By registering as a member of the press, each press representative confirms their understanding and adherence to these policies.

All media activities not explicitly mentioned below need to be negotiated at the earliest possible opportunity with the UEG Communications Agency, Spink.

  • Temporary press badges will be distributed at the main registration desk. Press members must then walk straight to the Press Centre to obtain their full press badge and press pack. Only journalists who present their press credentials on site will receive a press badge.
  • The press badge must be worn to gain access to all UEG Week scientific sessions.
