Press Frequently Asked Questions

How do I apply for a Press Badge?

Q: How do I apply for a Press Badge?

A: Please review the Press Badge qualifications information and submit a Press Pass Registration form. You will receive a response via e-mail within ten (10) business days. If you do not hear back from us, please follow up with the PMX Press Relations Manager.

Q: Do I qualify for Major Press?

A: If you work for a major regional, a national broadcast, or a news outlet such as the L.A Weekly, The Los Angeles Times, Variety, KSCI18, etc., and you are here to cover Pacific Media Expo 2013, you qualify for Major Press.

Q: What's the difference between Emerging Press and Standard Press?

A: Our press guidelines allow new or amateur press to attend and get to know us as we get to know them, while continuing our relations with established press. Emerging Press registrants are welcome to request Standard Badges the following year.

Q: What's the difference between Press Badge Approval and having a Press Badge?

A: A confirmation e-mail will not get you into the convention. You must pick up a physical badge at the Press Office. All members of the press must wear their badges at all times if conducting press-related business during the event.

Q: What do I need when I pick up my badge?

A: To pick up your badge, you will need:

  • A photo ID. PMX will not issue badges without one! For identification purposes, you may only pick up your own badge. Business cards are also encouraged.
  • Credentials and/or e-mail waiver (if applicable).
  • Registration receipt page printout with web registration code.
  • Your coverage from last year (if applicable).
  • A reachable cell/room phone number during con hours.

Q: I'm registered as Emerging Press, but I still want to cover the concerts!

A: As an approved press attendee, your con membership, of course, is complimentary. You are welcome to purchase tickets to special events. PMX will provide professional-quality photos of concerts, and the convention overall, to interested press organizations, for use in con coverage. If you seek access to the special event press area/photo pit after purchasing your ticket but prior to the event, you may request an exception from the PMX Press Relations Manager.

Q: How do I obtain preferred or assigned seating for special events?

A: Major and Standard Press: Please check in at the Press Office at least two hours before the show, and be there thirty minutes before seating begins in case of special announcements or instructions from the PMX Press Relations Manager, Security, etc. We will head down together and you will be escorted to the press area.

Q: How do I interview a Guest of Honor?

A: Press will be offered preferred seating and access during combined fan and press panels. Some Guests of Honor (GoH) may also be available for private press conferences. Press members are encouraged to ask questions, but also share the time with other press members and fans. Members of the press are absolutely NOT allowed to bring guests into GoH interviews. If you would like to conduct a one-on-one interview with a GoH, please contact the PMX Press Relations Manager for consideration. You MUST provide your own interpreter for private interviews.

**NOTE: Only Major and Standard Press registrants are permitted to request private interviews.

Q: Why might my Press Badge be revoked?

A: Reasons for revocation include but are not limited to:

  • Bothering a Guest of Honor.
  • Requesting autographs or sketches outside the normal autograph sessions.
  • Bringing non-press guests to interviews or special events.
  • Unprofessional and/or inappropriate behavior.
  • Violation of any policy set forth by the Press Office and Pacific Media Expo 2013.

Note: The PMX Press Manager and Pacific Media Expo retain the right to revoke any badge at any time for any reason whatsoever.
