Welcome members of the Press. Below, you'll find information for your reference and use. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

To obtain a press badge for PROCESS EXPO 2021, working members of the editorial media may register in advance by contacting Kim Porter at [email protected]. PROCESS EXPO press registration will open in April 2021, and an email will be sent stating whether press credentials have been approved or denied. If approved, press badges will be available for pick up at the show (no badges will be mailed prior to the event).

Bloggers: Please include your URL when registering for the event. To be considered for approval, blogs must pertain to the subject matter covered at PROCESS EXPO and include postings about the show within the last month.

Freelancers: You must submit a byline or editorial credit in a masthead published within the last six months. All registrations will be verified through a national media database.

Analysts: Market research analysts with an approved firm will be granted complimentary access to the show. Proper identification is required, including a copy of, or a link to, a published industry-related article from the past six months (must have name in byline).

Press IDs from membership organizations are not sufficient for verification: A history of being registered at previous events or other recognized trade shows does not guarantee approval or waive any aforementioned requirements. Misrepresentation of position and/or publication/news organization will bar you and your organization from all future events.
