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 ECCMID on a speculative basis are asked to request accreditation in writing using their letterhead.
Press registration signup can be found here.
The press office comes equipped with electricity, Wi-Fi connection and a printer. Only persons holding a press registration badge may enter. The press office is located on the first floor in 8.1 and can be easily reached through the escalators in the registration area.
Press releases will be issued on sessions and abstracts of interest to the media. These will be issued several working days in advance wherever possible. They will include a mixture of sessions and both oral and poster abstracts.
The abstracts of the congress, not selected for press release, will be available 10 days before the congress starts at 00:01 on 17 April 2024 and will be accessible online on the ECCMID platform: online.eccmid.org
Access to the online platform will require a registration.
Press releases may be displayed in front of the press office 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.
