Important update about our 2020 conventions

In light of public health guidance on COVID-19 and large events in our state, CDA has made the difficult decision to cancel our San Francisco convention that was scheduled for September. All exhibitor booth fees are being refunded, and CDA is working to provide members innovative C.E. in exciting new ways.

CDA Presents Press Guidelines

All media representatives must provide identification before receiving a press badge (e.g., business card and published samples of editorial/news work). Please request in advance to avoid delays at on-site registration.

  • CDA limits the number of press badges issued to each media organization to three (3). Eligible registrants can purchase additional press badges for $50.  
  • CDA considers working press to be editorial staff of newspapers, magazines, medical and health care publications, broadcast outlets or web-based media.
  • A press badge allows media to be on the Exhibit Hall floor and attend lectures and workshops. It must be worn at all times.
  • Ticketholders have priority for seating in all lectures and workshops.
  • CDA media staff must escort broadcast media registrants to their intended interview on site.
  • Exhibitors are not CDA spokespersons and should not be identified as such in an interview.
  • Exhibitors who wish to distribute materials for the media may do so only at their booths.
  • Any press registrant who sells, markets or represents a company for the purpose of obtaining advertising or subscriptions from any registrant or exhibitor immediately forfeits press credentials.
  • Press registrants must obtain permission to photograph and/or video record attendees or exhibitors interviewed or otherwise identifiable in images.
