Media Registration

NACS welcomes members of the working editorial press to cover the NACS Show and report upon its activities, and provides complimentary registration to qualified media. Because of the increasing breadth and diversity of media attending the Show, NACS has developed a media registration policy to ensure that the value of media credentials is maintained for qualified journalists.  

Online registration for the 2018 NACS Show is open until October 3. If you choose to register onsite in Las Vegas at the NACS Show, you must bring appropriate editorial credentials to the Media counter located in the main registration area, room N258.

Overall Guidelines

  • NACS media registration is open to working journalists with commercial news organizations only. This does not include research organizations.
  • For the NACS Show, sales representatives/public relations staff with exhibiting publications should register for exhibitor passes; sales/marketing representatives from non-exhibiting companies should register through general registration. These personnel may be unable to attend other NACS events.
  • The reporter/writer intends to cover the NACS Show, or some aspect that reflects on NACS for the news outlet. Further, specific coverage must be the reporter/writer’s focus: NACS does not grant passes for those who simply wish to “make contacts” and “learn about what’s new.”
  • Media credentials/badges from other shows that are not related to NACS events are not considered valid media credentials.
  • Companions and other non-credentialed guests of media representatives are not eligible for complimentary media registration.
  • NACS reserves the right to refuse media credentials for publications that cannot be verified or that it deems not substantive in reach or content; all requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
  • NACS reserves the right to revoke previously issued media credentials when appropriate.
