Press pass for CIRSE congresses

CIRSE issues three types of media badges for its congresses

  • Press badges for journalists
  • Photographing badges for photographers accompanying registered journalists
  • Filming badges

CIRSE congresses are open to representatives of print and electronic media who are directly involved in the creation of news content for media outlets. Anyone applying for a CIRSE press badge must register with the CIRSE communications department at [email protected], providing proof that they

  • are a journalist/reporter or freelance journalists for broadcast media (TV, radio), open newsletters, or publicly available scientific websites or blogs via a press pass
  • have bylined three articles published within the prior 24 months

Media badges for photographers

Journalists may receive an additional photographing badge for their supporting photographer. The need for a photographing pass must be indicated when first registering with the CIRSE communications office at [email protected].

Media badges for filming crews

Filming crews must obtain filming badges at least one week prior to a congress. Filming badges (max. 2 per media outlet) will be issued upon registering with [email protected] and paying the €1,000 handling fee.

If your film crew is attending the congress in order to gather footage exclusively of an industry partner booth, please register by sending your details to [email protected].

Please note that by registering for a CIRSE congress as a press representative, you are agreeing to the CIRSE media access terms and conditions.
