The organizing team behind the Tallinn Digital Summit, which will be held on Friday, Sept. 29, is preparing for the media to take a greater interest than usual in Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy in connection with the Catalonia referendum to be held on Oct. 1.

"We have received a request from Spanish representatives to reserve them a press room immediately following the end of the meeting," a spokesperson for the organizing team told BNS on Friday.

There are five rooms for press conferences in the summit's press area. The biggest, a 200-seat room, will be used by the presidency itself together with the presidents of the European Commission and the Council of the European Union to hold a joint press conference.

Two of the other four rooms have 50 seats and two have 30 seats each; these are open for use by member states.

According to the press officer, the final allotment of these rooms will be clear by this week.
