Just prior to a session starting, you will see a button that says ‘Attend Webcast,’ which will open up a new window for the session. If you want to revisit a session or view one you may have missed, webcast videos will be available on-demand in the days following the event until February 21, 2023.

Schedule – here you can add sessions to your calendar, which you can also filter it by date.
HOW TO USE THE CHAT FUNCTION:
Chat is available in each area of the event, as well as each exhibitor booth. You can chat to everyone in the room using text, or have private 1:1 text, audio, or video chats! Here’s how it works:
Chat to all – Use the text bar at the bottom of the chat window to type a message. Simply hit send, and your message will be public and visible to all.
TIP: To tag someone in your message, simply use the @ symbol to search for their name. The chat will automatically populate names of those who are in the same chat.
Private text chat (1:1) – To have a private text conversation, select the person you would like to chat with from the right-hand side of the screen. When you click their name, a private message window will pop up. From here you can engage by text, audio, or video.
Audio & Video calls – To make a 1:1 audio or video call, follow the steps above to pull up who you would like to connect with. Once you are in your private chat window, you will be able to see a phone icon (voice only) and a video camera icon (video call). Click on the corresponding icon to initiate your call.
TIP: Use the group or private text chat to confirm someone has time and is ready to connect by phone or video.
LOGGING INTO THE EVENT AHEAD OF TIME:
We recommend that you log in 24 hours before and look around the site ahead of the event start time. This will help you familiarize yourself with the different areas and help you get more comfortable before you are hopping on to join a webcast.
*If you are not already logged in, you will want to log in with your login information provided above.
