Accessing events and attendee portals in China

Due to internet restrictions on China, some viewers may have trouble accessing the standard Event URL for a presentation. For viewers in China, the Event URL can be updated to allow them access to a local Chinese server. Please refer to the example below, which has the required update highlighted. The link needs to be updated to replace "webcasts.com" with "gmwebcasts.cn". 

Standard Event URL Example: https://event.webcasts.com/starthere.jsp?ei=1283888&tp_key=2760b09e10

Chinese Event URL Example: https://event.cnwebcasts.cn/starthere.jsp?ei=1283888&tp_key=2760b09e10

This update will work for all Live, On-Demand, or Simulated Live presentations. Both links will point to the same event and all users show up in one report. You will not need to run two events, just distribute the appropriate link to your audience based on their viewing location.

This also works for portals. When you provide a China-based link for the portal, the change flows down to all linked events. All events accessed from that alternate portal link automatically go to a China-based event URL.
