Press passes are issued to individuals representing a recognized news organization, including journalists reporting for online media outlets and freelancers who contribute to such organizations. Individuals involved with public relations, marketing, sales, circulation, advertising, or any other non-editorial function including educational program developers (including CME writers and editors) or other individuals who are not actually reporting on the meeting are not eligible for press passes. The ATC prohibits the development of CME content based on information presented at its meeting. The ATC reserves the right to inspect the credentials of anyone requesting a press pass, and to refuse to issue a press pass. Generally, no more than five representatives per organization are issued credentials. The ATC does not make public any list of press attendees or their affiliations.

Media who produce a communications vehicle that is sponsored by a single organization or whose revenue for the publication or issue of a publication depends solely on coverage of the ATC meeting are also ineligible to receive press passes. In addition, media who produce a communications vehicle that uses the ATC name or logo to imply endorsement from the ATC are also ineligible to receive press passes.

Individuals who receive exhibitor passes are not eligible for press passes.


Credentialed media have access to all general sessions, including plenary, poster discussion, and concurrent sessions. Access to ticketed events with limited enrollment, such as early morning workshops, is restricted to ticket holders only. The ATC reserves the right to restrict attendance at any session. Press attendees are required to check-in at the onsite press room upon arrival.


In compliance with the Securities and Exchange Commission's Regulation FD (Fair Disclosure), the accepted abstracts are made available to the public on the ATC website in advance of the meeting. Thus, the first release of the abstracts is a public release on May 1, 2023.  Coverage of additional research being presented at the annual meeting is under embargo until the date of presentation.

Academic institutions, private organizations, and companies with products whose value may be influenced by information contained in an abstract may issue a press release to coincide with the availability of an abstract. However, the ATC continues to require that information that goes beyond that contained within the abstract, e.g., discussion of the abstract done as part of a scientific presentation, is to be embargoed until the start of the scientific sessions. Violation of this policy may result in the abstract being withdrawn from the meeting and other measures deemed appropriate.

Journalists failing to abide by the embargo may have their press credentials revoked.
