The expert interview videos will be available online so you can watch them at your own convenience, wherever you are in the world. As long as your device has internet and can play videos, you can watch the interviews - whether that's computer, phone, tablet or laptop.
And if you buy the recordings you will have access to them forever, so you can watch whenever it is most convenient for you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:
How do I access the expert interviews?
First, you need to register for the summit using any of the "Get Your FREE Ticket" buttons.
Then when the summit starts you'll be sent an email every day with a link to a web page where you can watch the summit expert interview videos online.
How long will I have access to the interviews for?
The videos will be live on the site to watch for free until the end of the summit on Sunday June 7th 2020.
If you want to watch the interviews after then you'll need to buy the recordings which will give you lifetime access.
The recordings cost £10 if you buy before the summit starts, and £30 afterwards. You'll get details of how to buy the recordings when you register for the summit.
Can I share the interviews with my colleagues and friends?
We encourage you to share details of the summit with your friends and colleagues so they can register to get access themselves.
We do ask, however, that you don't share copies of the recordings you buy. Payment entitles you to a copy of the recordings for use by one person only. If you are found in violation of this in any way (including, but not restricted to, intranet) your access to the videos will be terminated immediately, without notice and without refund.
If your colleagues or friends would like a copy of the recordings they'll need to buy themselves. We've made the price of the pass low so that hopefully everyone can afford to get a copy.
Please remember, the Early Years Summit is almost entirely funded by purchases of the recordings. If people share the recordings instead of purchasing them then the summit won't be able to continue.
Do I need any special equipment to watch the videos?
The summit interviews can be viewed on any modern computer, tablet or phone.
The main requirement is that you have a fast enough internet connection for the videos to play. If you can watch youtube videos from your device then you should be fine to watch the summit videos too (and they'll be much more useful for you!)
If you buy the recordings you'll get lifetime access to watch the videos and will also be able to download them. You'll need a computer with enough hard disk space if you want to download the videos.
What if I have problems accessing the videos, my recordings or transcripts - or any other problems with the summit?
Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get back to you straight away.
