Security checks - No backpacks - Early arrival

In order to prevent waits, we ask all guests to please refrain from bringing large bags or backpacks, if possible.
You should nevertheless be prepared to wait in long queues. We’d recommend you arrive at the Exhibition Centre early. Security checks will start at 7:00 am.
