Media Information


A selected number of pre-approved media representatives are invited to join the 27th Annual Congress of the World Muscle Society, both in person and virtually.

A Media Office (Room 505, Halifax Convention Centre) will be established on site to support journalists, photographers and media representatives who wish to cover abstracts, presentations and events during Congress. 

Media representatives will be expected to follow the Congress Code of Conduct, as well as respect embargoes set by WMS, presenters and our industry partners.

In-person media passes:

Includes attendance at 27th Annual Congress 11-15 October: Halifax Convention Centre, 1650 Argyle Street, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Access to a dedicated space at the Congress including space to work, power a laptop, access Wifi, water and beverages.

Please note, in person attendance does not include accommodation or travel expenses.

Virtual Media passes include:

Access to the WMS EventsAir Platform to view presentations, posters, exhibitors and sponsors information.

Opportunity to interact with presenters via the app.

Code of conduct

Media delegates must abide by WMS Congress Ltd’s Code of Conduct.

Media delegates should approach interview subjects in advance to propose interviews during the Congress week.

WMS Congress Ltd reserves all rights to take action to prevent or report violations of the Code of Conduct, including blocking access to WMS 2022 Congress and future Congresses.


Embargoes stand until 12:00am Atlantic Standard Time (AST) on the day of presentation for that abstract.

For late breaking abstracts, this will be the last day of Congress.

It is permitted to carry out background interviews with presenters with their prior permission whilst respecting embargoes.

Because this is a hybrid meeting, the content may be available prior to the session being broadcast at the scheduled time in the programme. In this instance, media embargo remains as stated above.
