The Society for Information Display reserves the right to limit registration to no more than two persons from the same news or media outlet, or market research organization. Media credentials will not be granted to the following: CEOs, VPs, financial analysts, managers, sales executives, account representatives, PR representatives, publicists, marketing directors, administrators, consultants, authors, or researchers; or anyone whose principle purpose in attending this event is, in our judgment, for reasons other than gathering details, interviews, and/or photos for a news report or feature story.
A history of being registered at previous SID events does not guarantee approval or waive the accreditation requirement. Misconduct or misrepresentation of position and/or publication/media/analyst/research organization will bar you and your organization from all future SID events. We reserve the right to modify this policy without public notice or revoke previously issued SID accreditation and/or event registration at any time.
