Your press accreditation 2018

If you have registered already you simply log in to your My Book Fair profile and upload a current proof of your journalistic activities for 2018. If you have not registered, go to My Book Fair and choose "Register now". 

Your registration is complete – but you are not accredited yet! We will check and validate your credentials starting in July 2018. If your credentials meet our criteria, you will receive your confirmation via e-mail. You can then find your press ticket in your profile.

Advance online accreditation is possible from July until 8 October 2018, 5 pm. Starting on 9 October 2018, you can only get an accreditation at one of the press counters at the Book Fair. Please have a proof of your journalistic activities with you.
