Among all types of interviews it is one of the most popular interview types as here at the same time other than getting the information the reporter has the direct opportunity of asking if anything else he or she wants to know to the persons who organized the press conference. Press conference resembles the group interview technique. In a press conference the reporters and the photojournalists of the newspapers are called to meet a particular authority who wants to inform something in a particular place. A group of people from that particular authority sit with their information in front of the journalist with an intention to inform them. After informing them the authority opens a question answer session for the reporters where they can be further informed if they have anything left to be known. In most cases the information are given to the reporters in a written form which is called press release.
A press conference could be to inform anything new or sometimes it could be to give the own opinion on a certain decision taken by a certain group of people. For example when the Bangabandhu national stadium was allocated for football the cricket authority calling a press meet or conference protested it giving their own opinion.
