  • How To collect your badge

    Your Badge is your primary means of identification during the show. It provides access to all exhibition areas, conference sessions and networking events during opening hours. Carry it at all times, and be ready to show it at entry points and security points around the area.

    • By post: If you register before the end of September (full payment and photo provided), your badge will arrive by post 1 week prior to the show, allowing direct access to the event.
    • By E-ticket: An e-ticket will be sent to you via email approximately 1 week before the show. You can either print it out and save time by scanning the barcode at a badge delivery point in the Registration Area, or simply have it ready to scan on your mobile via the MAPIC mobile app. It is also available in the Online Database.
    • Registration Area: Collect your badge at the registration desk with your e-ticket (sent by email one week before the show) or a valid piece of ID.
    • If you have any questions, please contact our customer helpdesk.

    • IMPORTANT: This year we have important security measures. For safety reasons, please note that you will not be able to access any MAPIC events without your badge. Collect your badge in the registration area Palais 1 with your e-ticket.
