Good to know!


The codes offer you and your customers a number of advantages:

  • Your customers can redeem their codes directly at the IDS ticket shop at www.english.ids-cologne.de/redeem-voucher. The admission ticket is available for mobile devices. This saves time and enables your customers to enter the trade fair quickly.
  • Your customers can now redeem their admission ticket vouchers quite simply online and register for the trade fair at the same time.
  • This enables your customers to enter the fair without delay.
  • Your customer will receive a free ticket when redeeming the voucher online. The ticket is displayed together with the admission ticket in the ticket wallet of the IDS app. With the ticket, they can use buses and trains in the extended network of the Rhine Sieg Transport Authority (VRS) and Verkehrsverbund Rhine-Ruhr (VRR) Transport Associations. This does not apply to trains of Deutsche Bahn AG that are subject to surcharges, such as IC/EC or ICE.
  • Use these advantages for yourself and your customers! Send your admission ticket voucher codes to your important partners and customers in good time. And make them aware of this service.

Finally, a useful tip on the use of your admission ticket vouchers:

  • Before you send the admission ticket voucher codes to your customers, make a note of the serial numbers. We will send you a list of the voucher codes redeemed along with your invoice. This will make it easy for you to find out which customers have made use of your vouchers.

Important information how to redeem your ticket codes

Please note: Each person needs an own ticket shop account, because the ticket will always be automatically issued in the name of the account holder. It is not possible to redeem the voucher for another person.

  • Visit our Ticket shop: www.english.ids-cologne.de/redeem-voucher
  • Enter your voucher code in the input field and press "Next"
  • Register online in the Ticket Shop.
  • You will receive an order confirmation with further information regarding your ticket.

Codes may only be redeemed online!

Pricing system for ticket codes

You will be invoiced only for those ticket codes, which were exchanged for an admission ticket by your customers who attended the trade fair, regardless of how many ticket codes you have ordered in advance.

Used day tickets are charged at 10.00 Euro per piece incl. VAT.

Before you send the ticket codes to your customers, write down the serial number per addressee. On request, you will receive a list of redeemed ticket codes by e-mail after the event. This allows you to see which of your customers made use of your invitation.
