Media and Communications
Members of the press are welcome to register for GEO Week Side Events and Industry Track, visit the exhibition, and attend the press conference.
Ministerial Press conference
Following the Ministerial Summit there will be a live streamed press conference covering the major findings and announcements from the Summit. The press conference will include Ministers from the Co-Chair Members and the host country.
Details on media access to specific events will be made available on the website by August 2019. Please note international press attendance is subject to Australia’s immigration and visa regulations.
Media coverage of GEO Week 2019 including Key Side Events and where Member governments intend to make high profile announcements in support of GEO’s workplan is encouraged. Please work through your country’s GEO communications point together with the GEO Secretariat Communications Manager to ensure your requirements are met.
Media attendees must register to attend GEO Week 2019 in order to gain access to the venue. Media ID badges will be issued to accredited media representatives and must be worn at all times to be given controlled access to authorised events.
Throughout the week a room at the National Convention Centre will be available for accredited media representatives.

GEO Principals are requested to alert the GEO Secretariat Communications Manager as soon as possible in relation to announcing new initiatives during GEO Week. Timely notice will enable the host to arrange for potential media coverage.
