Default Press Passes...

I don't know if this belongs here or not, so feel free to move it (just tell me so I know where to look).

I go to the New York Auto show every year. I am curious to see if M|U could get press passses so I can get up close and personal with the cars and take some crazy photos.

This is just an idea, so let me know what you guys think...

Definitely would be nice!

Every year I always get the "Black tie" event tickets ($200 a piece) for the Pittsburgh's International Auto Show, but it's not the same as Detroits. The tickets are great though, cause there's only so many people invited and the cars aren't roped off... plus a ton of hot broads in evening gowns!

I covered the chicago auto show as press one year... getting press passes is extremely difficult.. and in some cases very expensive. typically also need proof of publication and etc.

I wish the Washington DC auto show wasn't cr@p. I still go every year, and every year I am disappointed.

I go to the LA Auto Show multiple times during it's stint here. I prefer the crowds, I'm weird I guess...

I would imagine M|U might need an incorporation of some sort and a publication such as MotoringFile. We could probably get one started - I mean we have the "viewership"

I wouldn't know where to start, but you might want to talk to the Javitz Convention Company that handles the NY Auto Show and see what they would need..

You just have to register... but then there are fees I belive... obviously if you are big enough they are free... or the corperation you work for has taken care of it... etc etc..

I've had a few press passes over the last few years for different events

The best way to get one would be to get in touch with the PR company who deals with the event..


Proof of publication is easy...

"Your freelance and your work will be shown to newspapers and magazines at the right price"

its not failed me yet...
