Cleveland Auto Show Media Credentials Policy:

Application may be made by working media, in the interest of covering the Cleveland Auto Show for public information purposes. The Cleveland Auto Show reserves the right to approve or deny access to media credentials for any reason in compliance with state and local laws. In the interest of security and to maintain adequate accommodations for show and Press Preview attendees, the Cleveland Auto Show requires qualified media and necessary support personnel to comply with this policy.

The Cleveland Auto Show reserves the right to remove persons from the show and may impose a forfeiture or reduction of your company’s press credentials for the balance of the Cleveland Auto Show if:

  • Credentials that have been requested for the people under your company name are not representatives or employees of your company.
  • Employees of your company escort people onto the show floor without following Cleveland Auto Show credentialing procedures.

The Cleveland Auto Show reserves the right to revoke issued media credentials at any time. Media credentials will not be granted to anyone whose principal purpose for attending the Cleveland Auto Show is, in our judgment, for reasons other than covering the event as working news media.
