Presenter Promotional Videos

DDW invites all presenters to submit a promotional video explaining the top reasons to attend your presentation. New for this year’s meeting, presenting authors who submit a video will be entered in a drawing to win free registration to DDW 2018. The winner will be announced onsite in Chicago. Upon approval, videos will be posted to the DDW YouTube Channel and may also be shared on other DDW social media sites. Videos should be at least 30 seconds long but may not exceed three minutes in length. Please be sure to mention the title of your presentation along with the date and presentation number. Do not include any unpublished data in your video. Examples of last year’s videos are available at the DDW YouTube Channel.

Videos will be accepted through April 21, 2017. Click here to submit your video.
