Following all main competitions, press conferences will be held in the press conference room (Vaulting: In the sub press center, only on Sunday evening, September 12).

Will I be informed if my accreditation request has been accepted? ›

We will contact you after having received your request. Please desist from any enquiries until then. You will receive an E-Mail confirmation after your request has been approved or refused. Unfortunately, the steadily growing number of accreditation inquiries forces us to limit the number of media representatives allowed at the CHIO. If delays in the accreditation procedure may occur thereby, we will kindly ask you for your understanding.

Please follow the instructions of our employees, otherwise we reserve ourselves the right to confiscate the accreditation.
