Whether you work for a mainstream media outlet or an online publication, this article will equip you with all the essential information you need to make the most of your EXPODFW experience.
## What is a Press Pass?
A Press Pass is more than just a complimentary admission to the conference; it opens doors to a world of insightful sessions, keynote addresses, and special functions. It provides journalists and media staff with the opportunity to cover the event from various angles and interact with industry leaders and experts. However, it is important to note that Press Passes do not include EXPODFW membership rights; they are solely meant for access to the conference.
## Press Pass Eligibility
Press Passes are exclusively available to working press staff, which encompasses individuals employed by recognized media outlets such as television and radio stations, newspapers, and other forms of news coverage. To qualify, you must be on official assignment from your media outlet, intending to cover EXPODFW and its related topics. Immediate supporting and technical staff, such as producers, photographers, camera operators, and sound personnel, are also eligible for Press Passes.
## Securing a Press Pass
At EXPODFW, we give priority to proposals from journalists who have a track record of providing insightful coverage in areas related to digital marketing. If you belong to a mainstream or online media outlet with the capacity to reach large or influential audiences, you stand a strong chance of obtaining a Press Pass. Additionally, we highly value specific commission proposals that focus on coverage of the conference as a whole, rather than just individual speakers or attendees.

## Press Pass Revocation
At EXPODFW, we prioritize maintaining the integrity of our events and ensuring a professional environment for all attendees. Therefore, we strictly prohibit individuals with press passes from marketing products or services to event attendees or exhibitors. Any violation of this policy will result in the immediate revocation of the press pass, and the individual will be asked to leave the event. Furthermore, such individuals will be barred from attending future events as press.
## Privacy, Photography, and Electronic Recording
To respect the privacy and comfort of all attendees, EXPODFW has specific rules regarding photography and electronic recording:
1. Attendees should be aware that photographs, videos, and audio recordings may occur during the convention, and their likenesses may appear in promotional materials. By attending the event, individuals agree to assign the use of their likenesses for promotional purposes without compensation.
2. To ensure a comfortable experience for everyone, attendees are encouraged to seek permission before taking photographs or recordings of fellow members and attendees. While personal archival use of photographs and audio/video recordings is generally acceptable, individuals who express their wish not to be photographed or recorded should be respected.
3. Certain areas of the conference have restricted photography and recording policies to avoid distracting speakers and audience members during sessions. If allowed, please take photographs before or after a session or event.
