    b. Where possible, a member of the EAS EC will attend company press briefings​

    c. Content of any company press briefing should be approved by the congress press officer

    i. Press releases by companies must be submitted to Kenes not later than 21 days before the beginning

    and the EAS EC​

    j. Embargo policy: companies may not hold press briefings, make an announcement, or place a press
     prior to the discussion of the relevant topic/product in a satellite symposium and/or oral
       or poster session.
    See full policy at the end of this document.​​

  4. Press attendance at company sessions: requests by members of the press to attend company-organized Educational Symposia should be made in writing to both the company and the EAS EC,
    at least 14 days ahead of the Congress.​

  5. Video recording of sessions/presentations: EAS owns all rights to presentations at Congress. Requests to record any presentation, either fully or in part, or any other event in the Congress program should be made formally, in writing, to the EAS EC (and, if the presentation is part of an industry-sponsored session, to the company concerned), at least 14 days ahead of Congress.


Results and information related to a session at the EAS Congress, cannot be presented or announced prior to presentation in the session or press conference, whichever comes first, unless otherwise instructed. 

Any press and media representatives intending to attend the EAS Congress must accept this embargo policy or will not be provided with a press badge.

Breaking of the embargo policy by a reporter leads to:​

  • Immediate suspension of the reporter’s media credentials
  • Immediate barring of the reporter from the meeting premises​
  • Removal of reporters name from the EAS Press distribution list for 1 year​
  • Media outlets that employ the reporter or who hired the freelancer to write for them will be barred from accessing next year’s EAS Congress​​

Breaking of an embargo by another (non-media) party will equally be pursued. 

Industry officials and their communication agents are not eligible for press registration
