Press Center FAQs
The following people are eligible for media badges:
- Publishers and anyone in an editorial position with trade publications or consumer media
- Publication sales people that have exhibits or trade outs with the show
Business cards are required for obtaining a media badge.
Salespeople with publications that are not exhibitors and not involved in a trade out will be charged $350 to attend until September 9. September 10 – October 17: $400. Onsite: $450. This is the same admission fee charged to manufacturers and suppliers who are not exhibitors. This policy is intended to provide a benefit to the show’s exhibitors by decreasing the number of solicitations in the aisles of the show floor.
Do not register online. In order to receive free media credentials, you must use the Official Media Badge Application or you can call the media office at (502) 562-1969 to request a form. If you register by October 1, you will receive your badge by mail. If you register after October 1, you can pick up your press credentials in the Press Center at the Ky.
