Istanbul Trade and Development Symposium

The ITDS brought together policy-makers and experts to tackle structural transformation, in conjunction with the fourth UN Conference on the Least Developed Countries. As they had for earlier sites, ICTSD needed to register attendees online, publicise their programme and speakers, and provide practical information to participants from around the world.

Archived events as a resource

When distinguished speakers exchange ideas, these deserve to be recorded and shared with as wide an audience as possible. By posting presentations and videos of the sessions, ICTSD has given everyone access to the outcomes of their event.

Easy technical solutions

We used YouTube to reap all the benefits of social media, and to reduce ICTSD hosting costs. Videos can be embedded within the website simply by inserting a ‘Share’ link.

Sessions with legacy

Each session within the programme links to speaker bios, presentations and video recordings. Material can be posted immediately, creating momentum for follow-up discussions and collaboration.

Live in no time

ICTSD was pleased we were able to get their website up and running very soon after the Symposium had been planned, maximising outreach time and ensuring it was a great success.
