Media Credential Policy
Journalists often attend the NCA's events, including our Annual Convention and Coffee Summit, for the latest market insights and to meet industry leaders IRL. To better fulfill incoming media requests, we are implementing a media credentialing process.
Members of the media interested in attending an NCA event for editorial purposes must complete our brief Media Credential Application Form to be eligible.
Please submit your application electronically to email@example.com, or by fax at 212-766-5815.
The NCA will review each request on an individual basis. The NCA reserves the right to approve or deny Credentials. Applications are due two weeks (10 business days) before the event begins.
Credentialed media receive one (1) complimentary registration to the requested event, as well as a complimentary copy of the NCDT report. Drop tables will also be available at NCA events for credentialed journalists to leave complimentary copies of their publications for attendees.
Only one journalist per outlet may receive media credentials for an event. Any additional journalists who wish to attend from the same publication must purchase event registration(s) at the member or non-member rate, whichever is applicable. Credentials are only valid for the specified event.
Please note that if you attend an NCA event in 2015 as an accredited journalist, you must submit your coverage before December 31, 2015 to remain in good standing for the following year.
Journalists who are not credentialed, as well as publishing professionals whose primary roles are not editorially focused (e.g., publishers or sales representatives, etc.), may attend NCA events by purchasing registrations at the applicable rates.
Media outlets interested expanding their reach in the industry may also be interested in our NCA Media Partner program.
