Many mails are arriving on our desk. Here are some answers to many of the recurring questions. The list will be continuously updated.


Where can I register as a helper?

We are very happy over the great interest shown in supporting the International Youth Convention 2019 as helpers. Advertising for helpers will most likely start in 2018. We will inform you in good time on our internet site www.iyc2019.org.

We would like to link the internet site www.iyc2019.org. Can we use the key image to do this?

You are welcome to link the internet site and to use the key image. You will shortly find further templates under “downloads“. The key image can also be used in the illustration of news and messaging. What is not permitted are changes or adjustments to the logo.

How can I make it possible for the youth who don't have the financial means to take part?

Some district Churches are planning projects to support the youth from other countries and continents, so that they can travel and thereby take part. Many youth groups were involved in undertaking such projects to raise funds before the European Youth Day: not only for others to travel, but also to assist with their own travel expenses. Congregation and district rectors would be good contacts when considering giving individual support.

Are there any plans for divine services or any other programme events to be broadcast in the internet?

Whether and when any items of the International Youth Convention 2019 will be broadcast has not yet been decided. After the 2017 divine service for Pentecost in Vienna Chief Apostle Schneider said that this was being considered. Further decisions and official information will be promulgated on the internet.

Will the entry ticket also be valid as a travel ticket on the local public transport?

An agreement has been made between the IJT 2019 Düsseldorf gGmbH and the Rheinbahn Düsseldorf to allow participants of the International Youth Convention (IYC) to travel free of charge to and from the IYC by bus and rail from 30th May until 2nd June. This so-called "Kombiticket" is valid for all four days of the event when travelling within the regional public transport network Rhein-Ruhr, VRR, (Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Ruhr) and is included in the participant's fee of 125 euros. Travel across other transport networks beyond the VRR network is not permitted with the Kombiticket.

Information about your arrival

Will there be sufficient charging points on the exhibition premises?

According to the current planning situation it will unfortunately not be possible for 30,000 participants to charge their smart phones. We therefore recommend that you bring a power bank of sufficient capacity with you. If you don't possess such a power bank you should take a look, in advance of the IYC, in the IYC shop. Power banks with a capacity of 20,000 mA are available for purchase there.

From when can I park my caravan on the exhibition centre?

Generally speaking, you can park your caravan or mobile home on the caravan park at the exhibition centre 365 days of the year. Therefore, you can arrive as early as you choose - naturally at your own cost.

The caravan park can be used without charge from Monday, 27th May 2019 (inclusive of electricity). The caravan park has a capacity of 800 parking spaces, with mains electricity points and further spaces without electricity.
