The 1st World Press Briefing will be held in Beijing from 25 to 29 September 2006 and is designed to allow press organisations to review first hand the preparations surrounding the Beijing Games. The briefing will offer attendees the chance to learn about the facilities and services that will be available for the accredited media during the Games so that they can start to prepare for their Games-time coverage. The attendees will be able to participate in venue tours, inspect accommodation facilities and hear from BOCOG about the competition schedule, planned services and facilities for the media at the Main Press Centre and the venues, as well as about media accommodation, transport, accreditation, rate card, technology and photo services. The attendees will also have the opportunity to experience China’s unique history and culture during their stay.
