PRESS ACCREDITATION - Please Read
We have a limited number of press passes available for our events nationwide. Showmasters events have featured on the BBC and Reuters, and in The Guardian, The Times and many many more. We like to encourage all types of press to our events, from photographers to bloggers and we even reserve some passes for media students.
All passes are allocated on a discretionary basis. We try to be as fair as possible, though demand regularly outstrips availability and. If your application is successful we will contact you by email no earlier than two weeks before an event. We try to take into account supplied information such as potential audience and reach, potential outlets and the nature of the request when allocating press passes.
Press Passes are not a guarantee if you apply for one - they are very limited due to the nature of these events - the only way you can guarantee entry to the event is to purchase an entry ticket, although entry is included as part of the Press Pass it's main function should always be considered as giving access to the guests for interviews, not entry to the event. If you purchase event related tickets such as photo shoots or talk tickets in advance, we would strongly advise you to purchase an entry ticket at the same time to avoid any problems if a press pass is not then allocated.
Passes ARE NOT allocated on a first come first served basis - simply submit your request before the deadline to be considered.
Passes are not issued on the day at the event, pre-event registration only.
Due to growing demand we can only offer a maximum of 2 passes per company/outlet.
If you are Freelance, or if you are a student, please use the additional information box to include details of the names of the publications/websites that carried your last published articles, or the name of your course, including the name of your college or university.
