Editorial members of approved print and broadcast outlets may register as working media. Eligibility is subject to approval by LightFair.
Editors/reporters planning to bring a camera to shoot photographs or video during the show must fill out the form. If you are approved, you will need to obtain and wear the photographer/videographer ribbon provided in the press room (those without the ribbon will be asked to stop shooting and/or leave the trade show floor).
LightFair encourages all media to pre-register. If media did not pre-register, they can register on site in the LightFair Media Center at the Javits Center.
Media are required to go to the LightFair Media Center first to be approved and then will need to go to the speaker/media registration to retrieve the badge printed.
Media must provide a business card on site in the LightFair Media Center to the attendant with press credentials, which includes (but is not limited to):
Note: Business cards will not be accepted as the only form of media identification for on-site registration. Media registering on site will need to bring press credentials or a masthead of publication and business card.
Online Media Registration for all media (new and returning).
Discounted accommodations (at participating hotels through onPeak).
All media need to register for each course/seminar that you would like to attend (information will come following approval of media credentials).
Freelance writers must provide an original letter of assignment via email to Amanda Merritt and a bylined article published within the past six months. Those who freelance occasionally and are employed by non-news organizations are not eligible for media credentials.
Electronic media representatives, including editors of websites, must present proof of an existing site with relevant editorial content and proof of circulation.
Business cards will not be accepted as the only form of media identification for on-site registration.
Approved media registered on site will be able to register for courses/seminars/luncheons if they are not sold-out.
All media, whether pre-registered or not, will need to go to the LightFair Media Center upon their arrival.
