Media Registration

Interop ITX Media Registration

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

Exhibitor or sponsor representatives with PR-related questions should consult the PR Opportunities page.

 

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.  

Media credentials granted for previous UBM events do not guarantee a media pass to Interop ITX. We reserve the right to refuse media badges. For additional information please contact us at InteropPR@ubm.com.
