ISTE 2016 media credentials may be provided to print, digital and broadcast reporters; active freelancers; and bloggers with an established reach of more than 100,000 who plan to cover the conference and expo for their outlets. Advertising personnel, media sales executives and public relations representatives do not qualify for media credentials. In addition, individuals who blog for corporate or other organizations’ newsrooms do not qualify for complimentary media registrations.
Any media applying for ISTE 2016 credentials that have previously covered the conference as registered media will be asked to provide links to past coverage as part of the application process. It is ISTE’s expectation that all coverage of the conference, its events and activities will be balanced and in accordance with the highest standards and ethics of professional journalism. In addition, all individuals receiving media credentials must adhere to the ISTE Code of Conduct.
ISTE will review all applications for media credentials within 15 days of submission.
This year, ISTE is piloting a program to support the growth of the edublogger community. Approximately 10 emerging edubloggers will be selected at ISTE’s sole discretion to receive ISTE 2016 media credentials.
While corporate bloggers are not eligible for complimentary media registrations, marketing/communications staff from ISTE Corporate Members and ISTE 2016 exhibitors may receive a media credential ribbon by visiting the press room onsite at ISTE 2016. To qualify for a media credential ribbon, individuals must have a full conference registration and complete a short form that details plans for covering ISTE 2016.
All media credentials will be available for pick-up in Colorado Convention Center Room 202 during open hours. In addition, the press room is available to all credentialed media for interviews and to work on stories.
The press room will be open and staffed:
Saturday, June 25: 7 a.m. – 6 p.m.
NOTE: ISTE 2016 exhibitor PR representatives may bring print press kits to the press room and periodically refresh their stack of materials. However, we cannot store or accept delivery of this material in the press room.
