Attending EDD15 is an opportunity for you to hear the voice of Europe and its partners as they define and debate the major issues and objectives of development policy for the post-2015 period. The theme of this year’s forum is ‘Our world, our dignity, our future’. Communicating about these challenges within and outside the development community is part of EDD’s core mission. The event enables organisers and participants to advance this goal by helping them share their stories, raise awareness, engage the press and encourage a dialogue around the topic of international cooperation and development.

Whether you want to launch a new initiative, host a special media event or share your latest news, the EDD15 has the right solution for you. This includes the media centre, which has dedicated working spaces for members of the press and session organisers, including a conference room and two interview studios.  Press conference rooms accommodating up to 60 people can also be booked for 45-minute slots; depending on your requirements, both active and passive interpretation in English and French can be provided for these gatherings, with additional passive languages and sign language available upon request.  The two TV studios onsite also make recording videos, including interviews and messages, a possibility. For more information regarding booking facilities onsite at the EDD15 please contact
