Media Representatives

Registration and Media Credentials

The EDUCAUSE Annual Conference brings together IT leaders and professionals in higher education, corporations who offer products and services to this community, and members of the media who cover issues and trends in higher education and information technology.

Complimentary registration for EDUCAUSE 2014 is available for working credentialed editorial press, broadcast reporters, active freelancers, and established bloggers covering the event for their respective news outlets. All requests for complimentary media registration are subject to review and approval by EDUCAUSE 2014 communications staff.

Please note: only two complimentary registrations per publication/organization are available. PR, sales and marketing representatives are not eligible for complimentary registration or media credentials. Complimentary registration covers only the conference proper and does not include preconference seminars, which have separate registration fees.

Media Lounge

A dedicated room will be available for credentialed media to meet and conduct interviews, write and file stories and charge their devices. As a shared workspace, the room may not be formally reserved and we ask that you treat the room and others in the room with common courtesy.

Media representatives may use the Media Lounge for interviews, but please note that conference attendees without media credentials must be accompanied by a credentialed media representative at all times.

Exhibitor PR representatives may bring print press kits to the Media Lounge and periodically refresh their stack of materials. However, we cannot store or accept delivery of materials in the room.

Video Recording Studio

The media lounge is equipped with a small studio set-up for video recording during the hours the media lounge is open. The studio is available for use by members of the media as well as other organizations and individuals wishing to record video interviews, as it is available.

The studio is set up “interview style” with 2 chairs, 10’ velour pipe and drape and 3 pt. light kit. Users must provide their own camera and sound equipment.

If you would like to use the studio, you must make a reservation in advance by emailing the EDUCAUSE communications team at

Audio and Video Recording Guidelines

For those media personnel who have not been engaged by EDUCAUSE, the following recording guidelines have been put in place to ensure participants have a positive conference experience.

  • No recording for commercial purposes is allowed at the conference at any time whatsoever without prior permission from EDUCAUSE as well as the speaker(s) if relevant.
  • Presentations and associated materials are the intellectual property of the presenter; no conference session or activity may be recorded in any medium without presenter permission.
  • Regardless of whether presenter permission has been secured, EDUCAUSE reserves the right to ask any attendee to move within or leave a session venue if their use of technology is disruptive to speakers or other attendees.
  • Equipment and/or participant interviewing is prohibited in common walkways and public spaces if it impedes conference “traffic flow”. EDUCAUSE staff will determine whether recording equipment or activity is impeding conference traffic. Failure to abide by EDUCAUSE staff decisions on the need to relocate or cease activity may result in expulsion from the conference.
  • Exhibit hall recording is only allowed by an exhibiting company (or its designated representatives) within its own booth space. No recording is allowed within walk ways or shared locations of the greater exhibit hall.
