Media Registration Process

Members of the working media wishing to attend and cover any part of the 2023 Senior Care Marketing & Sales Summit must be registered attendees of the meeting. There is no charge for credentialed media to attend, but note that you or your organization are responsible for hotel reservations and travel arrangements (these are not included with registration) and these should be arranged in advance.

How to Apply for a Press Badge
To apply for a press badge, members of the media should be prepared to provide the following no later than two weeks prior to the event:

  • Photo identification (such as a driver’s license or passport)

  • Media identification certifying that you are a working member of a recognized print, broadcast, or online media organization (such as a business card, accredited press pass, or an official media outlet-issued credential)

  • An assignment letter from an editor, assistant editor, assignment editor, or designated organization official confirming that the media member will be representing the organization and explaining the intended use of the resulting coverage. (Bloggers may submit an overview of their blog and explain the intended use of the resulting coverage in lieu of an assignment letter.)

Prior to applying, please review the SMASH Press Policies and Procedures.


Once your application has been reviewed, you will receive confirmation of its approval or denial via email. If approved, you will also receive registration confirmation.

Media credentials will be available for pickup on-site at the SMASH registration booth.
