Press Policies

Starting with Natural Products Expo East 2017, our press policies have changed.

Press badges are reserved for well-qualified editorial staff from approved media outlets. Press credentials are not carried over year to year, you must register each year. Click here to view press categories and qualification requirements.

Natural Products Expos / New Hope Network reserves the right to refuse media badges, without cause, during pre-registration as well as onsite media registration. Due to high demand, media badges are limited in number.

Photography/Videography Policy

Qualified press—who wishes to photograph or film at the show is required to check in at the Press Room on-site to sign a waiver and receive authorization upon each day of filming.

Live TV and nationally syndicated film crews must check in at the Press Room and must be approved on-site in order to photograph and/or videotape at the show.

Private consultants who are paid by an individual company are not eligible for a press badge, and should register as business services. See press room personnel for complete information on qualifying for a press badge. Exhibitors and their private consultants are permitted to photograph and videotape their own booth only.

Photographers and videographers are required to obtain permission before filming any exhibitor's booth and must refrain from filming those who do not grant permission.

Qualified press who have obtained press passes and are photographing and/or filming at the show may not, under any circumstances, solicit payment from exhibitors for service. Those who are found to be soliciting payment will have their press passes immediately revoked, and may be banned from future events.

Filming, videotaping and photography are prohibited at all events, education and seminar sessions, including keynote presentations. Exhibitors and their private consultants may film, photograph and/or videotape their own exhibitor-presented seminar(s) only.

Attendee indemnifies and holds harmless New Hope Network and Penton Media, Inc., their respective parent, subsidiaries and affiliates, with respect to any claims from any third party claims whatsoever arising from Attendee's media activities under this waiver.

Photographers and videographers are required to ask permission before filming and must refrain from filming those who do not grant permission. Exhibitors are permitted to photograph and videotape their own booth only. Exhibitors who do not want the press to photograph or videotape their booth should inform the Press Room staff onsite.

No other photography or videography is permitted. We reserve the right to refuse entrance to any photographer/videographer.
