Press Registration for Anime Milwaukee 2018
Welcome respective medias and publishers to another exciting year at Anime Milwaukee!

This is the 11th year of Anime Milwaukee (AMKE), and we are proud to be providing the Milwaukee area with entertainment geared towards the anime and gaming communities. Last year we had over 9,500 attendees join us. AMKE is a three (3) day convention that operates at the Hyatt Regency Hotel and Wisconsin Convention Center in Milwaukee.

Press access for Anime Milwaukee is a powerful tool, so, in order to prevent press passes from misuse, we limit the amount of badges any single publication may have, unless prior appropriate justifications are made with the Press Department Manager.

As we here at Anime Milwaukee issue press passes to respected members of the media free of charge, there will be follow-ups with each organization to assure we’re receiving an equal trade in valued publicity for your free admission to our event.

Upon of approval, confirmed medias will be published on our Press Page of the website.

Are you interested in helping us push our event on your respected medias? Let your audiences know that you’ll be here.

Social media 'pages' or 'groups' are not recognized by Anime Milwaukee as a primary outlet for reporting of our event. Your publication must be one of the accepted media types on our form, it is acceptable if your publication uses social medias to advance circulation of your reports.

Manditory Press Sessions
As a perk to attending as members of the media, we offer a unique opportunity for exclusive guest press sessions only available to members of the press!

Press Sessions will be held Saturday and Sunday in the Press Room.

Each publication will be required to sign up for and attend a minimum of two (2) Press Sessions, however there is no limit as to how many sessions you can attend. Failure to register and/or attend these sessions will put you and your publication in bad standing with our department and potentially the convention as a whole.

We ask that you be kind, courteous and respectful to our guests, staff and other members of the media during these sessions.

Quality Control & Follow-ups
Press department staff will be performing post-convention follow-ups with all attending publications. Staff will review all convention reporting to determine that services or coverage provided was performed in equal to or access of the cost of convention badge(s) to Anime Milwaukee. Number of badges per publication will be a factor in the assessment. Those who have been determined as providing insufficient coverage will either have to meet additional criteria or be denied press access in future years.

We value fair and constructive criticisms of our event. We do not sensor appropriate, accurate reports of our event, however, we do ask that you do your best to keep the views of our event in a positive light. The reason that Press access remains free at our event is for the purposes of a trade in promotion of our event. Negatively bias coverage of our event may result in denial of press access to our event in future years.

Online publications will be shared on our website as well as our Social Medias as our "thank you" for your coverage, we hope that you gain some more followers.

We welcome any donations of any raw photos and videos for archiving and marketing purposes. In the event that materials are used from a publication, then that publication will be appropriately accredited.
