The live sessions are most often free. The summit will last seven to ten days. Once it's over, if a person wants to view the recordings they pay $Y price. This is the most typical format. To gain access the participant has to opt-in.
With a giveaway, the organizer assembles X number of contributors. Each of them provide their giveaway item. Again, to participate, people have to opt-in. The organizer gets the email addresses of all subscribers. The contributors get the email addresses of only those people who opt-in for their item.
In both cases, there would be a theme such as a weight loss summit (yes - it's a thing - I checked) or a health giveaway. I'm not thinking of joining any giveaways or summits right now. Just exploring options for now.
