Media Registration and Resources

Media registration is now open. Register for the world’s largest event for laboratory medicine.

The 2014 AACC Annual Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo is the world’s largest event for laboratory medicine and attracts global leaders in clinical chemistry, molecular diagnostics, mass spectrometry, translational medicine, lab management, and other areas of breaking science in laboratory medicine. The annual meeting in Chicago will be a can’t miss event for reporters covering vital research in the field of laboratory medicine, investments, and the international marketplace for diagnostics.

Media Registration Guidelines: 
Media registration is open to editors and reporters working full time for print, broadcast, or web publications with valid press credentials.

Valid press credentials are required at time of registration and include:

  • A bylined article published by their employing news agency within the past six months
  • A copy of publication masthead listing the individual’s primary position as an editor or reporter
  • Official photo identification issued by employing news agency or government

Bloggers will be considered for media registration on a case-by-case basis and must provide three of their most recent blog posts on a subject related to laboratory medicine to be considered for media registration. Freelance journalists may apply for complimentary media registration, but must present the following:

  • A signed letter on company letterhead from your assignment editor confirming your assignment to cover the event
  • A by-lined story from the publication you are freelancing for dated within the last six months 

Web-based, college, and freelance reporters are strongly encouraged to register in advance.

Please note that marketing executives, sales representatives, public relations executives, analysts, consultants, authors, and researchers may not register as media.
AACC reserves the right to deny media registration to any individual who does not meet the above guidelines, or to limit the amount of media registrants from any one publication.

AACC reserves the right to request a copy of convention coverage as a requirement for media registration.  

Video Crews at AACC Annual Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo:
Registered media and corporate crews interested in bringing a film crew will need to coordinate with the AACC Communications team to clearly define footage requests, specifically related to shooting the Exhibit floor (both prior to and during the event), sessions, receptions, and open areas.
