Press Conference

Press conference is a type of meeting organized to inform the press & media about important events and developments. Press conferences may be held by public or private organizations and usually a professional event or PR company is responsible for putting together this event and inviting press members.

Consecutive interpreters or simultaneous interpreters may be hired during a press conference when some speakers or attendees do not speak a common language. Press conferences of political leaders, diplomatic missions, international NGOs or multinational corporations are usually conducted via simultaneous interpreting.
