We recommend that you use local public transportation for your trip to dmexco. If you arrive by taxi or car, please plan sufficient time for your journey. Traffic is very heavy on trade fair days. By providing three entrance points, we are trying to reduce the crowding at the check-in terminals. However, we suggest that you plan enough time for the check in any case. Our advice: The entrances and the catering areas at the entrances and in the boulevard will already be open starting at 7:30 a.m.

You will find cloakrooms where you can leave your jackets and bags at every Entrance.

During dmexco, the city is full of visitors. Most of the hotels will be fully booked, so please plan your trip to dmexco well ahead of time. The team at Koelnmesse will be happy to help you book a hotel room.

If you’re hungry, we’ll be glad to help you! There are many catering areas on the exhibition grounds, including the dmexco Café at the Entrance North, the dmexco Diner, the dmexco Pub on the Boulevard and the large Food Court in hall 5.2. Unfortunately, it won’t be possible to reserve a table.

The official dmexco party, which will be held at the end of the first day of the trade fair, will offer participants the opportunity to really celebrate. In an outstanding venue.

In 2017 we celebrated at the Wolkenburg in the city center of Cologne. There was a great party atmosphere spreading out over two floors within the ancient walls of this former monastery, with outdoor bars in the inner courtyards and a dance floor with live music and a DJ. Food and Drinks were included. Here you were able to form networks with our guests from all over the world. Chill out, relax, and have fun!
