TFcon is happy to extend a complimentary Press Badge to members of the press. In order to ensure that Press Badges are distributed to legitimate members of the press, who directly contribute to editorial content, TFcon requires all attendees who wish to request a Press Badge to complete an application for review. Completion of this application does not guarantee a Press Badge will be issued, but rather that the application will be reviewed and if deemed appropriate, a badge will be issued.
Please keep in mind, Press Badges do not allow early access into the Show Floor (except as detailed on the Official Website), Special Events or Ticketed Experiences. Press Badges do not allow for cutting of lines, priority seating (except as detailed on show site), or for entry to Meet and Greets (unless arrangements have been made in advance and approved by TFcon Management). Additionally, Press Badges do not grant free autographs from our Celebrity Guests.
Press wishing to have entry into any ticketed event will require a purchase of a separate ticket for that event.
Press Badges are issued complimentary, and as such, we ask that badges not be passed off or swapped out with anyone other than the person that it was issued to. Please understand that if TFcon is aware that a person in possession of a Press Badge is not the person it was issued to, we will escort that person in possession from the Show Site, and both the person it was issued to and the person in possession of the badge will be banned from future events.
TFcon defines “PRESS” as a journalist regularly making editorial submissions to content destinations including Websites, Radio, TV, Media and Printed Press, this includes: Writers, Reporters, Reviewers, Producers, Photographers, Cameramen, etc. who will be in attendance to specifically cover the happenings at TFcon. Other members of those industries that are not considered “PRESS” by our definition, may submit an application but will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Press Badges are only issued for the individual who is covering TFcon, not for assistants, family or children.
To apply for a Press Badge, please complete the Official Press Application on this page and submit it for review. We will contact you back closer to the show with approval.
As Management of the TFcon show, we reserve the right to approve or deny any application for Press Badges. It is our intention to approve legitimate press for a complimentary badge, so please ensure that the application is filled out thoroughly.
If you have any questions in advance about the show, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. These questions should only be regarding content information on the show itself, not about logistics of your application, etc.
