Webcast for Members
If you are unable to make the conference in person we provide a webcast service. Members will be able to access the webcast via the ‘events’ section in the LINX Member Portal (log-in required).
LINX has been webcasting its member meetings for 15 years since LINX41 in May 2003. The service, which is provided by LINX member Bogons, is an excellent way for LINX’s global membership to follow conference proceedings if they are unable to make the event in person.
To view example footage please watch our video.
We encourage all attendees to give their feedback after attending the event. During the afternoon a link will be posted to the LINX109 survey. Attendees who complete the form will be entered into a prize draw for one of four £25 Amazon vouchers.
