Media Registration Process

Members of the working media wishing to attend and cover any part of the 2024 East Coast Symposium must be registered attendees of the meeting. There is no charge for credentialed media to attend, but note that you or your organization will be responsible for hotel reservations and travel arrangements (these are not included with registration), which should be made in advance.

How to Apply for a Press Badge

To apply for a press badge, members of the media should be prepared to provide the following:

  • Photo identification (such as a driver’s license or passport)

  • Media identification certifying that you are a working member of a recognized print, broadcast, or online media outlet (such as a business card, accredited press pass, or an official media outlet–issued credential)

  • An assignment letter from an editor, assistant editor, assignment editor, or designated organization official confirming that the journalist will be representing the organization and explaining the intended use of the resulting coverage (Bloggers may submit an overview of their blog and explain the intended use of the resulting coverage in lieu of an assignment letter.)

Prior to applying, please review the East Coast Symposium Press Policies & Procedures.

Once your application has been reviewed, you will receive notice of its approval or denial via email. If approved, you will also receive registration confirmation.

Media credentials will be available for pickup onsite at the Registration Desk.
