Talking people up goes with the job

And to ensure that everyone hears you, you should make sure your information reaches its intended targets. The press guide is an important instrument for journalists. It lists information such as

• your press contact partner at the stand
• dates of your press conferences, press discussions and meetings
• interesting and attractive stand activities and promotions for print & photo editorial offices

Do not miss the opportunity to provide us with this data. It will cost you nothing and achieve a lot.

We will also publish your press dates at > Press Service


Bait the hook!

Of course you can't be everywhere at once, but your information can. With the press-pigeon-holes you can reach even the journalists you haven't met yet. The journalists come to the Press Center daily to gather information from the material left for them there in the press-pigeon-holes. Bring your hot news to the Press Centre and soon you'll have the journalist you need on the hook.


Cast your line in the right waters!

To support your specific and targeted media address, we are providing you with a trade press list as Excel file containing the world’s most important trade magazines and journals in your sector. The list is a selection of titles from the Messe Düsseldorf press mailing list.
