Webcast for LINX 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 since LINX41 in May 2003. The service is an excellent way for LINX’s global membership to follow conference proceedings if they are unable to make the event in person.
