Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

CeBIT 2000 Hannover (24 February to 1 March) Dear Sir/Madam, We are in receipt of your request for press ID. Sadly we are unable to grant this request. Due to the ever-growing number of online media, it has become increasingly difficult to verify journalistic credentials. To meet the journalistic criteria an applicant must be employed in a publishing or broadcasting capacity in which it can be verified that journalistic/ethical codes are adhered to. This is normally the case for print media which is on sale for a price, or for electronic media allocated fixed frequencies. This is the main criterium we use for pre-selection. With the increasing number of online media we are regrettably no longer able to verify journalistic credentials since online media can be freely accessed by anyone. For this reason we can only issue you with press ID for the fair on presentation of a valid journalist‘s ID. We ask for your understanding for this ruling which has had to be introduced to safeguard the confidentiality of our exhibitors. Best regards, Deutsche Messe AG Press and Public Relations Department ®
