Press Passes

The Phocuswright Conference features senior executives and key influencers from numerous sectors of the travel, tourism and hospitality industry and provides an excellent opportunity for members of the print and online media.

The Phocuswright Conference offers members of the media:

  • The ability to conduct interviews with industry leaders and analysts in a relaxed environment.
  • All-inclusive passes for admittance to scheduled conference programs, luncheons and cocktail receptions.
  • Speaker and sponsor/exhibitor information.

Complimentary press passes are available to professional members of the media who are "working press" on assignment covering the event or the companies presenting. To qualify for a pass, you must be employed by or freelance for the editorial side of a travel, business, financial or general news/lifestyle print or online publication (excludes company and member newsletters), or produce news segments for a broadcast network. Your role or title at the print or online publication or broadcast network cannot be in a sales, promotional or executive capacity (i.e. publisher, CEO, public relations titles do not qualify for complimentary press passes). Consultants, book writers and others who are not working press do not qualify for press passes. To qualify for a press pass, you must earn your living as a journalist.

You will be asked to submit recent, relevant bylined articles or describe your qualifications. Your attendance at past Phocuswright Conferences on a press pass does not automatically qualify you for a press pass for this year's conference. The pass is valid for all conference sessions, meals and materials.

Phocuswright reserves the right to qualify journalists upon receipt of the application. Questions should be directed to events15@phocuswright.com or +1 860 350-4084 x500. Your request for a press pass acknowledges that we may share your contact information with conference attendees (we will not divulge your email address without permission, however).

Members of the press are not permitted to sell or promote any company or product at any time during the event.
