  • A valid press identity card or appropriate letter of assignment with proof of three recent published articles (cardiology or health-related, or referring to a previous ESC Event)
  • An Embargo form dully filled out is mandatory and will be requested when you collect your badge onsite at the congress.


Download the Embargo form

If the journalist has attended previous ESC Events, samples of the event coverage should be sent in priority. Journalists may be required to provide samples of their work at all times.

Please note, company or media outlet business cards or membership cards will not be accepted as valid. Press registration is not available to Industry or its Public Relations representatives, event management, marketing or communications representatives, even if they have a valid press card.


EBAC Accreditation

ESC Congress 2016 is accredited by the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) and by the European Accreditation Council in CME (EACCME) for 27 hours of external CME credits. EBAC/EACCME credits are also recognised by the American Medical Association towards the Physician's Recognition Award (PRA). Please refer to the AMA website for instructions to convert EACCME Credit to AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.

Certificates of attendance will be available at the Registration desks from Monday 29 August afternoon until the end of the congress.

Public Transport Pass

A public transport pass is included in all full congress registrations and will be delivered during the Congress. The transportation pass will consist of 10 single journey tickets. You can pick them up as a bag insert in your Congress bag upon collection at the Congress venue (Fiera di Roma) in the Registration Area.

They will allow you to travel on the regional train lines, buses, trams and metros within Rome city limits. The Congress venue is the last stop on the FL1 regional train line within Rome city limits.

Although Fiumicino (Leonardo da Vinci) airport is also on this FL1 regional train line, it is outside of Rome city limits, and therefore, the transportation pass is not valid for airport travel.

Please note that they will not be sent in advance.

Visa Requirement & Invitation Letter

You may download a customised invitation letter for visa purpose here.

Such an invitation is intended to help potential delegates raise travel funds or obtain a visa. Please note, however, this does not bind the ESC to provide financial support.

Please visit the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Italy for further information concerning the documents required to obtain a visa. We urge all delegates to keep in mind that a visa application may take some time to be processed and should therefore be initiated early enough to ensure it is accepted before the congress begins.

We invite you to check with your local embassy what sort of documents are necessary in your specific case, as this may differ between delegates from a same country. If a guarantee letter is required, please contact AIM Group International:
