Media

I am a member of the media and would like to cover Dwell on Design. How do I sign up to get a Press Pass?

Members of the media are invited to request a Press Pass via email. Once approved, you may use your Press Comp Code to register online

When will you mail me my Media Pass?
We will not mail you a Media Pass. Please check-in at the Press/Media desk to collect your Press Pass when you arrive at Dwell on Design NY on the basement level of 82Mercer. 
The Press Pass includes:
- Access to all installations 82Mercer, which cover over 35,000 square feet
- Access to panels and discussions  
How do I secure interviews with on-stage presenters?

Once you are confirmed as media, you will receive media alerts and follow-up e-mails with show highlights. If there is a specific presenter you would like to interview, please email Whitney Christopher, whitney@dwell.com, for assistance. 

May I bring a camera crew to Dwell on Design?

We welcome broadcast media at Dwell on Design. We will need each member of your crew (photographers, cameramen, etc.) to register separately for their Media Passes. If there are three people in your group, you will need three Media Passes. Please contact us directly to coordinate.

Exhibitors and PR Reps

My company/client is exhibiting at Dwell on Design. Will there be a pressroom where I can place press kits?
Yes, we can hold materials for distribution at Press Registration.  Exhibitors and PR reps may also hold press materials at their respective booths and have them ready to hand directly to media. There will also be space in the VIP Lounge where exhibitors can place their press materials.
 
In the interest of reducing waste, please consider creating electronic press kits.  Please do not send press materials to 82Mercer in advance of the show. 
How many press kits should I bring?

This is entirely up to your company’s discretion. Dwell on Design expects to welcome 25,000 visitors this year, including hundreds of media. Please plan accordingly but keep in mind that most media do not want to walk the show floor weighed down by press kits.

My company/client has an electronic press kit. Where may I upload this information and what should I include?

We no longer host electronic press kits. When company/client submit their electronic Exhibitor Directory Form they should list their respective Press/Media contact. Interested reporters who are scouting will have access to the Press/Media contact information to reach out to to see what brand will be showing at Dwell on Design 2014.

I have scheduled interviews with the media, where will these be held?

These will be held inside the VIP Lounge, the café or in one of the discussion pits.

Can you send me the list of media who have signed up to attend Dwell on Design NY 2014?

As a general policy, we do not share individual press contacts from the media list; however, we can send you a list of outlets who will have a presence at the show this year, and encourage you to reach out to your contacts at those respective publications.
