MEDIA/PRESS/ANALYST REGISTRATION

Media Registration for DesignCon 2015 is now closed. Onsite media registration is limited so please be prepared to show media identification and a recently published industry-related article for credentialing. Email with any questions.

Onsite Press Registration & Badge Pick Up will be located at Main Registration 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.


REQUIRED CREDENTIALS FOR PRESS & ANALYSTS

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:

TRADE/BUSINESS PUBLICATIONS; ONLINE/NEWS SERVICES

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.

INDUSTRY ANALYSTS

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.

ASSOCIATION PUBLICATIONS/NEWSLETTERS

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.

FREELANCE WRITERS & AUTHORS

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.
