The annual meeting of ESHRE (European Society of Human Reproduction & Embryology) is now the world's leading event in reproductive medicine. Well over 9000 experts are expected this year, presenting a wealth of new research and clinical developments, much of which is of great public interest. Reports from proceedings of the ESHRE congress always provide a good source of news and features.
This year's event will be held at the International Congress Centre in Munich, Germany, from 29 June to 2 July.
The scientific programme for this year's event is now complete and the press programme promises a selection of important new studies in reproduction, infertility and its treatments. Investigators from several major studies have already agreed to speak at the press conferences.
There will be press conferences during the mornings of Monday 30 June and Tuesday 1 July, and a preview press briefing at the Science Media Centre in London on Friday 27 June, at which all the press releases (under embargo) will be previewed with expert comment.
As ever, journalists are welcome to attend the congress, and ESHRE will provide a fully supported press room, press briefings, and press releases. All scientific sessions are open to registered journalists, and registration is free to bona fide journalists presenting formal press credentials. ESHRE's media policy requires accreditation with a recognised press card or commissioning letter from an editor confirming the assignment. Before seeking registration, you should check ESHRE's media policy.
Registration in advance is recommended, but journalists may register on site provided that press credentials are provided with a formally recognised press card and/or a commissioning letter from a recognised media organisation. Business cards are not acceptable.
The official congress language is English and there are no simultaneous translations. All press conferences will be in English.
