Can I register as press?

All applicants for press accreditation have to verify their media status each year. Only members of the media who are reporting on or from the show to the wider global audience may apply. Reporting internally to an industry organisation is not valid.

Bloggers are not eligible unless they can upload acceptable verification of their status.

Employees (engineers, managers, etc.) of television stations and similar organisations, makeup thousands of IBC’s visitors and are not eligible for press accreditation. They should apply for an exhibition visitor pass.

Photographers are not considered press unless they can prove that they are reporting on the show and verify who they are reporting for. Photographers who have been commissioned to take photographs of exhibitors’ stands are not eligible and should apply to the appropriate exhibitor(s) for a visitor ticket.

Is there a press list?

Access to the press list is restricted to exhibitors only in the Exhibitor Zone.
