Press Access

Press credentials are only issued to represenatives of the media who cover the industry on a regular basis, by publishing articles or writing regular reports on the content and communications industry. Private consultants and freelancers who are paid by a third party company are not eligible for a media pass, and should request a pass through the sponsoring company. Show management reserves the right to qualify all registrants and to grant press credentials only to certain members of the media.

Media accreditation is reserved for working members of the press only. This includes editors, reporters, producers, camera crews, still photographers and industry analysts.

Note: Video production companies do not receive press badges unless they prove that they are reporting on the event for a specific news organization.
