PROCESS OF MEDIA ACCREDITATION
Media accreditation is reserved exclusively for active members of the media, including editors, reporters, producers, camera crews, and podcasters. ViVE reserves the right to decline a media pass if the applicant fails to provide sufficient credentials.
ViVE reserves the right to modify this policy without public notice and retains the ability to revoke previously issued ViVE media accreditation/registration at its discretion.
Previous registration at other ViVE or HLTH events does not guarantee approval and does not exempt individuals from the accreditation requirement.
If you do not meet the criteria for accredited media in any of the aforementioned categories, it is advised not apply for a Media Pass. Instead, you should proceed to register as General Admission through the ViVE registration page.
