Media Credentials Application

Media credential requests for the 2021 National Farm Machinery Show (NFMS) and Championship Tractor Pull (CTP) are now being accepted. Due to the COVID-19 response plan, the number of media, types of access, and turnaround time for credentialing will be determined as we approach the show.

THESE CREDENTIALS ARE FOR WORKING PRESS ONLY.

MEDIA BADGE:
Although there is no admission charge for the National Farm Machinery Show, the media are required to wear the media badge to identify them as working press. Media credentials are required to enter the Official National Farm Machinery Show Media Room. During the Tractor Pulls, a separate media badge will give WORKING PRESS ONLY admission and access to a special press area located on the floor near the track finish line. Only ONE CTP media badge and up to two CTP tickets will be issued per media outlet. If you are approved for access to this area, you will need to sign a Release Form in the Communications Department. Limited seating is available. Please be mindful of your space and time in this area to allow other members of the working press access also.

THE MEDIA BADGE IS NOT TRANSFERABLE. PERSONS USING THIS BADGE MAY BE ASKED TO SHOW ADDITIONAL IDENTIFICATION. ANY UNAUTHORIZED PERSONS IN THE TRACTOR PULL PRESS AREA WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE. ANY MEDIA BADGES IN THEIR POSSESSION WILL BE CONFISCATED.

PARKING:
The parking ticket is good for parking fees at the Kentucky Exposition Center during the 2021 NFMS. This ticket is PER VEHICLE and will be mailed upon request. Media badges will be used at the gates for parking fees for the remainder of your visit to the NFMS/CTP. There is NO reserved area for Media parking.
