Media Registration


Required Credentials for a Media Pass

Please note: Media/analyst badges allow access to the Briefings, Keynote and Business Hall only.

Due to high demand, media badges for Black Hat Europe 2016 are limited in number and will be issued only to representatives from news outlets, major analyst firms and leading industry blogs. To qualify for a complimentary media pass, applicants must cover the information security industry on a regular basis and present bylined articles or reports published within the past six months. Publishers, marketing/PR professionals and other sales or C-level non-media titles will not be accepted.

Media passes will not be issued to photographers without formal commissioning from a news organization or those writing confidential content or content solicited by an exhibiting company. Private consultants paid by an individual company are not eligible for a media pass, and should request a pass from the sponsoring company. Media credentials granted for previous UBM events do not guarantee a media pass to Black Hat Europe – applications will be individually reviewed for each event.

On-Site Details

At the event, you will pick up your badge in the Media area of Main Registration.

You will be required to present a business card, government issued picture ID, and proof of confirmation. On occasion, for onsite applicants we will require articles on your organization's masthead and contact information for your assignment editor should we need it to validate your credentials before issuing you a media pass.

Pre-registration is strongly encouraged due to limited space. Should you attempt to attain credentials onsite, we cannot guarantee complimentary media admission.
