How do I register for a Student pass?

For IBC2021 there are no student passes. If you would like to register for the event, please register as a visitor and you will have full access to the exhibition halls, theatres and online content. 

How do I apply for a Press pass?

All applicants for press accreditation have to verify their media status each year and IBC requires that you are reporting on or from the show to the wider global audience. Many broadcast organisations and government channels issue their employees with press cards. However, holding a press card does not automatically entitle the bearer to press accreditation for IBC2021.  

Once you have completed your online registration your eligibility will be verified and you will receive a confirmation email. If you have any queries, please contact the Press Team at press@ibc.org.   

How do I register as an Exhibitor?

Please speak to your Exhibitor Co-ordinator to invite you to register for your exhibitor pass. You will receive an email from your Exhibitor Co-Ordinator inviting you to complete your registration. Please note the invitation email does not confirm you are registered; you will need to use the link within the email to complete and confirm your registration. A standard conference or exhibition visitor pass will not grant you the correct access. IBC Digital Exhibitors must register all staff.

All exhibitor registrations must be processed through the Exhibitor Registration Console (ERC) details on how to access the platform for registrations would have been sent to your company's Exhibitor Co-ordinator.
