Members of the media – including reporters, writers, editors, photographers and production crews – are encouraged to register in advance to receive complimentary press passes for the co-located Defense TechConnect, SBIR/STTR and Smart Cities Connect Programs.
Press passes allow complete access to the following:
To apply for a press pass, please send your credentials: [ ]
Marketing, advertising, sales, art directors, managers, publishers and other non-editorial professionals of media organizations are NOT eligible for press passes and should proceed to the Attendee Registration page.
If you are a broadcast journalist, please have your producer/editor : stating that you are on assignment to cover the Summit.
After we have received your credentials, they will be reviewed and are subject to approval based on availability and management's discretion. You will be notified within two weeks if you are approved or disapproved. Submitting a press pass request does not guarantee that you will receive a press pass, and press passes will not be granted to anyone whose principal purpose for attending our event is -- in our judgement -- for reasons other than covering them as working news media.
Members of the Media will pick up their press passes, in person, at the registration desk when they arrive at the Summit.
Media credentials are extended with the expectation that recipients will behave with decorum at all times within event venues. Failure to honor this request may result in suspension or withdrawal of media privileges.
*Participation by any United States Federal Agency in any TechConnect activity or event does not constitute an expressed or implied endorsement of anycosponsor, donor, grantee, contractor or participant’s opinions, products, or services.
