You, or the organization that you represent, must fulfill the listed requirements in order to be issued credentials. These credentials will give you special seating at Main Events, access to the Press Room, and the opportunity to request interview time with our special guests.
All requests will be verified by our team. Please include any analytics or information that could help us make a decision.

San Japan reserves the right to approve at the discretion of the Community Relations team. Decisions are made based on a variety of criteria including the amount of similar media outlets applying for access. The completion of this form does not guarantee placement at the convention. Any press accepted will be notified by email before the convention. We can not guarantee a timely response for those who have been rejected especially if the application is within 15 days prior to the convention. Frequently inquiring on the press approval status up to 15 days before the convention will be considered harassment and will have their applications denied. We will have all applications notified by August 20th, 2019..


Applications will be posted here by June 30th, 2019.
