This site serves as a tool to prepare members of the media for the 49th anniversary of ALC September 11-15, 2019 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
During ALC, more than 10,000 people attend 100 public policy forums, a national town hall, networking sessions, procurement fair, prayer breakfast, the Phoenix Award Dinner and much more. Credentialed media will have daily access to the conference. The CBCF will host a press operations room each day of the conference with media information and resources, free Wi-Fi, computers and work stations and light refreshments.
The Media Room will be located in rooms 203A and B at the Walter Washington Convention Center.
Official media will receive a 2019 ALC general press badge upon check-in at the media registration kiosk in the main lobby of the Convention Center.
In order to receive your badge, you must verify that you are currently employed by a news organization or a recognized (network, cable, independent) news organization.
Broadcast and radio reporters: Provide an original letter of assignment on the organization’s letterhead.
Freelancers: Submit a letter of assignment on company letterhead with the name, email and telephone number of the assignment editor.
Online/Bloggers/New Media publishers: The website must provide original, editorial news coverage. Personal web sites do not qualify for press registration.
Media with official badges may cover all events that are open to the general public; Issue Forums, Braintrusts, Town Hall Meeting and the Exhibit Hall. However, ticketed and exclusive events require separate credentialing. Please note: The CBCF will provide separate notifications about media credentialed to cover ticketed events, such as Celebration of Leadership in the Fine Arts, Phoenix Awards Dinner and the Annual Prayer Breakfast.
ALC Media Studio is the place where media will corral celebrities, corporate sponsors and politicians on the red carpet who make their rounds primarily but also to share their views on every nook and cranny of America. A list of all Media Row partners will be posted here when available.
