Information on arrival

Are there sufficient charging points on the Messe premises?

According to latest information, it will not be possible for 30,000 participants to charge their smartphones. We therefore recommend that you bring a sufficiently capable power bank with you. If you do not own one, you should take a look before you come to the IYC in the IYC Shop. Power banks are on sale there with a capacity of 20,000 mAh.

From when can I park my caravan on the Messe caravan park?

Generally speaking, you can park your caravan on the Messe caravan park 365 days per year. You can therefore arrive as early as you wish - at your own cost of course.

The caravan park may be used free of charge (including mains electricity) from Monday, 27th May 2019. The park has space for 800 caravans, with electricity, and some without electricity.
