Thank you for your interest in media accreditation for upcoming Lift Events & Experiences! Below you will find qualification requirements and other important details:
Who Qualifies for a Pre-Approved Media Badge?
Press: Classified as working journalists in print, broadcast and digital media for established trade or consumer publications, online or broadcast media outlets. This includes reporters, writers, editors, producers, photographers and camera crews.
Freelancers: Freelance journalists must have published or broadcast within the past 12 months on topics related to the cannabis industry. Please submit clips or article links with your accreditation request.
Podcast Hosts & Producers: Podcast hosts and producers must have a minimum of six current episodes covering topics related to the cannabis industry. Please submit clips or links with your accreditation request.
Bloggers & Social Media Influencers: Must have created new content within the past three months on topics related to the cannabis industry (product giveaways and contests do not qualify). Applicants will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis based on traffic, content relevance and quality, audience engagement and frequency of posts.
On-Site Media Accreditation: If you are unable to apply for pre-approval, please present a business card from your media organization with your name and title at the registration desk. Badges from prior years or other events do not qualify in lieu of a business card. Alternately, freelance journalists may present a letter of assignment, clip or link to a bylined article published within the last 12 months that is relevant to the cannabis industry. Additional materials may be requested. Please note that on-site accreditation is not open to bloggers, social media influencers and podcasters, which must be pre-approved.
All approvals are at the discretion of Lift Events & Experiences staff. We reserve the right to change your badge classification at any time.
