Press Registration

The EAU17 Congress is open to bona fide representatives of print and electronic media. The EAU is happy to offer discretionary free of charge registration to journalists who work at a news organisation that features original, editorial news coverage, that has editorial freedom from advertisers and/or sponsors, and in which advertisers and/or sponsors are clearly identified as such.

In order to be accredited for the Congress, media representatives are expected to actively reporting on the 32nd Annual EAU Congress.

Eligibility

To be eligible for free press registration, applicants must write exclusively for the news organisation and provide the following materials for verification:

  1. Letter verifying assignment to the 32nd Annual EAU Congress on the letterhead of the news organisation being represented.
  2. Two bylined medical/health/science articles/videos/reports published within the last year, coverage from the previous year’s meeting (if applicable), and a copy of the publication.
  3. Media identification such as an international, accredited press pass or an official media-outlet-issued credential, dated 2017-2018.

Note
Representatives of publishing houses, the business side of news media, and for-profit corporations, will not be accredited as press and will not be eligible for complimentary press registration. Editors of journals or other publications who do not report for or edit their outlet’s news section will also not be accredited as press and are not eligible for free press registration. If in doubt, please ask the EAU Press Office in advance.

How to register

To apply for a press accreditation for EAU17 you can register via the online registration system. Online registration is open until 6 March 2017. After this date you will be able to register onsite at the ExCeL in London.

To complete online registration and to speed up the accreditation process, all applications should be accompanied by the required documents as listed under eligibility for verification. You can email the documents to the registration department.

Media registration in advance is strongly recommended. This enables us to deal with any queries or problems in advance. Journalists should confirm eligibility for media registration before making travel arrangements.
