Welcome to Press Registration
Here, members of the media can pre-register for complimentary press access to the 2018 Fall Meeting, book hotel rooms and purchase tickets for Fall Meeting ticketed events.
AGU encourages you to pre-register on this site to expedite the badge pick-up process onsite at the meeting. YOUR PRESS REGISTRATION IS NOT COMPLETE UNTIL YOU GET TO THE
SUBMITTED PAGE. Once your registration is approved, you may log back into the registration system to purchase tickets for events.
The AGU Press Office provides complimentary press registration to members of the media for the express purpose of gathering news and information to produce or facilitate
media coverage of AGU meetings. Members of the media eligible for complimentary press registration include staff journalists, freelance journalists, photographers,
videographers, bloggers, podcasters, authors, filmmakers, public information officers, institutional science communicators, student journalists and journalism professors.
Press registrants receive a badge that provides access to all scientific sessions, the press room and the press conference room. Some events and activities,
including but not limited to invitation-only events and communications workshops, are not open to press badge holders.
Representatives of publishing houses, the business side of news media, political action committees or similar and for-profit corporations are not eligible for complimentary press registration. Editors
of journals or other publications who do not report for or edit their outlet’s news section are also ineligible for complimentary press registration.

Scientists who are presenting at the meeting and are also reporting from the meeting for a recognized media outlet may be issued press credentials at the discretion of the AGU Press Office.
Anyone who presents at the meeting must register and pay the appropriate fee as a presenter. Registrants who are presenting at the meeting and
also reporting from the meeting for a recognized media outlet should complete their media registration prior to registering for the meeting as a
presenter. These registrants will be contacted by Fall Meeting staff.
All press room badges are issued at the discretion of the AGU Press Office.
All registrants must provide credentials regardless of whether they have received press registration for past AGU meetings.
Press room badges are non-transferable.
NOTE: Audio, photography and video recording are not allowed in scientific sessions or in poster halls.
