Admission Vouchers

Entrance trade fair
If you’d like to encourage customers and other interested parties to come to a decision, we suggest that you use our voucher codes and invite them to visit you at your trade fair stand. Wondering how it works? It’s very simple actually. You send them a digital voucher, and the recipient then picks up their e-ticket online, using the code.

PLEASE NOTE and inform your customers about the following changes:

• Admission vouchers can only be redeemed in the METAV online ticket shop. An on-site redemption will not be possible.

• Redeemed admission vouchers are 1-day tickets for a specific date and thus only valid on the day booked by the customer.

Important: Don't forget your bus and train ticket.

Free travel to and from events at the Düsseldorf venue by local public transport, which was previously included in admission tickets, will no longer be possible from January 2022, a ticket must be purchased.  For information and tickets, please visit www.rheinbahn.de.

Do you need tickets that can be purchased in advance on account, also in larger quantities (dispatch by postal service)? Please contact the Rheinbahn sales team: rvt@rheinbahn.de

For Free on our Social Media Channels: Present your Company with a Short Video

The METAV will again be accompanied by a major social media campaign in 2022. The aim is not only to create awareness for the trade fair, but also to put you as an exhibitor in the spotlight. During the METAV highlight weeks, in which we will place METAV prominently on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook, we will focus fully on dialogue and an exchange of ideas. Use the hashtag #METAV2022 and link to our METAV account so that we can support you with likes and retweets.

For the first time, we offer you to participate in a social media campaign with a video. In a maximum length of 59 seconds, you can present your company or your exhibition focus, for example, and thus arouse the appetite for a visit to your stand. In this way, we are positioning the METAV together as a home of precise technical information and exchange at eye level. All videos that reach us in good time in the appropriate format will be posted free of charge on our social media channels with a link to your exhibitor profile on the METAV website from 10 February. This way, visitors can learn about your company directly and schedule a visit to your booth.

Participation is simple:

1. Send a video of up to 59 seconds in length (format: .MP4) to s.schwaneck@vdw.de by February 01, 2022. To send large files, please use wetransfer.com or a comparable service.

2. For this purpose, please note the names of your company accounts on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook so that we can tag you in our post.

3. On LinkedIn, we can additionally link private accounts, such as those of members of your sales team or management, to enable personal contact in advance. If you would like to use this option, please also send us a link to the LinkedIn profiles of your experts.

The publication of the videos follows the first come, first served principle.
We look forward to your participation in our campaign. If you have any questions, Dr. Stefan Schwaneck, your contact at the VDW, will be happy to help (s.schwaneck@vdw.de).

Fraud Alert!

Fake stamp
We are currently seeing an increasing number of fake invoices being sent out to exhibitors. These invoices aim to give the impression of being connected with your trade fair participation and use the logos and trademarks of Messe Düsseldorf and/or its partners for this purpose.

Please only pay invoices that you can clearly attribute to an order you have placed with Messe Düsseldorf or our partners (customer number) and compare bank details with the accounts of Messe Düsseldorf (www.messe-duesseldorf.de).
Please note:
All invoices issued by Messe Düsseldorf are deposited in your OOS account.

In your OOS account you have the possibility to check the correctness of the invoices at any time.
