ERA-EDTA will grant press credentials to journalists employed by accredited media organisations for the purpose of editorial coverage. Official industry spokespersons, staff and communications agents are not eligible for press registration.
Journalists must submit press credentials (press card) and a letter from the editorial office of the magazine/newspaper verifying that the journalist is being sent to cover the ERA-EDTA congress. A copy of the press card and of the letter from the editorial office should be sent to the ERA-EDTA press office (Fax +49 3643/ 7764-52; firstname.lastname@example.org).

Journalists who do not submit an article will be charged the full congress fee after expiration of the deadline. With the delivery of the press pass, journalists have to sign this agreement.
