Mass media

Accreditation of mass media representatives is conducted for wide, free and recent coverage in mass media of Forum’s events as well as provision of necessary conditions for mass media representatives’ professional activities.

All mass media editors that are registered at the Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology, and Mass Media and overseas mass media editors registered according to its national legislation and The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation have the right to make an application to be accredited for the Forum.

During its professional activity mass media representatives must follow generally recognized ethical standards, respect rights and legitimate interests of Forum’s participants and personnel. Applications are conducted online via filling in the interactive form at the official website of the Forum by choosing “Registration” with obligatory mentioning of the word “Mass Media” in the field “Name of the organization on the badge *”.

Journalists are accredited only after receiving the personal confirmation of accreditation from the Forum Organizers.

The confirmation is sending to a mass media representative’s email mentioned in the registration form.

A badge “Press” is a document that approves a journalist’ accreditation. It will be given to a journalist personally in hand during the registration process at the Forum.

The badge cannot be given to other persons.

The badge “Press” is giving only after ID demonstration and upon availability of confirmed accreditation presented in the Forum’s database and/or by giving the printed invitation letter sent personally to a mass media representative by the Forum’s press office to the email mentioned in the application.
