MEDIA ELIGIBILITY

Press registration and credentials are available only to members of the working media who can demonstrate that their attendance results in original coverage of the 2017 NSGC Annual Conference. NSGC does not issue press credentials to advertising, marketing, public relations or sales representatives; publishers, promotional publications; public relations staff of exhibitors or educational institutions; writers creating analyses or reports sold as a commodity to customers; or other individuals who are not actually reporting on the NSGC Annual Conference.

In order to obtain press credentials, media must present identification certifying that they are a working member of the print, broadcast or online news media and/or a letter from an editor stating that you have been assigned to cover the 2017 NSGC Annual Conference. Working press may not also register as exhibitors.
