Virtual access to didacta

Welcome to the Lobby, your starting point for exploring the didacta digital trade fair portal

Whether you are attending the event in person or online, we will be with you every step of the way on your trade fair journey. Our digital features allow you to experience the industry event at any time – and from anywhere in the world.

The Lobby is your virtual access to didacta @home. After you log in, it serves as your starting point and your digital portal to all the areas of didacta. The Lobby has two roles: On the one hand, it is your navigation centre for exploring didacta digitally. On the other, it serves as a platform that gives you an overview of all the latest news. You can create your personal trade fair experience by navigating from the Lobby to the different virtual sections – all this is possible remotely:
