Entrance passes are available online at www.drupa.com.

Before you know it, drupa, held May 3-16 in Düsseldorf, Germany, will be happening. To make it easier for attendees, entrance passes for drupa 2012 are now available online at www.drupa.com. This represents the first time that passes have been offered as eTickets. Attendees can purchase their ticket online, print it out, and travel to the trade fair by bus and train free of charge. In addition, the eTickets are less expensive than tickets purchased on site: a one-day ticket costs $51 (€40) online as compared to $83 (€65) at the fairgrounds, and the four-day ticket costs $165 (€129) online but $282 (€220) when purchased at the show.

The opening hours of drupa 2012 are from 10:00 am to 6:00 p.m. on weekdays and from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on weekends. All drupa tickets allow free round trip transportation on busses, subways and trains (2nd class, supplement-free trains only) to and from the trade fair within the Regional Transport Networks Rhine-Ruhr (VRR) of Düsseldorf and Rhine-Sieg (VRS), which includes the neighboring cities of Wuppertal, Krefeld, Dortmund, Bonn and Cologne.

Together with the Deutsche Bahn (German Railway) and Düsseldorf Marketing & Tourismus (DMT), Messe Düsseldorf developed an attractive offer: drupa visitors can travel from all German cities to Düsseldorf and back at discounted prices. On the DMT Website, http://business.duesseldorf-tourismus.de/en/fair/drupa, attendees will find hotel offers in a variety of categories or accommodation options in private homes.
