Media Passes

For media interested in covering the trade show only, no media pass is required although we appreciate you letting us know of your interest in advance.

Media who wish to attend a workshop or event at the conference require a media pass.

Contact Susan if you are interested in receiving a Media Pass, providing the following information:

  • Your full name
  • Which workshops/events you wish to attend
  • The name of the media outlet(s) you will be representing, including links to their websites.

It is at the discretion of the Communications Coordinator, Conference Manager and Conference Board Members if media passes will be provided.

Please also note that access to some workshops and special events for media is limited due to cost/availability.

Media passes for the Thursday Full Day Workshop and Thursday Evening Seminar are strictly limited.  Any requests for media passes for these workshops must be received in advance by the Communications Coordinator.

Media passes are not available for the Friday evening Organic Food & Wine Dinner.
