Press registration is complimentary and includes all privileges of regular registration. Members of the press who qualify for press registration and who have not pre-registered may use the onsite registration at the congress venue. Only accredited journalists or reporters, writers or editors with credentials from a newspaper, magazine, radio or TV station, wire service, syndicate or other news organization may register and receive a press badge. Freelancers must present proof from a news organization that assigned them to cover the meeting. Freelancers wishing to cover ECCMID on a speculative basis are asked to request accreditation in writing using their letterhead.
The press centre with PC workstations (internet connected), printer and telephone will be located straight ahead from the main entrance on your left. You will find more detail on timing and location of the official ECCMID media conference in the press kit. ABBIT Meeting Support will operate a television channel for the congress, which will feature interviews with participants, speakers and institutions.
Press Kit and Embargo Policy
A press kit will be available for all registered journalists. Journalists wishing to have information about the press kit in advance of the congress should contact the ECCMID press agency. Please respect the 25 April 2015 00:01 GMT embargo for press releases and abstracts you will receive in the press kit. For other press releases individual embargoes may apply. The abstracts of the congress will be available 10 days before the congress starts and will be accessible online on the ECCMID website: www.eccmid.org
Information for ECCMID Sponsors
Companies or NGOs wishing to hold a press conference at the ECCMID should contact Nora Nedkov at firstname.lastname@example.org for all issues concerning the renting of a press conference room. Press releases may be displayed in the press room if the organisation or individual responsible for the content is clearly stated on the document. Distribution boxes must be physically separated from the respective boxes for official ESCMID/ECCMID press releases. If you are acting on behalf of an official ECCMID sponsor and wish to receive a list of registered journalists to the Congress, please contact the ECCMID press agency.
