Collecting your Accreditations

Accreditations can be obtained only at the Hotel Novotel by presenting official identification. A person can obtain accreditations for various people from their respective organisations by bringing the following:
  • A list of those accredited on official stationary of your organisation (names/passport or DNI numbers)
  • An official press card

Security Check

Security personnel at the Palacio Municipal de Congresos will examine and may test equipment carried into the building. To avoid delays, the media is advised to arrive with time to clear security checks.

Television and radio, that have extensive or bulky equipment, are strongly advised to move as much as possible into the Media area before covering an event, to shorten check-in times.

Note to editors: all crews covering event must be accredited.
The Summit organizers, as well as security personnel, reserve the right to withdraw media accreditation at any time.
