Media Information

A Media Office will be established on-site to support journalists, photographers and media representatives who wish to cover abstracts, presentations and events during the 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. We request that media representatives share links to their outputs as they are published/ broadcast with the communications lead for promotion on WMS social media channels.

Code of conduct

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

WMS Congress Ltd reserves all rights to take action to prevent or report violations of the Code of Conduct, including blocking access to WMS 2023 Congress and future Congresses.


Embargoes stand until 12:00am Eastern Time (EST) on the day of presentation for that abstract.

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

Interviews with presenters, speakers or other people attending as part of the Congress agenda should be arranged through the communications lead, Catherine Ross. Vox pop style interviews with attendees are permitted. Embargoes should be respected at all times.

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.
