Welcome to the DesignCon Media Center! Here you will find information on Press Registration and the PR/Media services available to both Media & Exhibitors.
DesignCon has created a new space for media and exhibitors to meet—right on the show floor!
This area will include tables to hold one on one meetings, conduct interviews or just relax.
There will be comfortable seating and displays with the very latest news, announcements and social media feeds, all in one convenient location. This area may only be used by registered exhibitors and their representatives, press and analysts.
DesignCon will also offer a quiet room for journalists on deadline. You will receive room number information on this location with your badge at check in.
|Wednesday, January 29||12:45pm - 6:00pm|
|Thursday, January 30||12:30pm - 6:00pm|
Media Registration for DesignCon is now open. If you are interested in registering for a complimentary Media Pass, please review the required credentials below and be prepared to show media identification and a recently published industry-related article onsite.
Onsite Press Registration & Badge Pick Up will be located in the Media Center and will be open during the hours listed above.
IMPORTANT: Please review the required credentials below and be prepared to show media identification and a recently published industry-related article on-site.
To qualify for a complimentary Media Pass, the applicant must cover the industry on a regular basis by writing regular reports or publishing relevant articles on the industry that are not solicited by an exhibiting company and are not confidential. Private consultants who are paid by an individual company are not eligible for a media pass, and should request a pass from the sponsoring company.
We may request proof of credentials before we approve your DesignCon Media Pass.
Additional information on requirements for press and analysts is as follows.
Reporters from industry trade publications, newspapers and wire services must provide a sample of an article published within the past six months that clearly displays authorship.
Writers from internationally recognized market research or financial institutions who consistently write for regularly published newsletters and/or reports must provide a sample of an industry-related report published within the past six months that clearly displays authorship.
Reporters from internationally recognized magazines, newspapers or newsletters produced by industry associations must provide an article published within the past six months. Newsletter reporters must have a registered subscriber base of at least 500.
Persons requesting freelance credentials must provide an article published within the past six months. Those who freelance occasionally and are employed by non-news organizations are not eligible for media credentials. We reserve the right to refuse media badges, without cause, during pre-registration as well as onsite media registration. Please be advised that, due to high demand, media badges are limited in number.

All DesignCon exhibitors will have the opportunity to submit their press kits and press releases through the Virtual Press Office! Not only does this improve your company's carbon footprint, it extends your message to a global audience and ensures your press materials get maximum exposure before, during and after the show.
