Terms & Conditions
- Media accreditation for mesh will be decided based upon the following criteria:
- Fit of publication to mesh topics and speakers
- Quality of applicant’s personal output and that of his/her media outlet
- Audience reach of media outlet(s)
- Proposed coverage plans that generate maximum exposure for mesh topics
- Accreditation will be determined at the discretion of the mesh organizing committee based on the above criteria. The mesh organizing committee reserves the right to limit accreditation to applicants who best demonstrate they meet the criteria listed above.
- At its own discretion, mesh reserves the right to allow limited, temporary access to members of the media during the event itself. This is designed to allow those who do not have full accreditation to interview speakers or attend seminars so they can cover the event.
- If an applicant would like to guarantee access, all members of the media not accredited are welcome to purchase a ticket while they’re still available.
