Press Credential Qualifications

Global Pet Expo provides press badges to qualified media to cover the Show, however, media professionals must be able to prove their credentials to qualify. You are strongly encouraged to pre-register. Press who attempt to register on-site may be turned away if proper credentials are not verified, and may miss out on important news leading up to the Show. If you submit credentials after March 1, 2018, please be prepared to show them on-site. All credential requests are subject to approval by show management. 

If you are not a credentialed journalist, please register as an Industry Visitor. For more information on Industry Visitor registration, contact
