Brief Instructions for Media Representatives


Accreditation badgesAccreditation for Meetings in Slovenia

Media representatives can obtain accreditation for selected events taking place in Slovenia.

We ask you to apply 14 days prior to the date of the event in question at the latest. To avoid printing unnecessary badges, you wil be sent a confirmation e-mail 7 days before every selected meeting. The only thing you have to do is to click on the message sent to your e-mail and confirm you arrival. You will be able to change and update your meeting selections at any time and may add to or cancel your applications by clicking on Online Media Accreditation, and entering your username and password. There you can also access detailed instructions for registration.

The centralised system allows media representatives to be accredited for more than one event during the Slovenian Presidency by completing a single form and selecting the events they wish to attend from the menu provided in the accreditation application.


Each event will have its own badge. Media representatives are expected to collect their accreditation badges at the Media Accreditation Desk located at the Brdo Conference Centre (or at some other venue, if different from Brdo).

To receive your badge, you will be required to present a valid press card or a letter from your editor and an official identity card (a passport or other official document with a photograph).

You will not be able to enter the Press Centre or attend any media event without a valid badge. Please note that the badge must be worn visibly at all times, and that you must be prepared to present your identity card on request. Should you lose your badge, please notify the Media accreditation desk immediately.

Accreditation at a Meeting Venue

Accreditation at a meeting venue is also possible, but this may be time-consuming. Instead of completing the written application forms, you will be asked to use one of the available computers and simply apply for the accreditation online.

To obtain accreditation at a meeting venue, you must present a valid press card or a letter from your editor and an official form of identification (a passport or other official photo I.D.).
