This page will answer most frequently asked questions related to 3DHEALS Zoom webinars, Instagram Live/podcast, events for both our speakers and audiences. Sponsors should visit this page.
Who can speak at the 3DHEALS events?
Typically, we look for key opinion leaders, social media influencers, innovators, and early adaptors with different backgrounds to engage in a theme-based 90-minute presentation and conversation. 3DHEALS team and its global community managers are on the constant search for trending relevant topics that would address critical issues in healthcare 3D printing, bioprinting ecosystem, as well as the adjacent fields. However, if you would like to be invited to speak, here is the application portal.
What is the basic format for 3DHEALS webinar?
The typical format of the webinar is the following:
Total webinar time lasts 90 minutes, including presentations and audience QA. We typically invite 3-4 expert speakers with or without a moderator focusing on a single theme. Each speaker will have 15-20 mins presentation time typically with visual tools like PowerPoint presentations, videos, AR/VR, or 3D prints. Immediately following each speaker’s presentation, there will be a 5 min QA session from moderated audience questions.
What should I present?
Unless you are speaking as a sponsor, we will require you to keep the sales pitch to a minimum. Even for sponsors, we have the same recommendation: keep the sales pitch low. The goal of these events is to foster intellectual exchange and not for direct sales. Of course, being in the spotlight will naturally elevate your and your company’s visibility. We would argue that a presentation that provides insights and knowledge rather than a sales pitch will be a lot more impactful to your business goals and career.
How will the speakers be promoted?
We will leverage all five of our major social media channels, dedicated graphic designers, and curated audience email newsletter campaign. We will also provide the option for speakers to do a written influencer interview with us to increase pre-event visibility. Post-event, we provide speakers the option to write an Expert Corner blog. These three steps consolidate a speaker’s visibility to the existing audience and grow a new audience both before and after the event.
What about recording and sharing of the Zoom webinar?
We would require speakers to grant us permission to record the zoom webinar and share it with the public without any restriction because frankly, this is the only way to make this virtual event meaningful. Speakers who have concerns or will not grant us permission will not be invited to speak.
What is the audience made of?
The audience is a typical mix of engineering, healthcare, entrepreneur, academics, and industry. A typical conservative estimate of a nonbioprinting event registration is 100-200, and a bioprinting event registration is 200-300. These numbers are growing over time. The number is also very dependent on the theme, specific speaker, format, and time zone of the particular event. The typical live audience is around 30% of those registered, which is industry standard, but we often have 40%-50% of the registered audience live.
How much does 3DHEALS webinar series cost?
Currently, attending 3DHEALS webinars live does not cost anything, as we value your engagements. The recorded Zoom video will be on-demand for free for three days for those who have registered for the webinar on Zoom. After the three-day grace period, we will move the event onto our Courses page and will be on-demand there for a small fee to cover our administrative fee. If you are our 3DHEALS Premium member, you can watch all of our on-demand videos for free.
Can I get a 3DHEALS Certificate of Completion after watching the webinars?
Yes. There are three ways to do this
1. Apply here. Fee: 20 USD
2. On-demand portal. Wait for our on-demand webinar page to go live where you can have access to the recording and obtain the certificate after you are done with the progression. Cost: 20 USD. Once you gather 10 certificates, we will provide one year of Premium membership.
3. Our Premium membership allows you to watch ALL of our on-demand videos, with a certificate of completion when you complete each webinar.
Is there networking opportunity?
We always add a 30 minutes breakout room Zoom meeting session for the audience to meet one another and to meet the speakers (if they are available). We intend to iterate and optimize this process for every event.
Our IG account and Youtube account serve as a window into the world of healthcare 3D Printing and bioprinting. We aim to use this platform to give all innovators an equal playground — the democratization of marketing power. Good works should be discovered and highlighted regularly. It serves both the innovators and the public. We also aim to make our IG a window for inspiration. We want people to be able to find futuristic art and design concepts as well as life-changing applications. Every 3DHEALS Instagram post is also directly reflected on our landing page.
Every Thursday (SF, Pacific Time), we will host IG Live interviews with the Instagram influencers we admire to have formal and informal conversations.
The same interview recording will also be converted into videos and podcasts.
