  • Media Registration

    Members of the media are welcome to attend the Outlook Conference for the purpose of reporting on the conference and interviewing speakers.

    Media registration is complimentary but essential due to venue and security requirements. This also helps us with arrangements for equipment and venue set-up and will streamline your access to the venue on the day. Failure to register in advance may mean you are denied access to the event.

    Registered journalists will receive a media pack with the program and access to all sessions and can avail of the dedicated Media Centre at the conference venue. The Media Centre opens at 8.00am on Thursday 11 October 2018 and will remain open for the duration of the conference.
