Delegates and suppliers to the convention will be processed through current procedures and must wear proper identification designating their role at the event. All designated attendees will gain access to all public
spaces designated by the colour of badge displayed. Media wishing to gain access to the conference must be pre-accredited prior to arriving at the event. Badges will be ready for media pick up (with proper ID) at the registration area. Media who arrive on-site without prior accreditation will not be granted access. The minimum time for accreditation to be processed will be one business day. Media arriving on day one of the conference who are deemed to have met the criteria will be granted accreditation for day two. Media accreditation is available in electronic form on the GLOBE 2016 Website. Media accreditation notices will also be sent to all established newsrooms via email. Freelance media wishing to attend must prove assignment. All attendees designated as “Media” will have access to all public spaces designated by the colour of badge displayed.
Documenting Conference Events
Any participant (Media, Delegate, Supplier, Government Representative) wishing to document (record audio or video) the event must first notify conference staff before doing so. Any participant who has not notified
conference staff prior to commencing documentation of the event will be asked to cease activity and may be asked to leave. All documentation of event proceedings must be conducted from designated “Media” areas.
All main convention sessions will have designated “Media” areas. Participants must notify conference staff at least one business day in advance of their intention to document a particular session to ensure available
space to do so. If a participant has not notified staff of their intention to document there may not be space available in designated areas for their documentation activity to be conducted. It is not the responsibility of
the event organizers to create space for any participant to record events unless proper notification is made.
