What Do You Get Access to as Registered Press?

As a media registrant, you will have access to scientific sessions, plenary sessions, the exhibit hall, and the poster hall. You will be able to get complimentary tickets to AACC University sessions in AACC’s onsite press room (room C106). You will also have access to 23 sessions that will be available online, 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 AACC Communications team and arranging for an AACC 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 AACC Annual Scientific Meeting 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 AACC 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 AACC 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 abstracts selected for presentation at the 2021 AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo will be available online this summer either in late August or early September. The information contained in the abstracts is embargoed until AACC makes them available online.

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

Onsite Press Room

AACC’s press room at the Georgia World Congress Center will be located in room C106.
