I think in this conference the repoerter does a very good job of reporting what the conference was about and describing the most important parts of it.
He is always following a sequence, and letting the reader know what is happendin by using words like "the most intense moment by far... the president was relaxed and confident."
These phrases help the reader to have a feeling of the admosphere of the event.
The repoerter also uses small qoutes that people said during the converence, although I notice he never uses long sentecnes as quotes and there are actually not a lot of those small quotes, compared to other stories I have read.
I think the reason for this is that the reader want to have main idea of what happened in the conference. They dont want to read the whole speech.
