Entomology 2018 Press

Members of the media may request press passes in advance of the Annual Meeting. Proper media credentials must be presented upon arrival at the registration desk, and the credentials must show a direct affiliation with an accredited news organization (print, web, TV, or radio) or membership with the National Association of Science Writers (NASW). Public information officers from universities with proper credentials and identification may also receive press passes.

Freelance journalists who do not have media credentials and who are not NASW members will generally not receive press passes, but exceptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Requests can be made by calling 301-731-4535 x3009.

Companies or organizations producing publications, videos, or other electronic media intended for marketing, advertising, financial analysis, or public relations purposes may not register as members of the media. ESA reserves the right to bar from this and future meetings any registered media personnel who, at the determination of ESA’s Executive Director, misuse media privileges to engage in activities other than journalistic pursuits.

No member of the media will be permitted to record symposia, lectures, meetings, or other events without prior written permission from the organizers and the presenters, and no film or videotape may be broadcast or rebroadcast without prior review and written permission from the organizers. The press contact for the Annual Meeting is Joe Rominiecki; email jrominiecki@entsoc.org or call 301-731-4535 x3009.
