Press Credential Guidelines

As a service to APEC exhibitors, APEC provides media accreditation to members of the working press covering the conference and exhibits. Accreditation provides access to the plenary session, technical and industry sessions, professional education seminars, exhibition, other on-site events, social events and the press room. Accreditation is granted at APEC's discretion and media credentials are issued solely for the purposes of reporting on the conference, exhibits and other news associated with APEC.

Media accreditation is limited to those acting in an editorial capacity for relevant publications or news organizations. Publishers/associate publishers, sales, advertising, PR, marketing, market research, technical support staff, consultants and exhibiting company personnel are not eligible for press credentials.

Advance registration is recommended. Registration prior to the APEC conference early registration deadline is complementary for qualified applicants. Registrations received after the APEC conference early registration deadline or on-site are subject to a nominal fee
