIFA 2023. We are therefore sharing a few more tips and deadlines today that are important for your participation in the fair.

Please note that a late-order surcharge of 35% will be applied to orders for technical services received after 8 May 2023.

Please also bear in mind that, due to current world events and the resultant overall market situation, stand construction capacities are limited this year.
We therefore urgently request that you order this service promptly so that we can guarantee its provision. Here is an overview of our stand construction concepts.

See you in Düsseldorf soon – we look forward to meeting you there!

The Düsseldorf-Ticket of Messe Düsseldorf and Rheinbahn is valid in the entire city of Düsseldorf and on the day of your visit the ticket entitles the holder to travel to and from the trade fair and also to an unlimited number of journeys within the city area until 3:00 a.m. on the following day.

You can purchase as many personalized tickets as you wish, for example for your stand personnel or other colleagues. Available are day tickets or a season ticket valid during the trade fair.

Please note that the Düsseldorf Ticket is valid in the entire Düsseldorf city area (price level A3). For trips beyond the city limits, we recommend the eezy ticket, available in the Rheinbahn App, or the other Rheinbahn ticket offers.
