Press Pass

Press Pass

Requests for a Press Pass from media contacts—local, regional, national and international—to attend HGA’s Convergence® conference should be faxed or mailed to HGA on the media contact’s business letterhead with a business card included. Please include information as to the media contacts target audience and airing or publication date. Requests will be accepted beginning four months prior to the Convergence® conference.

Information about HGA, Convergence® conference Exhibits, Gallery Guide, Fashion Show, and Convergence® conference Speakers will be sent by HGA, along with the letter to the media contact indicating if the request has been granted. The letter will also include information as to where the media contact should pick up their Press Pass Badge and tickets. An HGA Staff member or other HGA appointed representative will respond to requests for Press Passes as well as requests for statements, interviews or specific statistical information.

Press Pass includes a name badge with the contact’s name and the word PRESS, which allows the media guest entrance into the Vendor Hall as well as to the exhibits that are housed at the Convention Center. A member of the HGA staff will be on hand to answer questions about HGA and the Convergence® conference as well as to offer additional support information.

Media contacts who request special event tickets are invited to purchase tickets, as available on site at the advertised rate. No admission to seminars, studios, or workshops will be granted as part of a Press Pass.

The HGA staff maintains the list of requests for Press Passes that will be needed on site. This list will be provided to Volunteers at the Registration Desk and to the HGA Board PR Chair.
