Journalist accreditation

Press accreditation is available to Norwegian and international journalists from all types of media (print, radio, TV, online press, photography), including freelance journalists. Accredited journalists will have access to all conference sessions and surrounding events.

Press Accreditation Terms

    • Press accreditation for WEXFO is available for journalists from all fields, including print, radio and TV, online media, photojournalists and press attachés.

    • Accredited journalists are exempt from the conference registration fee; however, they are responsible for their own travel, accommodation and visa expenses (if applicable) unless another agreement has been made. 

    • Accreditation applies to all events taking place as part of the official World Expression Forum.

    • Online accreditation ensures that your credentials will be ready for pick-up upon arrival.

    • Please note that we will request all media to provide WEXFO a link or copy of all published material concerning WEXFO, including the date of publishing, within two months after the conference (by August 1 2024 at the latest). Failing to do so, you may be charged the amount of the full congress pass of NOK 6,595.

    After submitting your application, you will receive a confirmation email. We will get back to you with further details closer to the event.
