To obtain the accreditation, an applicant shall submit a letter made on the company’s letterhead with a signature of his/her chief and the stamp of the media outlet. Any other accreditation cards or staff passes shall not be valid for work at Expocentre Fairgrounds.
The Press Service organizes and holds press conferences on opening of Expocentre’s exhibitions. As a rule these events are held a day before the exhibition opening or on the opening day. Representatives of all accredited media (one per every media outlet) have the right to attend press conferences. Invitations are handed over during the accreditation.
