Webinar contributors include the webinar host(s), moderator(s), and guest speaker(s) on the Livestorm platform.

You can also choose which team members you want to add as hosts and which team members you want to add as moderators.
- Next, below this, under the subheading ‘guest speakers’, you can add the guest speakers that you want in your webinar.
Publish the webinar
When you finished with adding the above details and the contributors for your webinar, you can now publish this webinar and ask your participants to register for the webinar. For this, follow these steps:

- When you have your webinar, you can go to the registration page and check if everything is as you want. This is the page where the webinar participants will register for your webinar.
