Press Registration

Press Registration for C2E2 2019 is now open!

C2E2 welcomes members of the press from around the world – whether you write for the Daily Bugle or the Quibbler – and is happy to provide approved media members with a complimentary C2E2 Press Badge. Press registration is open for journalists regularly making editorial contributions (editorial press) only. Editorial press includes writers, reporters, reviewers, producers, photographers, cameramen, etc. who are attending specifically to write about C2E2 and/or cover the event for newspapers, magazines, TV, blogs, podcasts, radio, etc.

Please review the following information carefully.

Application Process and Important Info

  • Press badges are limited in nature and will be issued only to professionally employed adults. Badges will not be issued to children, family or guests.
  • If you intend to come to C2E2 with a crew (photographer, cameraman, etc.), each member of this crew must complete an application. 
  • All application decisions are final. C2E2 reserves the right to approve or deny any application and limit the number of press badges provided to any organization. Decisions are final and cannot be appealed. Each is issued individually and is non-transferable and non-resellable. 
  • Any individuals caught transferring or selling their press badge will be disqualified from press badges at future ReedPOP events.
  • As with all ReedPOP events, C2E2 is a “fans first” event and approval to receive a press badge is not guaranteed. We must maintain a high standard of excellence when we award press badges so please understand that: 
    • Your press badge allows access as long as space is permitting. Your press badge does not allow early access, special access or guaranteed seating. Please plan to arrive for panels you want to see early and do not schedule interviews with exhibitors prior to the Show Floor opening.
    • Your press badge does not allow you to cut lines.
    • Your press badge will not allow access into any events requiring an additional ticket.
  • All press registrations are subject to approval. If your registration is NOT approved, you will also be notified. If you have been approved, additional information regarding press badge distribution will be provided in your confirmation email and receipt.
  • Please understand that simply submitting an application does not guarantee you a press badge. It is only after this full form is received, reviewed and approved that a press badge will be issued. Incomplete applications will not be approved.
  • Answer every question on the application as truthfully and completely as you can. There are limited press badges available, which will be distributed across print, radio, television, websites, blogs and podcasts. Please provide as much and as detailed information as you can. Incomplete and vague applications will not be approved.
  • We highly recommend that you apply early, because we will reach maximum capacity for press badges prior to C2E2 2019. There will be no press registration during C2E2.
  • Applications will be reviewed in three blocks, with status emails being sent out within the confines of the dates outlined below.
