To attend Automate 2017 as a member of the press, we encourage you to pre-register.  To request a press pass to Automate 2017, please email Bob Doyle, Director of Communications.

Onsite registration will require that you bring your press credentials (official press badge from your organization, or business card from that organization) to the Automate 2017 registration desk. You must be a member of the working press to obtain a press badge and to enter the Automate 2017 Press Room. A press badge provides entrance to the show and press conferences and entrance to any conference session, simply show your badge to the conference room monitor.

Press will be admitted to the show floor from 9:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. the first three days of the show and 9:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m. the last day of the show. If any member of the press needs to access the show floor earlier, please contact show management.

Working press may take overall pictures or vides of the show, lobby, registration area and general overhead views. Close-up photos or videos of a booth or products on display may only be taken by working press after securing permission to do so from the exhibitor.
