How do I register as media for Sweets & Snacks Expo?

Can I attend Sweets & Snacks Expo if I'm a print or video blogger or other digital media person?

What if I am in public relations, marketing or advertising?
Media badges are for “working media” who are covering the show for a recognized media outlet. Individuals in public relations, marketing or advertising must register for an attendee badge.
Are unique email addresses required for every registrant?
Sweets & Snacks Expo requires individual unique email addresses for attendees, exhibiting personnel and media. This allows each Sweets & Snacks Expo badge holder to utilize and customize the online show planner and the show's mobile app and receive timely Sweets & Snacks communications. The use of unique email addresses also will help us to identify non-qualified attendees.
