A Media center at the meeting premises will provide a full-service facility for media representatives covering the inaugural meeting of The Growth Net. Interviews with public personalities and business leaders as well as press conferences will be organized on a regular basis, providing media representatives with all appropriate opportunities for in-depth coverage of the event.
While many of the sessions will be open to the media, Chatham House Rule will apply, except for session clearly identified as “on the record”.
At a meeting or session held under the Chatham House Rule, participants may use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s) may be revealed. The aim is to provide anonymity to speakers and encourage openness and sharing of information. The rule is now used worldwide as an aid to free discussion. The Chatham House Rule also applies to blogging and tweeting of sessions. To encourage free-flowing debate, bloggers and twitterati are not to reveal the identity or affiliation of those speaking in sessions without their permission.
