You always have to mention someone being responsible for the press
release and at least give them some coordinates in case they want
to get back to you (e.g. for extra press material, etc.).=20

A typical press release usually starts with:

"PARIS - BigCompany Inc. announces TheGreatBigProduct,
a <one sentence summary>."

Then what follows is a mix of comments, short bios and product

To put it simple: we need a name tag for who is organizing
the event, e.g. EuroPython Conferences c/o xyz, abc 12,=20
3456 Charleroi.
