Pick list value error

Hi ,

I have to update the Lead records with names of the Webinars the prospect has registered for. Each record can have multiple webinars reigistered.

I tried to create a pick list (Multi-select) with 30+ values which are the names of webinars. While creation it is throwing the error "Each entry cannot exceed 40 characters". But I can't reduce the number of characters as they are the standard names of the webinars.

Any work around would be of great help.

Thank you.
