Without this confirmation letter, filming/photographing/recording will only be permitted in areas that do not require approval (see below).

The following areas do not require permission for filming, taking photographs or making audio recording:

  • MSParis2017 Press Room
  • MSParis2017 Press conference room
  • Outside the Main Entrance

Permission is needed for filming, taking photographs or making audio recording in the following areas:

  • Scientific sessions
  • Industry-organised satellite sessions
  • Poster Area
  • Registration area

Filming in any other part of the Congress Centre is strictly prohibited.

Any film/photo/recording shall only be used for information and communication purposes and must mention the source of the material.

Artificial light cannot be used during presentations. Flash photography at scientific presentations and plenary sessions is not allowed. MSParis2017 may interrupt any disruptive or hazardous filming.

Media outlets and press representatives are expected to abide by the MSParis2017 Embargo Policy.
