Press Registration

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.
