‘Press’ can be journalists, reporters, correspondents, editors, writers, associated technicians (for recording equipment) or freelance journalists working for/commissioned by recognised or mainstream magazines, journals, newspapers, news agencies, news wire services, broadcast media (radio or television), websites, newsletters or blogs that consistently publish editorial news coverage, provided they are widely accessible with complete editorial independence and freedom from sponsors/advertisers
A maximum of three representatives can attend per media outlet.
Press registration will not be granted to representatives of public relations companies, advertising agencies, marketing companies, pharmaceutical companies, or commercial e-learning platforms.
The ERS press office reserves the right to withhold approval of press registration if the applicant and/or the outlet do not satisfy the criteria for press registration or if the media registration form is sent without the requested supporting documents.
The ERS press office also reserves the right to ban any person (from a current or future meeting) who provides false information about their affiliation or credentials.
The decision of the ERS press office is final regarding all press registration requests.
