Access to the Media Centre
To allow delegations' Media Relations Officers access to the WSIS Media Centre
during the Summit, the WSIS Media Office will issue them with two overpasses per
delegation. These overpasses will be valid only for access to the Media Centre
but will not specify the bearer's name and may therefore be used by different
delegation Media Relations Officers as they require. Entry to the Media
Centre will be strictly limited to accredited media representatives and to the
bearers of the aforementioned overpasses. The overpasses will also give the
speaker at a press conference or briefing and the persons accompanying him/her
access to the press conference room.
It is to be noted that the overpass for the Media Centre will give access to
most of the WSIS Media Centre's facilities (press conference rooms, Media Centre
staff offices, documentation service), but not to the work area that is strictly
reserved for journalists. Media Relations Officers wishing to use computer
facilities for work or Internet access should use the cybercafé facilities that
are available within the Kram PalExpo.
Media Centre overpasses
Overpasses for the Media Centre may be collected from the Media Centre by
delegations’ Focal Points or Media Relations Officers from 5 to 11 November
inclusive. After that date, access to the Media Centre will be controlled
and it will be necessary to contact the Media Office in order to visit the Media
Centre and collect the overpasses. It is therefore strongly recommended that
overpasses be collected by 12 November.
Focal Points and Media Relations Officers will be asked to sign a form
attesting that the two overpasses have been handed to them. For security
reasons, an overpass that is lost will not be replaced.
