MEDIA ACCREDITATION

CNE

CNE 2017

As the PR firm for the 139th annual Canadian National Exhibition, Holmes PR (HPR) would like to thank you for your interest in credential status for the 2017 season. The CNE welcomes hundreds of journalists each year, and we value your support of the Fair.

TO REQUEST CREDENTIALS

All accreditation requests must be submitted via this online application – no exceptions.

All media accreditation passes will be distributed electronically. In an effort to reduce paper waste, the CNE will not be distributing paper tickets by mail or for pick-up. CNE media passes will be issued via e-mail in the form of an electronic barcode and available for scanning on a mobile device, or you have the option to print and show at the Manitoba Gate (located near Strachan Ave. & Fleet St.).

DEADLINE TO APPLY

The deadline to apply for media credentials is Friday, August 25th. The online form will not be available past the deadline date. Media will be notified of their credential status via email beginning Tuesday, August 8th.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
