Platform & Specifications
We will use the virtual event platform Hopin that will allow speakers to deliver live content. Hopin is a virtual venue with multiple interactive areas that allows attendees to move in and out of rooms just like an in-person event, enjoy speaker content, and making personal connections. We will follow up with additional training and platform information as the event approaches. All sessions will be delivered live.
An optional PowerPoint template is available to download for your use but is not required.
As with physical events, live interaction is essential to the success of a virtual event. We ask every presenter to allow for live Q&A with attendees at the end of their session within the platform. This will provide added value to the audience and create more of an ‘event’ experience. We ask that you leave 5-10 minutes of your total session time for Q&A with attendees.
If you are concerned about your time zone and how that could impact your session, we will do our best to reschedule your session slot to a convenient time for you. However, if you cannot participate “live,” please contact Jennifer Crowley immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.

There is no dress code for presentations, and we encourage you to be comfortable. That said, you must be aware that the Code of Conduct applies to this space, both in terms of what you show on camera and what you say. We ask that you be tasteful and considerate in choosing your clothing and surroundings. Keep in mind that we are a global community. Please refrain from wearing shirts with global brand logos that are not your own. Solid colors (not white) also work best instead of prints.
