Due to high demand, media badges are limited in number and will be issued only to representatives from news outlets, major analyst firms and leading industry blogs. To qualify for a complimentary media pass, applicants must cover the licensing industry on a regular basis and present bylined articles or reports published within the past six months. Publishers, marketing/PR professionals and other sales or C-level non-media titles will not be accepted.

Media passes are not issued to photographers without formal commission from a news organization or to reporters who are writing confidential content or content solicited by an exhibiting company. Private consultants paid by an individual company are not eligible for a media pass and should request a pass from the sponsoring company. Media credentials granted for previous UBM events do not guarantee a media pass to Licensing Expo – applications will be individually reviewed for each event.

For additional information about required credentials, please contact the team: [email protected].
