Media Center

Welcome to the Interop Las Vegas Media Center. Here you will find helpful information to guide you through the press registration process as well as other media resources.

Exhibitors or exhibitor representatives with PR-related questions should consult the PR Opportunities page.

Media Registration Information

Online media registration is now closed.

A limited number of media passes will be available in the onsite Media Center beginning Monday, April 27. Media registration is not guaranteed onsite, but please be prepared to show media identification and a recently published industry-related article.

Please email with any questions.

Required Credentials for a Media Pass

Due to high demand, media badges are limited in number and will be issued only to representatives from news outlets, major analyst firms and leading industry blogs. To qualify for a complimentary media pass, applicants must cover the IT industry on a regular basis and present bylined articles or reports published within the past six months. Publishers, marketing/PR professionals and other sales or C-level non-media titles will not be accepted.

Media passes are not issued to those writing confidential content or content solicited by an exhibiting company.

Private consultants paid by an individual company are not eligible for a media pass, and should request a pass from the sponsoring company.

Reporters from online trade/business publications, newspapers and wire services must provide bylined articles published within the past six months. Outlets must contain original news content beyond links, forums, troubleshooting tips and reader contributions, and have a readership of more than 1,000 per month.
