Request a Press Pass

Media Pass Badge Lanyard - Reporter Access at Event or Interview

Press passes are provided to contributing writers or freelancers who have the required credentials and will be writing about the VO Atlanta conference event. All press personnel must be pre-qualified and pre-registered to attend. The credentials of members of the media arriving at a VO Atlanta event without pre-registering will be denied entry to the event. A press pass, available for pick-up onsite, will admit working media — free of charge — to all exhibits, keynotes, conference sessions, lunches, special events, and press-only events. This does NOT include X-Session workshops which take place during the event.

Thank you for your interest in providing coverage of VO Atlanta.  We look forward to reviewing your request and have provided some guidance below outlining our requirements.

Qualified members of the media may request a media pass to VO Atlanta.  If you have attended VO Atlanta previously in such a capacity, you will still need to request a pass for the current conference.

You will be notified via email if your request is accepted, or if additional information is required.  If you have any questions, feel free to email admin@voatlanta.me.

Please review the requirements and click the button below to request a press pass. Be sure to include a sample of your press credentials with your submission.

Admittance

VO Atlanta reserves the right to refuse or rescind a press pass for any reason. However, the primary reasons for such extreme steps would typically be: 1) failure to provide adequate credentials (required pre-registration) or 2) unprofessional conduct by a media delegate during the course of the event. Additionally, VO Atlanta reserves the right to modify or waive these requirements at any time but will honor existing press registrations.

Cancellation

A press conference pass includes all conference sessions, breakfasts, lunches, special events and bag. Since we incur considerable costs on a press delegate’s behalf, we request cancellation notice be given at least five days in advance.

Audio Taping

Audio taping is not permitted without the express written consent from VO Atlanta.

Media and Audio Release

From time to time we use photographs, video, audio, and written feedback of conference participants in our promotional materials. By virtue of your attendance at our conference, you acknowledge that VO Atlanta reserves the right to use your likeness in such materials.
