Due to the international aspect of the W12 Congress, a stringent media accreditation process has been implemented.

Before applying for media accreditation for the W12 Congress, it is imperative that the below outlined information is read through carefully. Whilst we will endeavour to meet your accreditation requirements, submission of the form does not automatically guarantee full accreditation. If you require urgent feedback prior to this in order to make travel arrangements, please contact us.
