Book a pre-recording conference

A pre-recording conference can be booked to record content that will be played in a live conference scheduled for a later date. The pre-recording conference must be booked as a separate conference at least 24 hours before to the live conference.

Before you begin

  • When deciding how long the recording conference should be, give yourself extra time. Additional charges will be incurred for conferences that run longer than scheduled.
  • Book at least a 15-minute pre-conference for your recording conference.
  • Everyone attending the pre-recording conference is considered a speaker.
  • Q&A and opening script are not required for pre-recording conferences. If you would like the live conference to have an opening script and Q&A, select these options when booking the live conference.
  • Other options are not available for pre-recording conferences.
