Hotel Access Policy

Beginning with IML 41 all those entering the hotel will need to be a registered guest or have a weekend or other type of access pass.  This change has been implemented in our host hotel to ensure our IML guests have not only a fun event but also a safe event.

For those staying at our host hotel, The Congress Plaza, a wristband will be provided at the time of check-in for free hotel access. This wristband will allow access to the hotel but does not include access to events being held at the hotel. 

A Weekend Access pass can be purchased onsite during the event or in advance as part of your IML event package purchase on Box Office Tickets.  This pass includes full hotel access including the Leather Market the entire weekend.   The Weekend Access pass is included with our Premier Access Package.

A Weekend Access pass may be added to our other ticket packages starting March 1st for $35.00 or will be available during IML for $40.00.

Single day access passes are not available for purchase in advance.  They will be available starting Friday, May 24th at the host hotel.   Weekend all access pass wristbands are available as an ala-carte add-on with Contest or Dance package via our ticketing website.  

Single day and evening passes will be available on-site during the event.  These are available for sale each day and are valid for that day and time period. 

  • Day passes for single day access will be available to purchase onsite. Day passes will allow access to the hotel and Leather Market up to 7pm daily.    IML ticketed events are not included.
  • Night passes for single evening access will be available onsite only for $10.00. Night passes will allow access to the hotel from 7pm to 3am.  IML ticketed events are not included.
