How to collect your badge for MIPCOM 2017

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.

Then head for the Creative Europe MEDIA stand at P4.B1 in the Palais des Festivals, where you will receive the lanyard that ensures you have access to all the stand facilities.
