MEDIA REGISTRATION

It is our pleasure to welcome working members of the media to cover AUVSI XPONENTIAL. To maintain quality news coverage, AUVSI requires media representatives to verify their roles. We have developed the following criteria for a complimentary media badge. If you do not meet these criteria and wish to attend the event, we invite you to register as an attendee.

To qualify for a media badge:

  1. The applicant should demonstrate they are working media and regularly cover the unmanned systems industry and its vertical markets or are a general assignment, business or technology reporter assigned to cover the unmanned systems industry.
  2. Editorial Only: Media representatives must belong to the editorial staff to receive a media badge.
  3. The following media representatives are welcome to attend the show but must register for an XPO Hall, Full Conference or VIP Pass: advertising sales representatives, commercial producers, marketing staff, promotion companies, public relations, social media and advertising/branding agencies, filmmakers and photographers for hire.
  4. Personal websites or hobby/enthusiast and personal blogs do not qualify for a media badge.
  5. A history of being registered at previous AUVSI events does not guarantee approval or waive the accreditation requirement. Travel to the show does not guarantee admittance.
  6. The deadline to register online and receive pre-approval is 12:00 PM EDT on Monday, April 20, 2020. After this date, registration will be onsite.

Vetting Criteria for Pending Media Badge by Category:

All media registrations are reviewed by AUVSI Show Management prior to the event. Anyone who applies for a media badge must meet the following criteria:

  • A scanned copy or link to the news outlet’s masthead indicating your name and title and editorial role.
  • A business card from the news outlet reflecting your editorial role.
  • Media badge indicating your affiliation with the news outlet that was issued by a federal, state or local government or agency.

Freelance and Contributing Writers and Photographers

The applicant should demonstrate they are working media and provide editorial content to news outlets as a primary business. Please submit the following credentials for review and consideration by AUVSI XPONENTIAL Show Management:

  • A scanned copy or link to original, bylined editorial coverage within the last three months, of the unmanned systems industry.
  • An email or scan of letter from the news outlet’s editor or producer stating that you have been assigned to represent the news organization in an editorial capacity.

  • URL of your website, blog, podcast or video (You Tube) channel.
  • Site analytics showing at least five thousand (5,000) unique visits per month.
  • Content is original and updated at least weekly.

The website must be previously established with a proven track record showing coverage of the unmanned systems industry for at least one (1) year. The site must be independent from corporate marketing, generate original news coverage of the unmanned systems industry (not a site that is only aggregating content) and updated at least weekly.

Exhibitor Websites and Blogs:

Exhibitors gathering content for their corporate websites and blogs will not be classified as media and will not receive media badges in addition to or in place of exhibitor badges. If taking photos of an exhibitor’s booth, equipment, technology, staff, etc., to accompany blog content, permission from booth staff is required.

  • Media badge indicating your affiliation with the news outlet that was issued by a federal, state or local government or agency.

Please Note the Following:

  • AUVSI XPONENTIAL Show Management will approve one publisher per media outlet, but that publisher will need to show their outlet covers the unmanned systems industry. Any additional publishers from an outlet will need to register for an XPO Hall, Full Conference or VIP Pass.
  • Self-promoting blogs and blogs that merely aggregate third-party content will not be considered for a media badge. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest sites, forums, crowd sourcing sites and user groups are not considered media credentials.
  • With a media badge, freelance and contributing writers and photographers are not permitted to solicit their services at XPONENTIAL.

The Following Onsite Registrants Will Not Be Provided Media Badges:

  • Requests without the required credentials described above.
  • Individuals who applied online and were denied a media badge.

Right of Refusal:

AUVSI XPONENTIAL Show Management reserves the right to deny media badges at their sole discretion. Show Management also reserves the right to modify media qualification credentials at any time. Misconduct or misrepresentation of position and/or publication/news organization will bar you and your organization from all future AUVSI events.
