  1. I was signed up for an event today on Eventbrite, it was supposed to be at 1:30 when I went online, there was no link to be connected to the webinar.

    • Hi, Patrick. Our apologies for failing to notice your inquiry prior to the webinar, and, in that regard, this response won’t help you for this event. However, should you run into this situation again in the future, Eventbrite embeds the webinar URL/link in both a confirmation popup window and a complementary confirmation email that the system generate once attendees complete the registration process. Typically, the links are of the form, where the first ### string is the Zoom-assigned ID for the meeting and the second ### string is the Zoom-assigned password.

      Note that some email systems incorrectly route such emails directly to spam or junk email folders, in rare instances, and attendees have “missed” these confirmations because of that. By all means, though, if you don’t recall receiving such a confirmation email for any meeting/webinar for which you have registered (through Eventbrite), please don’t hesitate to reach out to us in advance.

      We do record many of our webinars and, after some minor editing to add titles, etc., post them to our Youtube page: As yet, we don’t know if this webinar will be included in that set.
