Long shot filter: short of getting a new job in the publishing industry or as a journalist, how can I get into the Frankfurt Book Fair on "trade visitor" days?

I'm conducting research that has to do with the German publishing industry, so I'd like to attend the entire book fair - including the days it's not open to the general public. However, I am not a journalist and do not work in the publishing industry, so I don't seem to qualify as a "trade visitor." Do you have experience with this event? How serious are they about these restrictions? Would my academic credentials get me in (maybe if I explain my research to the right person)? Or is this hopeless?
