Your Speaking Slot (if applicable)

To ensure you meet the delegates who have a genuine interest in your products and services and to enable our delegates to choose their sessions more effectively, we are suggesting that sponsors provide us with a seminar video preview clip to back up the marketed précis.

This is your opportunity to promote your session to our pre-registered delegates and let them know the key topics covered and takeaways. All videos provided will be added to the IRMS Youtube channel and shared in various social media feeds.
