Media Access to Cnxtd Events

Recognized media representatives are invited to attend and cover most Cnxtd Event Media conferences. At these events, members of the media will have direct access to speakers, panelists and event attendees. In most cases, interviews can be requested and/or conducted on-site; Cnxtd Event Media staff can also assist with scheduling interviews either pre- or post-event. Please use event handles when tweeting about this event.

To receive press credentials, we require verification of the editorial press corps, photographers and broadcast crew. Media passes are typically issued only to full-time representatives of:

  • daily and weekly newspapers and periodicals with a general circulation. 
  • recognized national or international news services. 
  • radio or television stations which maintain regular news departments. 
  • Freelance writers, photographers, contributing editors, or videographers must verify they have been retained to cover the subject event by presenting a letter from a recognized news organization or a publication. A letter from a publisher/editor or broadcast producer on official stationery or from an official e-mail account will be sufficient.

Media passes will be given to reporters, writers, editors, publishers, photographers, or videographers from print, broadcast, and online outlets who meet these qualifications.

Account representatives, sales executives, book authors, and engineers are not eligible for media passes. 

Members of the media requesting attendance should follow the normal registration procedures using the comp coupon code provided. Registration is non-transferable. You will receive an email confirmation of your credential qualification.

Media access is extended as a professional courtesy; media privileges may be revoked at any time. In order to be eligible for media access at a future event, a copy of all articles, photos and/or productions that are published, aired or posted regarding the event you attended shall be forwarded to the Cnxtd Event Media Relations contact identified.

Material prepared or provided by Cnxtd Event Media may not be commercially sold or bartered without the expressed, written permission of Cnxtd Event Media.

Cnxtd Event Media is not responsible for the safety or security of any equipment or property damaged, destroyed or lost by a member of the media while attending an event.
