Press Accreditation and Registration for ESC Congresses

We highly recommend you get ACCREDITED and register ONLINE by using your My ESC account to avoid queues on site. 


Register ON SITE by providing the following press credentials at the registration desk: a valid press card and three recent published bylined articles. 



Fill out the accreditation form online. The ESC Press Office will examine the credentials you provide and grant you a press accreditation for two years if your request is accepted.

To be accredited as a press representative will allow you to attend at all ESC congresses for two years.

Please note that once accredited as press, you still need to register before each ESC event registration deadline.

Why become accredited as press ?

It allows you to attend ESC events and collect your press badge on site, to access the exclusive press web page (ESC Congress only) and the available embargoed press material (press releases, abstracts, full papers, slides…), as well as reach ESC experts for interviews, and much more!

Get your two-year accreditation
