notice some changes when they prepare for their trip to photokina 2006, Sept.

forget about the previous hall number system. As a result of an altered fairground
all hall numbers have changed. Halls are no longer defined by consumer or professional
interest. The newly renovated and renumbered fairground has now the shape of
a shopping mall. Connected by one Main Corridor "Messeboulevard"

Don't worry, cut through the main corridor and you will be there in no
time. Traffic into the halls will be fed from four entrance points at the South,
