EASL welcomes journalists to the RAI Amsterdam.

The International Liver CongressTM 2017 (ILC 2017) is open and free of charge to official representatives of print, broadcast and electronic media.

Journalists interested in attending must register via the online registration platform and upload a copy of their press card and/or the commissioning letter as part of their application.

Freelance journalists must present a commissioning letter on headed paper from a recognised news organisation or publication, outlining their reason for attendance.

You may be asked to provide further evidence of your credentials once your initial registration application is made. If this is the case, a member of the ILC Press Office will contact you to discuss what evidence is required.

Before proceeding to the online registration portal, please contact the ILC 2017 Press Office to receive your ‘media log-in’. You will be provided with a personalised code enabling you to complete your registration, book accommodation and sign-up to early morning workshops. The ILC Press Office will approve the credentials you will upload during the registration process.

Journalists must register online; applications for media registration made via pharmaceutical, marketing or public relations companies will not be considered.

Registration for ILC 2017 will only be given once your accreditation has been approved by the ILC Press Office and online registration is complete. Accredited journalists must collect their press pass on-site from the registration desk. The press pass will permit admission to the press centre.

Information regarding media registrations to The International Liver CongressTM 2017 belongs to EASL. EASL does not share media lists externally.

If you have not registered online prior to arrival in Amsterdam, you will need to register on-site at The International Liver CongressTM 2017 registration desk. Proof of media accreditation will be required together with a valid passport or ID-card. Media registration in advance is strongly recommended. This enables the ILC Press Office to deal with any queries or issues ahead of the congress. Only registered media representatives will be permitted to work in the media areas.

If additional proof of media credentials is requested, the ILC Press Office will advise on what additional evidence should be submitted.

Please note that business cards are NOT acceptable as a form of media credential.

The official language of The International Liver CongressTM 2017 is English. Simultaneous translation will not be provided.
