Do I have to attend the entire event?

While we encourage you to enjoy the entire event to help you get the most out of it, virtual events bring the experience of an in-person conference to your personal computer. So, just like an in-person conference, you have the freedom to pick the sessions you wish to attend. The more sessions you attend and interactions you make, the more chances you’ll have to win some exclusive prizes. More details to come.

Can I pick which breakout sessions I attend?

Yes! You can choose any session you’d like to attend in each breakout session time block. You will have the opportunity to build your own agenda and add sessions to your calendar starting one week prior to the event. Before then, check out the agenda page on the event website for the most up-to-date session listings.

Can I ask questions during breakout and workshop sessions?

Yes, you will be able to use the chat function to ask questions during sessions.
If the speaker is unable to address your questions during the session, we will be sure to follow up with you afterward.
