How does a virtual event and trade show work?
How do I access the technical program content (educational sessions)
All registrants will receive detailed instructions and login information approximately a week prior to convention start date of September 22. If your registration included the educational content, you will be able to click the sessions you wish to attend once you are logged into the virtual platform.
How does a virtual trade show work?
A virtual trade show is accessed easily with your computer, phone, or tablet, whereby attendees and exhibitors connect via live chat when visiting booths. Much like the in-person trade show, you choose from booths to visit and can ask questions or request private conversations with representatives. Within the booth, you can view exhibitor materials, such as documents or videos, and chat with the representatives attending the booth. Representatives will be available for chat in the booths during the trade show hours. After the live dates, the booths will remain available to you as part of your registration. While a representative may not be available for chat in the booth during the extended days, you will be able to submit questions or request additional information by simply sending a message from inside the booth.
What does a virtual education room look like?
Think of a virtual platform as any other website. It provides links to click to get you to the information you want to see. In this case, that webpage has been designed to look like a conference room or auditorium. Once you login and click the link for the room you need, you will see links for the sessions you want to view and the chat function to “talk” with other attendees in the same room. The virtual platform can host many registrants during any one presentation.
Is there a video to explain how to use?
