Press Accreditation

Each year we invite industry journalists to join us at the Festival and we welcome media from all across MENA 

Dubai Lynx press accreditation is strictly reserved for editorial team members (editors, journalists, reporters, photographers, broadcasters) and full-time freelancers (with evidence of at least six months experience with the publication). 

Other professionals (including publishers, advertising, marketing, sales or PR personnel, researchers, analysts, agency or client staff etc.) must register as a delegate. 

Please note: speculative assignments or applications made by individuals already employed in the industry will not be considered.
