Press Registration Requirements

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

Applicants for press credentials must show employment by or assignment for a publication or program that is previously established, independent and regularly updated with original industry-related news. 

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

NAB Show New York only shares contact information with Exhibitors and Sponsors if a registrant opts-in to receive these communications during the registration process.

Review the News Media Agreement and Audio / Visual Policy for important information regarding photography, audio and video taken at the Show.

Why come to NAB Show New York?

"It’s a great convention to attend. They have the latest technology if you’re in the field of broadcast but they also have equipment for people in the film business. You could interact with representatives of the companies and offer workshops if you want to learn more."
