There is special registration for media, so register as early as possible to confirm the attendance of your publication (journalists’ names may be provided later).  A welcome pack will be organised for participating media, and press releases will be distributed about all of the conferences. Because of facility limitations, there will be joint press conferences, which hopefully can accommodate everyone. Media wanting to organise interviews with individual speakers need to let organizers know as soon as possible as there are limitations on private interview rooms.

To confirm your press registration, request any interviews and for any questions please contact:
