Media Registration

MPI grants a limited number of complimentary registrations to editorial press staff — specifically editors, reporters, writers, producers, photographers, camera crews and select bloggers. Non-editorial press staff, such as sales directors, publishers and marketing or advertising representatives, are required to pay full registration rates to attend WEC.

To apply for complimentary registration, please provide the following credentials via email to the MPI Communications Team.

  • Website link for your publication or press outlet
  • Circulation and/or website traffic numbers for your press outlet
  • Links to three recent news stories with your byline about the meeting and event industry (Does not apply to business or local press)


Note, press contacts that previously attended WEC or EMEC in the past three years do not need to provide press credentials. It is highly recommended that interested press apply by May 19, 2017. Non-editorial press staff should proceed with regular event registration.

MPI reserves the right to refuse to register any individual as press and may limit the number of credentials issued to a single organization. Also, each WEC 2017 press badge is issued individually and is non-transferable.
