We have two media badge types: Working Media and Media Sales.

Working Media must have a current editorial assignment while media sales attendees include ad sales, publishers, producers, marketing staff, promotion companies, casting directors, filmmakers, and agencies – social media / PR / advertising/ brand / creative.

Please provide a letter from the news director or assignment editor on station/network letterhead saying that you have been assigned to represent the organization in an editorial capacity at (e)revolution. AND at TWO credentials:
  1. A station-issued, current press photo I.D.

What if I don’t have an assignment?

Media without a current cycling-industry-related assignment will not be approved for a Working Media badge, but are welcome to join us with a Media Sales badge.

I have a website or blog; can I attend as Working Media?

We welcome digital publications, but to be considered for a Working Media badge, you must have a previously established, independent site that is updated at least biweekly with original, industry-related news. The site must have a proven track record showing coverage of the cycling and related space for at least one year.

YouTube, Facebook, Twitter sites, personal blogs, forums, crowd-sourcing sites, and user groups will not be considered for Working Media accreditation but can apply for Media Sales badges.

Can I register for a media badge onsite at the show?

Yes, media may register onsite during published registration hours. (e)revolution will have a representative onsite to review and qualify registering media. Please note that travel to the show does not guarantee admittance.

What is the difference between “Working Media” and “Media Sales” badges?

Working Media badges indicate to exhibitors and retailers that the person has a current editorial assignment with a relevant publication. Media Sales badges indicate the wearer is in ad sales, publishing, production, marketing, promotion, a casting director, filmmaker, or from an agency – social media / PR / advertising/ brand / creative.
