Register to Attend
To ensure quality press coverage and representation on the exhibit floor, media representatives need current, official credentials to qualify as press for HMG-managed tradeshows. To be eligible for press badges, media representatives must present required credentials from an approved media outlet, as outlined below. HMG reserves the right to refuse anyone a press badge, at any time and for any purpose.
Who qualifies for a press badge at HMG-managed tradeshows?
Who does NOT qualify for a press badge at HMG-managed tradeshows?
In order to qualify for an editorial or advertising press badge, media representatives must present current press identification. This includes a business card (with individual's name and title and the name of an approved media outlet) AND one of the following:
Freelance writers and photographers must present a letter of assignment from an approved publication to be granted a press badge. Freelance writers or columnists not on an assignment must provide a copy of an industry-relevant by-lined article, published within the past six months in an approved media outlet.
Electronic media representatives, including editors of websites, must present proof of an existing site with relevant editorial content and proof of circulation.
Public Relations representatives must register as "exhibitor personnel", if their clients are confirmed participants in the tradeshow. A business card and proof of client relationship with exhibiting manufacturer will be required. Alternatively, Public Relations representatives also may register on-site for the tradeshow as a "trade guest", with payment of any necessary fees.
We ask that you do not bring friends or relatives with you to the Press Center.
Please contact Megan Alexander, Marketing Manager, if you have questions about HMG's requirements, or if you wish to confirm that your credentials are acceptable in advance of a show.
