Press Information

To request a press pass for the Where 2.0 Conference 2007, please fill out the press registration form (login required). Press passes are limited, and are granted only to working journalists who intend to cover the event (see media and analyst required credentials below). The credentials you submit will be reviewed carefully, so please be as detailed as possible when filling out the form. Submitting links to recent articles or reports you have written is highly recommended. Press credential approval for a prior CMP or O'Reilly conference does not guarantee approval for this event. If your request for a press pass is approved, you will receive an email message from Sharon Cordesse, usually within a week.

A press pass entitles you to tutorial participation, entrance to conference sessions, and admission to all on-site social events. Private working facilities for the press will also be provided. You are responsible for your own travel and accommodation costs. For hotel and travel information, please visit our hotel information page. If you have special needs, please be sure to let us know your specific requirements at least four weeks before the conference begins.
