Media and Press
One of the main ways an event such as ours is successful is with the help of media. However you spread the word about us, we are interested in making it as easy as possible for you to do so. We've got pre-made logo packs, stock photography, and contact information for you to use to get everything you need as quickly as possible. If you have any questions please contact us via our contact page.
Our logos are available as a zip file. This includes our logo in a variety of colour themes (regular, solid black/white, simple colours) and formats (EPS and PNG). This way you can choose the one that fits best on your background, or if you want any custom changes feel free to contact us.
We've got a ton of photos available on our website and Facebook account. On our Facebook page the photos are separated by event. You can visit the page here. Be sure to credit our official show photographer, Jo Gorsky, if you use one of his photos.
Media Badges / Press Passes
Are you a media company wanting to shoot video or conduct interviews? Then a special badge is required, so please contact us ahead of time to arrange it for you! Press or media who have previously covered the show should just send us an email.
Press Passes are given to the news organization only (not to an individual). Examples of these organizations are TV Stations, Radio Stations, Newspapers, and Industry Magazines.
We do not provide press passes to independent show producers, private production companies, website operators, research projects, or individuals. While we will make every attempt to research and respond to all inquiries, if you do not receive a response it indicates that your request was denied. Please note that a valid driver's license (or other appropriate government issued form of I.D.) and a business card are required to pick up your badge.
Blogs or Small Websites
Do you run a personal blog or website and want to cover our event? Please send us a link to your website, an overview of your website analytics (mainly how many visitors you get per month), and why you think your website is an appropriate fit for our show. We do not issue any badges to blogs/websites, but we will definitely look into having you on our guest list!
Thank you for your interest, but at the present moment we are not issuing badges to photographers. You are welcome to bring your small non-professional camera to the show to take pictures (not video), but you must get permission of the person you are taking the photograph of.
