What Do You Get Access to as Registered Press?

As a media registrant, you will have complimentary access to:

  • Scientific sessions, plenary sessions, the exhibit hall, and the poster hall;
  • Tickets to ADLM University sessions (available in ADLM's onsite press room);
  • Select sessions that will be available on the digital meeting platform, and that you can either watch live or on demand 24 hours after they occur.

Roundtable sessions are closed to the press due to their small attendance size, but we will be happy to schedule interviews with roundtable speakers.

Photography and Videotaping

Registered media are allowed to take photos and video record in the exhibit hall, but only after receiving prior approval from the ADLM Communications team and arranging for an ADLM staff member to escort the photography or film crew. Registered media must also receive approval from the exhibitors whose booths they are photographing/videotaping.

Registered media may not take photos or videotape any ADLM sessions.

Requests to take photographs or videotape in other parts of the convention center outside the exhibit hall and sessions will be reviewed and approved by the ADLM Communications team on a case-by-case basis.

To submit a photography/videotaping request and/or to arrange for an escort in the exhibit hall, please send the following information to ADLM Senior Manager of Communications & PR, Christine DeLong:

  • Purpose of the photography/video shoot
  • Planned location of the shoot within the convention center
  • Planned date and time of shoot

Embargo Policy

The information contained in the abstracts selected for presentation at ADLM 2024 is embargoed until the date and time the abstracts are presented at the meeting.

The information contained in the meeting’s scientific sessions is embargoed until the date and time the sessions are presented at the meeting.

The media, companies and institutions issuing press releases, and others are required to abide by this embargo policy.

Onsite Press Room

There will be an onsite press room at McCormick Place.

As a media registrant, you can pick up your badge and other meeting materials in the onsite press room when you first arrive at the convention center.

The press room offers WiFi and charging stations, and you are welcome to make yourself comfortable here to work on stories. Additionally, free breakfast and lunch will be available for registered press Monday-Thursday of the meeting, and afternoon refreshments will be available Sunday.

Please note that you must be registered as media to use the press room. Company and public relations representatives may enter the room to drop off press materials, but are not permitted beyond the entryway table.


There will be an interview room at McCormick Place where registered media can conduct interviews for editorial news coverage. Use of this room for interviews is by appointment only and is subject to availability.

Media interviews may also be conducted in the ADLM press room or within the confines of a company’s booth as long as the photography and videotaping policies of the ADLM exhibit hall are observed.

To reserve the interview room, please contact Christine DeLong.
