Press Criteria

Please carefully read the criteria before applying for press registration.

  • Complimentary press registration is available only to members of the working press who are writing articles or producing a broadcast coverage about OTC (examples: reporter, editor, publisher, photojournalist, freelance writer*, etc.).
  • Titles that will not be eligible include PR or marketing representative, account executive, corporate media relations staff, advertising sales, president, CEO, and other non-editorial roles.
  • Journalists must be employed by a news organization that covers the energy industry. 
  • To ensure a secure conference, government-issued photo identification is required in addition to press credentials from a media outlet. 


* Freelance writers must have a documented assignment from a specific news organization to receive press registration. Freelancers are required to provide proof of at least two bylined articles written within the past year for an assigned news organization that covers the oil and gas industry. You will be contacted by OTC for this documentation.

Photography and Audio/Video Recording

No audio recording, video recording, or photography is allowed without OTC's permission. All journalists seeking to do any of these things must register as press and check-in at the OTC press room. Download the Limited Video/Audio Recording/Photographs Form here. OTC staff will upload daily photos from the conference by the end of day, when available. To access the photos click here.
