Before you register in the Media-Editorial category, please read the important information below about the media registration fee for 2017

Registration Fee for the Media-Editorial Badge

ICAST offers unparalleled access to manufacturers and their products along with business seminars and networking opportunities that you won’t find anywhere else. However, we have seen an increase in non-professional media registering for the show in the Media-Editorial category. In 2015, our board of directors established a badge fee for the Media-Editorial category.

First and foremost, we invite all media representatives to attend ICAST. Your coverage of the new tackle introduced at the show is extremely important to the recreational fishing industry.

We will do all we can to accommodate your needs to help ensure that you have a productive show experience.

We are confident that media outlets will find much more value in the content of the trade show than the price of a show badge.

The Media-Editorial Badge

The Media-Editorial badge fee is $100. The onsite fee is $150.

Media-Editorial badges for ASA’s media members and their employees are complimentary.

Media-Editorial badges are also complimentary for current members of bona fide outdoor media professional organizations on the state, regional and national levels.

For more information about the registration fee, please email ASAComm@asafishing.org.

To inquire about membership, please email joinnow@asafishing.org.

Obtaining Media Credentials

Media credentials are issued to media representatives whose purpose is to write about the show, products and other ICAST-related events.

Marketing, public relations and advertising representatives do not qualify for press credentials. See the Media-Sales badge below. All Media-Editorial registrants are subject to verification by ASA staff.

Two-Step Registration Process for Obtaining Your Media Credentials

Step 1 – Please complete the ICAST Media Credentials Guidelines and application form, and submit your form with the requested supporting documentation by June 9, 2017.

Step 2Register for your Media Editorial badge. Everyone who wants to attend ICAST must register for a badge. In addition, registering for your badge also allows you to book housing at one of the official ICAST hotels. You will not be able to get housing in the ICAST block unless you register first. Please note, housing is also contingent on ASA approval of your badge, so please see Step 1.

The Media-Sales Badge

If a media representative is from a media source (newspaper, magazine, broadcast, dot.com) but is in advertising sales, then he or she falls under the Media–Sales category and must register in that category and pay the respective member or non-member registration fee in order to attend ICAST.

The Media Sales badge also applies to marketing, public relations and sponsorship development.

Onsite Media Registration

You can provide credentials onsite, however, entrance is not guaranteed. Online registration and prior approval is to your advantage.
