Press accreditation

The form for requesting a press badge will be opened from June 2017.
For any enquiry to cover the show, please contact Johan Pizzardini on , Communications & media Manager.
Thanks for your comprehension.


The press service issues press accreditation to media representatives only. The number of accreditations per media is attributed according to the represented profession (journalist, photographer, media technician), the frequency of the media, the importance (circulation, audience), the nautical specialisation and the expected coverage the Monaco Yacht Show will receive. Monaco Yacht Show's press service can grant special accreditation to media professionals who come to cover, for editorial purposes, the exhibition, exhibitors, sponsors and partners.

A press badge may be granted to the following media professionals upon presentation of an official document:
› Journalist (chief editor, independent journalist, press, web, radio or TV reporter),
› Photographer (for a press agency or a media identified during the badge request),
› Technicians (TV crews…),
› Blogger: only one representative per blog is authorised.

Sales and marketing media representatives (advertising manager, sales agent, marketing or communications manager...) cannot benefit from accreditation and must request a professional visitor badge.

The press badge is nominative and provides access to the show from 10am to 6.30pm from Wednesday 27th to Saturday 30th September 2017. On Thursday 28th September access will granted from 9am to assist in scheduled press conferences prior to the exhibition's opening. The media should present their badge and the special invitation they have been given by an exhibitor inviting them to a particular press conference.

SPECIAL CASES: should you represent several media, please specify the particular media for which you are requesting accreditation. If you have several functions (journalist, photographer...), please specify your main function (double accreditations will not be granted). .
