About Media Registration

Welcome to the Interop Media Center. Here you will find helpful information to guide you through the press registration process as well as other media resources. Exhibitor or sponsor representatives with PR-related questions should consult the PR Opportunities page.

Media Registration for Interop 2020 is now open.

Required Credentials for a Media Pass

To qualify for a complimentary media pass, applicants must cover the IT industry on a regular basis and present bylined articles or reports published within the past six months. Publishers, marketing/PR professionals, and other sales or C-level non-media titles will not be accepted.

Media passes are not issued to those writing confidential content or content solicited by an exhibiting company. Private consultants paid by an individual company are not eligible for a media pass, and should request a pass from the sponsoring company.

Media credentials granted for previous Informa/UBM events do not guarantee a media pass to Interop. We reserve the right to refuse media badges. For additional information please contact us at [email protected].
