Press Registration

Press registration is complimentary and applies only to the congress registration. The press registration does not include the congress bag or public transportation. Members of the press who qualify for press registration and who have not pre-registered yet, are required to seek the registration helpdesk in the registration area at the congress venue. Waiting times might occur as Tony Kirby will be contacted by the registration team to review your request in person. We therefore advise to pre-register before. 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 ESCMID Global (formerly known as ECCMID) on a speculative basis are asked to request accreditation in writing using their letterhead.


Press registration signup can be found here.
