What is a virtual event?
A virtual event is a gathering of people sharing a common interest on the web, rather than meeting in a physical location. This will be a highly interactive event, although you will only meet your peers virtually. You will be able to chat live with other attendees and ask questions, as well as, walk a virtual exhibit hall and visit booths.
What is the format?
The 2D platform will allow you course live through a PowerPoint presentation while listening to the presenter. The 3D platform is what makes this event extremely engaging. You will be able to create an avatar, a 3D representation of yourself, see each presentation in an online auditorium and network with other online attendees.
Is this similar to an on-site event?
Yes. Although you will be sitting in the comfort of your home or office, you will still be able to sit in an online auditorium, interact and network with other attendees, walk a virtual exhibit hall and more. The exhibit hall is set up just like an on-site event, where you can interact with representatives from the company/organization, download documents, view new products and more.

What do I need to view/participate in the symposium?

Will there be an opportunity to ask questions?
After all of the sessions are complete, you will have the opportunity to ask all of the speakers questions in a chat box, which will be answered live for you.
Can I still access the symposium after it has already been streamed live?
Yes. If something comes up and you are unable to attend Saturday, November 10, no worries! As long as you are registered for the event you will be emailed a link to the recorded version of the symposium for you to view at your leisure.
Who can I contact if I still have questions?
