Press Registration

Any individual who would like to register as press for the 35th Anniversary Annual Meeting & Pre-Conference Programs (SITC 2020) must complete and submit the press registration form to communications@sitcancer.org. Please include a scanned copy of your press credential and/or a letter of assignment from your media outlet as part of your submission. Your press credentials and/or letter of assignment are required onsite to secure a press badge. No exceptions will be allowed.

Submitting the press registration form does not guarantee receipt of a complimentary press pass, and press passes are not granted to anyone whose principal purpose for attending the event is—in SITC's judgment—for reasons other than covering it as working news media. Advertising and marketing representatives, as well as editors attempting to solicit papers for competing journals, will not be allowed to register as press.

Press passes/registration for the event(s) only allow access to the common meeting areas and general session rooms with speakers offering educational content. In the event SITC provides a media room at SITC 2020, your press pass will also gain you entry as a dedicated work space while onsite. Attendance and coverage of private meetings associated with the event are not allowed without permission from SITC executive management.
