Frequently Asked Questions about the DW Global Media Forum

Here is a helpful list of questions that have been asked before on issues like how to register, where to attain press information and how the GMF 2021 will take shape.


Q. How will you guarantee social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic?
A. In order to ensure everyone's safety and well-being, the Global Media Forum 2021 will be held as a hybrid event. This means that while many of our speakers and panelists will travel to Bonn, Germany, the majority of our audiences will follow the event online using the latest streaming technology.

Q. I have attended Global Media Forum in previous years. But my login information from last year is not working. What should I do?
A. To register for the Global Media Forum, each participant must create a new account each year. According to data protection regulations, the account information will only be stored shortly after the event takes place and is then deleted. That is the reason why each participant must create a new account each year, even if he/she has attended previous conferences.

Q. Can someone else complete my online registration for me?/Can I complete the online registration for someone else?
A. For security reasons, we request each participant provide personal information to complete their registration, such as ID and passport number, and home address. It is therefore best that each participant complete his/her own registration.

Q. I will be attending the GMF and would like to report on the event. How do I receive relevant press information?
A. Information and press releases regarding Deutsche Welle and the Global Media Forum can be found at the DW press website. If you require further assistance, please contact the DW corporate communications team at To subscribe to the Global Media Forum newsletter, please follow this link.

Q. How much do the tickets cost?
A. On account of the unique circumstances we're presented with due to the global pandemic situation, we will make access to our online discussions, panels and workshops accessible for free to all, who wish to join the 2021 Global Media Forum.

Q. I don't work in journalism. Can I still attend the DW Global Media Forum?
A. We encourage and welcome interdisciplinary exchange and will be delight to have representatives of all kinds of backgrounds attend our events.

Q. I would like to collaborate on a project with you. Who do I need to contact?
A. There is an annual Call for Papers published for other organizations to pitch ideas they might wish to contribute to the Global Media Forum as a partner.
