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 (waiting time might occur). 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.
Media Lounge and Press Conference
The media lounge with PC workstations (internet connected), printer and office material will be located within the congress venue.Only persons holding a press-registration (badge) may enter. You will find more detail on timing and location of the official ECCMID media conference in the press kit.
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 and will be accessible online on the ECCMID website: www.eccmid.org
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.
