The Classic Auto Show welcomes media outlets from across the U.S. and is happy to provide approved members of the media with a complimentary Press Pass. Press credentials are provided to media with an established history of writing or producing automobile-related stories, or coverage that promotes the show, such as advance features, inclusion in “things to do” round-up stories or tle like. Please understand that:

Your Press Pass allows access as long as space is permitting.

Your Press Pass does not allow early access, special access, or guaranteed seating.

Your Press Pass does not allow you to cut lines.

It is our expectation that any media granted press passes cover the show and send us a link to their coverage.

Press Registration is open to journalists making regular editorial contributions only. Editorial Press includes Writers, Reporters, Reviewers, Producers, Photographers, Cameramen, etc. who are attending specifically to write about The Classic Auto Show and/or cover the event for newspapers, magazines, TV, podcasts, radio, online content, vlogs, blogs, etc. Non-Editorial personnel at media companies such as Marketing and Sales staff do not qualify for Press Passes and should purchase an attendee ticket. Non-Editorial applications for Press Passes will not be approved.

It is our preference that your coverage of the Classic Auto Show post or run in advance of the conclusion of the show. 

Press Passes are issued individually and are non-transferable. You may not transfer or sell your Press Pass, and any individuals conducting such behavior will be disqualified from Press Passes at future Classic Auto Show events.

After reading this page, please fill out the online form below. Complete the form in its entirety. After the Classic Auto Show receives your application, our press office will respond within a week. Please understand that simply submitting this form does not guarantee you a press pass. It is only after this full form is received, reviewed, and approved that a press pass will be issued. Incomplete applications will not be approved.

Online Press Registration will close at 11:59 PM PST on March 14th, 2019. Applications will be reviewed within one week of submission. 

Answer every question as completely as you can. There are limited press passes available, which will be distributed across print, radio, television, and websites, blogs, and podcasts. Decisions Are Final.

The Classic Auto Show reserves the right to approve or deny any application. This decision is final and cannot be appealed. Be sure to include as much information as possible so that the Classic Auto Show can make an informed decision, as you won’t be able to submit further information later on if your application is not approved. We reserve the right to revoke credentials for any reason. 

Multiple Passes: 
If you intend to come to the Classic Auto Show with a crew (photographer, cameramen, etc.), each member of this team must complete an application. The Classic Auto Show reserves the right to limit the number of Press Passes provided to any organization.
