Media Accreditation

All journalists intending to cover GSBEC must be duly registered, accredited and must obtain a secondary badge from the Press Liaison Office at the International Media Centre (IMC) for access to some events. Details on registration/accreditation and other media arrangements are contained in the media handbook, an abridged version of which will be posted on the website.

All media will be allowed to cover the opening session of the conference, and the Business forum. However, due to the limited space available and for security reasons, only one Host Broadcaster, Host Photographers, Official Photographers shall access the official sessions.

The Government of Kenya reserves the right to vet all media equipment that will be used to cover the conference; specifically cameras, and microphones.

The use of drone cameras during the conference is expressly prohibited.

For media wishing to cover the conference:

We will be posting a Media Handbook in future with detailed information for journalists. If you are a journalist and would like to cover the Global Sustainable Blue Economy Conference:

  1. Register online.
  2. The Kenyan Conference Secretariat will contact you to confirm whether you have been accredited to cover the conference.
  3. If you are accredited, you will receive full details for accessing the conference site, securing your press badge, locating the onsite media centre, and more.
