Promotion Information

We ask our presenters to send a short video (around 30-60 seconds) which ETAS can use to promote the event on our social media channels. We will host the video on our YouTube channel as an unlisted video, which means it will not appear in searches or playlists--it can only be seen by people visiting the video through a direct link. Please select "Yes" below if you accept these terms. There is a general comment box at the bottom of this form if you have special requirements.
Please click any social media platforms where you would like us to mention you directly in our event promotion. (For example, "We can't wait to see @example_presenter at our upcoming event! Check out a sneak preview of what they have planned!"). Ticking boxes below will reveal spaces to enter your profile information. Please click "None of these" to skip this.
