Media Registration

To attend the Annual Meetings, all working Press must obtain Annual Meetings credentials. Requests for media accreditation will be denied if applicants cannot establish that they are professional journalists. 

To be accredited, journalists must have valid press credentials issued by national or local authorities; or clear evidence that they are on assignment from a specific news organization or publication. This applies to all freelancers, including photographers. A valid assignment letter from that news organization, or publication, is required. Photographic agencies must provide clear evidence from a client news organization or publication.

If such credentials are not held, or are in question, it will be at the discretion of the IMF/WBG to determine whether access to the Annual Meetings is granted.

Press who already have accounts and previously attended the Annual or Spring Meetings as Press may register here.

All other Press may register here.
