Press FAQs

Press registration will open later this year. So enjoy your summer and check back later this fall

When is the deadline for submitting Press credentials?

Press registration will open later this year and all deadlines will be announced then. Check back in the fall for more info.

How will I know if I and/or my outlet have been approved or denied a Press badge?

From the time that your application is received, it will take up to 21 business days to process. Once your application has been reviewed, you will be contacted of the status. If you do not receive a response within that time frame, please contact us to make sure that we received it.

How and when do I and/or my outlet receive our Press badges?

All Press Badges are picked up onsite at the C2E2 Press Registration counter.  You will need to bring a photo ID with you. You cannot pick up badges for anyone else. Each badge is issued individually and non-transferable. You may not transfer or sell your C2E2 Press Badge, and any individuals conducting such behavior will be disqualified from Press Badges at future ReedPOP events.

I and/or my outlet were approved last year for a Press badges. Why am I being denied this year?

The value of obtaining a Press Badge to C2E2 cannot be underestimated, and there are several factors that go into the approval process. We are a 'fans first' event and we must maintain a high standard of excellence when we award press credentials. As the show continues to grow this process becomes tighter and more restrictive. Inevitably, some media outlets who had previously gained entrance will be denied access in following years and vice versa (you may have been denied in previous years and now been accepted based on your continued growth, media reach, etc.). Each year should be treated as a fresh opportunity to apply for Press Credentials.

Can I request an additional Press Badge for someone on my team?

Each person requesting a Press Badge must apply separately.

If approved, what does a Press Badge provide?

Press Badges are valid for entry to all un-ticketed events held at C2E2 as long as space is permitting.

If approved, what does a Press Badge NOT provide?

  • Your Press Badge does not allow early access, special access or guaranteed seating.
  • Your Press Badge does not allow you to cut lines.
  • Your Press Badge will not allow access into any events requiring an additional ticket beyond a general entry badge. Should you wish access to a special ticketed event, you must first have your 2014 C2E2 Press Badge application approved, and you must then request access for specific ticketed events directly with C2E2's Press Office.

Anything else I should know?

Press Badges are limited in nature and issued only to professionally employed adults. Badges are not issued to children, family or guests. Each is issued individually and non-transferable. You may not transfer or sell your C2E2 Press Badge, and any individuals conducting such behavior will be disqualified from Press Badges at future ReedPOP events.

I still have a question. Who do I contact to get an answer?

You can email C2E2Press@ReedExpo.com and our Press team will get back to you as soon as possible.
