Organizing and Holding Press Conferences


    A press conference in UNIAN news agency is much more than just a meeting with journalists. To make sure of the high effectiveness of UNIAN’s press conferences, one should just view any TV-news broadcast or to read any issue of a central newspaper. There for sure will be the materials, based on the press conferences that were held by UNIAN.


    Thus, ordering a press conference in our conference hall at Khreshchatyk, you get a guarantee that journalists of the leading capital editions and foreign correspondents will be informed about it in advance. Besides, UNIAN has an opportunity to involve journalists practically from all the regions of Ukraine or world countries, as well as thousands of Internet users in Ukraine and the world.

     For that, our agency, the first in Ukraine, began to conduct press conferences in the Internet. During a press conference, which is held in the UNIAN conference hall, and, simultaneously, in the Internet, its participants answer questions from the hall and the Internet by turn. Such a conference may be broadcast in the Internet simultaneously in three regimes – as a text, as a live audio or video broadcast. It gives all Internet-users, regardless of their equipment, an opportunity to promptly receive the information directly from the conference-hall.


     During a press conference, our photo-correspondent takes pictures of the event by an electronic camera, with recording at CD ROM. You may order the pictures of an UNIAN press conference in addition to the main packet of services. At Your request, the pictures that you consider the most interesting may be exhibited in the UNIAN’s photo-showcases.

     For conducting presentations, the UNIAN’s hall is equipped with a plasma TV-set, with a diagonal at 106cm, and reading devices for any carriers.

    To recall a conference, held in UNIAN, you may also order a video-stenogram of the press conference.
