    MIPCOM Floorplan Floor plan

    Your Badge is your primary means of identification during the show. It provides access to all exhibition areas, conference sessions and networking events during opening hours. Carry it at all times, and be ready to show it at entry points and security points around the area.

    By post: If you registered well in advance, paid in full and provided a photo, your badge will arrive by post one week prior to the show, providing you with direct access to the event.

    E-tickets: An e-ticket will be sent to you via email approximately 4 weeks before the show. You can either print it out and save time by scanning the barcode at a badge delivery point in the Registration Area or simply have it ready to scan on your mobile via the MIPCOM mobile app. It is also available in the Online Database.

    On site: Collect your badge at the registration desk with your e-ticket (sent by email one week before the show) or a valid ID. Download the floorplan.
    If you have any questions, please contact our customer helpdesk on +33 (0) 1 79 71 99 99
