The Games will have a Main Media Center for accredited media inside the closed-loop and a media center for non-accredited journalists outside the closed-loop, both in Beijing, as well as a Mountain Media Center in Zhangjiakou.
During games time, accredited journalists can interview athletes in the mixed zones of competition venues, Winter Olympic Villages and Medals Plazas in Beijing and Zhangjiakou.
Press conferences will be held in the MMC and the non-accredited media center, all of which will be broadcast live on the MyInfo system. Journalists can also ask questions through the system and download the content of the conferences afterward.
The MMC and the Mountain Media Center will provide 24-hour catering service for journalists and 24-hour room service is available at nearly 50 designated hotels.
