Virtual sessions will be live-streamed, so you are able to join the live session in progress, interact with session attendees and faculty via the live chat. Replays will also be available if there are sessions that are offered during times you are unavailable.

We are using the platform Socio to build an app specifically for the event that will allow you to connect with other attendees, faculty and sponsors via chat and video rooms. Our goal is to make this as connected as possible to the live experience for those unable to attend in-person.
