DUE DATE: Sunday 28th February

Recordings must be provided to Conference Design:

  • In MP4 format.
  • As a single file. Multiple files will not be accepted.
  • Submit via the conference Dropbox link.
  • Files to be named: presenter name, day, session and time of your presentation (First. Last_Day_Session_Time).

If making changes, always ensure to upload the latest version. Each upload is stamped with date/time so we will only use the latest version uploaded to the system.

Failure to submit your recording by this deadline will result in your presentation being withdrawn from the program.


Presenters will have access to the online conference portal approximately One Week before the event. We recommend presenters log in early to:

  • Familiarise yourself with the platform
  • Check session information including your abstract and biography
  • Upload a photo of yourself
  • View any handouts you may have provided in advance
  • Preview your pre-recorded presentation (if applicable).


During your session time, we would like you to be logged into the online portal to be able to answer any typed questions that may arise from those watching your video.  Our portal has a custom option to allow you to do this via typed reply. (Training for this will be provided in March).

Should you wish to discuss your project in more depth with a delegate you can then connect with them through the networking area on the online platform and they will be able to message or video call with you directly about your project.  You can even arrange a set video meeting time if that is more preferred.

Live support will be available throughout the conference opening hours and will include dedicated IT/AV support.

Should presenters require assistance at the time of the conference they should contact support by:

  • Live Support Hub: live support is immediately accessible via the icon at the top of the online conference portal. Users should log their query in the live support chat box and a team member will respond as quickly as possible.
