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.
