Accreditation of the press:

"The accreditation process to the Forum is now closed. Due to capacity and security limitations we are not able to give more press accreditations. You can follow the Forum live on Thank you for your understanding."

Press conferences, briefings and interviews with speakers and participants are organised only for accredited journalists.



For the convenience of the accredited journalists, our GLOBSEC Media Centre will be at disposal on the premises of the Grand Hotel River Park Bratislava. The following equipment will be available for your use in the GLOBSEC Media Centre:

Listening area and livestreaming of the conference

Working tables

Internet Connection (wireless Internet connection will be provided on the premises of the Grand Hotel and the Media Centre)

Limited number of access points for cameras and audio signals (upon request)

Headphones for interpretation

Please note that the Media Centre will NOT provide any personal computers, telephones, tablets or any other devices or accessories.



Please note that media representatives do not have access to some areas of the Grand Hotel, especially into the main conference room (Maria Theresia Ballroom), which is primarily reserved for speakers and other participants due to capacity reasons. 

Therefore, for the comfort of all media representatives, the GLOBSEC Media Centre and additional listening areas and live streaming at the Grand Hotel, including cafeterias, restaurants and lobby, will be at disposal.



Photo shooting of the main conference programme will be permitted only 10 minutes before the start of the panel/session/debate and in times organisers assigned for these purposes. Please note that media interested in photo/video shooting in the Main Conference Room before the following sessions/panels/debates are requested to meet 15 minutes before the panel at the Media Registration and Information Desk. They will be accompanied by the organisers from the Media Team to the Main Conference Room and then, immediately after the start of the session, requested to leave the room.

The panels will be specified shortly and provided to the media in their welcome package.



You will be informed in advance about the time and place of your interviews arranged according to your preferences. Our Media Team will assist you with the coordination of your pre-arranged interviews directly on the ground.

The meeting point for all journalists before the interviews is the Media Registration and Information Desk. Please make sure to come to the meeting point 10 minutes before your scheduled interview. A member of the Media Team will be waiting for you and will accompany you to the speaker/guest.



In case you have booked accommodation in one of our partner hotels, please note that accommodated guests are fully responsible for fees related to the cancellation of their accommodation or no-show. Please note that the organisers are not responsible for the check-in and check-out policy of the partner hotels, therefore cannot guarantee neither early check-in nor late check-out.
