Press

Leading researchers in allergy, asthma and immunology will assemble at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando from March 2-5 for the 2018 AAAAI/WAO Joint Congress. Members of the press representing print, broadcast and online consumer media, as well as healthcare trade media are invited to attend. Contact media@aaaai.org with any questions.

Media Registration/Press Pass

Media registration will open at this website in the fall. Stay tuned for the date. Press passes will only be issued to journalists representing the editorial staff of print, broadcast or online media outlets.

All requests for press credentials are subject to review by AAAAI Communications staff. Due to space limitations, the AAAAI reserves the right to restrict the number of press badges issued to a single news organization.

Freelance writers must provide a letter of assignment on a news organization letterhead or bylined articles from a recognized news organization.

The AAAAI does not issue press passes to: a publication’s advertising, marketing, public relations or sales representatives; publishers, editors or reporters from manufacturers’ house organs or promotional publications; public relations staff of exhibitors or educational institutions; writers creating analyses or reports sold as a commodity to customers; or other individuals who are not actually reporting on the meeting for a specific media outlet. Exhibitors may not register as press.

Journalists must display their press passes at all times while attending the meeting or covering meeting-sponsored events. Press passes allow journalists access to AAAAI/WAO Joint Congress abstract presentations, plenary sessions, interest section forums, seminars, courses, workshops, debates, keynote addresses and press conferences. Journalists may not attend the AAAAI Foundation benefit without purchasing a ticket. Journalists may attend other ticketed sessions as space permits, but will not be provided a meal, if one is served.

Members of the press are responsible for providing their own meals and accommodations throughout the AAAAI/WAO Joint Congress. Beverages will be provided in the press room.

Any press pass holder who sells or markets a company or organization to a meeting registrant will have AAAAI Annual Meeting access revoked.

Exhibitors and representatives of industry, marketing, advertising or public relations firms will not be issued press passes and are not permitted in the press room or press conference room.

Individuals, companies, organizations or institutions found in violation of these policies will have AAAAI Annual Meeting access revoked. Additional sanctions may apply.
