Press Registration & Credentials

Show Management welcomes the participation of all members of the professional media.  Editorial press and members of the media that plan to cover the show, the business of blogging, podcasting, and various forms of new media, will receive special consideration at the event.  However, due the nature of the new media industry and the primary topics covered by this event, many individuals who may be considered “press” or “editorial” at other shows or conferences will not be issued complimentary or editorial media badges.

Complimentary Editorial Media badges will only be issued to reporters who are directly covering the show in an editorial capacity for a recognized business or technology news source.  Topics must specifically relate to coverage of the show, Internet trends, blogging, podcasting, new media, social media networking or online marketing and communications trends.  Editorial topics in other industries (politics, sports, leisure, social, etc.) qualify the individual as a traditional show attendee, not as press.  Please register through the attendee registration page:

PR Firms, publishers, ad sales personnel, analysts and advertising agencies will not receive media badges.

Show management reserves the right to pre-qualify all Editorial Media registrants and only grant Editorial Media badges to those professionals meeting these editorial guidelines.  This process is at the sole discretion of show management.  Approved press will receive a complimentary Full Access media badge for October 15-16.  For more information on getting an editorial coverage pass for the Social Media Business Summit conference on October 14th, please contact BlogWorld & New Media Expo’s PR Firm, Burson-Marsteller, via email (Josh Wozman) or phone (202.530.4608).

Note: Editorial credentials will be issued to individuals who are covering industries of blogging, podcasting or new media.  Indirect relationships will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis for coverage and credential availability.  Advance registration is highly recommended.
