  • Invitations to select By Invitation Only night events (Pre-RSVP required!)
  • Access to the daily Interview Lounge

  • Preferred hotel rates and packages at the Hotel Monteleone
  • Preferred access to presenters and attendees you would like to interview and our assistance in contacting them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible to apply?

  • All working media are eligible. It is recommended that you have a confirmed assignment.

Can I fill out one application for my whole team?

  • Unfortunately, no. Each member of your team will need to fill our their own application to answer all necessary questions.

Do you really check my work examples and references?

  • Yes! As much as we would like to take all applicants, we have a limited number of credentials available. The review is greatly weighted on the content and thoroughness of the application.

Does it matter when I submit the application?

  • While the applications are rolling, we recommend getting in your application as soon as you have an assignment. You can certainly wait until the deadline, but there will be a smaller pool of credentials available.
