How to collect your accreditation

Upon completing the accreditation form and receiving notification of your accreditation, you can collect your accreditation pass from the Media Centre between 2pm and 5pm on Monday, 26 th April or during the centre’s hours outlined above.

Please note that media representatives arriving without prior accreditation will be required to register at the Media Centre immediately upon arrival. All unaccredited members of the media including film crew will be required to show photo identification upon registering. Please allow extra time for this process. Entry to the sessions and the media centre’s facilities will not be permissible until this process is completed.

It is therefore advisable that media register for accreditation before the conference commences.
