Montreat Conference Center

Media Resources

Press & Media

When you are planning to cover a Montreat conference on behalf of a legitimate publication or other media outlet, you will be asked to register as an official “conferee.” To expedite your registration, please contact the Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Communications, Tanner Pickett, to notify him of your interest in reporting on the conference. Please tell him the name of the publication, station or other media outlet for which you will be acting as a representative, and, upon arrival at the conference center, show the appropriate credentials. You will then be given a media pass (press badge) that we ask you to wear to help our employees identify you.

  • Conference registration fees are waived for all official media representatives. Cost of room, board, and transportation are the responsibility of the media representative.
  • All plenary, workshop, worship, and entertainment events associated with our conferences are open to media coverage. For coverage of individual workshops, we would ask you as an observer to display both sensitivity and discretion, as individuals may be grappling with issues of a personal nature. Any stories or quotes emerging from a workshop experience must be given prior approval by the speaker and the Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Communications before release. For coverage of worship services, no flash photography is permitted. Permission for videotaping of worship services (without additional lighting) is at the discretion of the Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Communications.

Please visit our Press Room for more specific information about Montreat Conference Center, other entities in the valley and other helpful resources.
