Questions & Answers
for visitors of the IAW trade fair
Everything you need to know about your IAW ticket
Is it possible to visit the IAW as a private person?

Unfortunately, private (non-trade) visitors will not be admitted as the IAW is dedicated exclusively to professional (commercial) visitors. These visitors must also hold a trading license or similar accreditation.

How can I register several visitors and order additional admission tickets?

Each individual person requires a new separate registration. In each case a personal e-mail address and personal password must be used for this purpose. If all the persons registered are employed by the same company, the company data entered can be the same.

I am already registered and have an admission ticket but would like to bring someone with me. How can I obtain an admission ticket for the person accompanying me?

An accompanying person requires a new separate registration. In each case a personal e-mail address and personal password must be used for the purpose. If the accompanying person is an employee or otherwise engaged by the same company, the company data entered can be the same.

Can I register several persons using one e-mail address?

Every individual must be registered using his/her own e-mail address. Using an e-mail address several times for this purpose is not permitted.
