Press Credentials

1105 Government Information Group Events Press Policy

 

1105 Government Information Group reserves the right to limit press credentials to bona fide news organizations.  We reserve the right to deny any applicant a press badge.  Submitting the registration request does not automatically qualify you for a press badge.

 

All event content – including keynote presentations, panel/track sessions, professional education seminars, etc. – is the sole property of 1105 Government Information Group and cannot be reused or rebroadcast in its entirety.  In addition, some session content might be closed to the press for security purposes.  These sessions will be noted at the Press Registration table upon check-in.

 

Members of the media are welcome to attend any open session for reporting purposes, and use portions of the session content for bona fide news coverage.  Direct connection to the onsite audio/video equipment by all media is prohibited unless cleared through 1105 Government Information Group prior to the event.  Again, all recorded material is restricted from being broadcast in its entirety.  Only portions/snippets of the material can be used to support news stories.

Please note you will have to supply one of the following materials at registration in order to receive your press badge for the conference.  All media personnel will be required to present a government issued photo ID to receive their badges on-site.  All others not included in the guidelines below do not qualify as media.  Those individuals who do not qualify as press may register for the conference and/or exhibition, but are responsible for all associated fees.
