Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Virtual Conference?
A virtual conference provides an online experience that includes education, networking and other elements traditionally offered at onsite conferences.
How will sessions be presented?
You will experience the sessions in three formats: live, simulated live, and on demand. The simulated-live (simu-live) format may be new to you; it provides the best of both worlds, an opportunity to watch a panel discussion while, at the same time, being able to engage with the panelists and other registrants through the online chat in real time. In a live session, you will be able to pose questions at certain points during the session; in simu-live sessions you will be able to interact with panelists for the duration of that session.
Will there be any networking opportunities at this virtual conference?
There are two networking breaks per day with multiple networking sessions offered during each break. Advance sign-up is required to join a networking session. However, if you missed the chance to pre-register, you still can join the Town Hall discussions each morning and/or stop by the ‘Meet the Sponsors’ room to mingle with some of the conference sponsors and other registrants.
Once you are in a session, you can communicate with other attendees and the speakers via the chat function.
Can I access information pre-conference?
The conference platform will be accessible as of Sunday, June 21, 2020. Test your system in advance of the program to ensure you are able to participate in the virtual sessions. Please test your virtual conference login and password at: https://learning.inta.org/inta-2020.
*Important Note: Please do not use Microsoft Internet Explorer as a web browser to view the conference. It will not function correctly.
Any tips to improve my virtual experience?
- Make sure you have pop-up blockers disabled in your Internet browser settings.
- Check to see if audio (sound) is projected through your computer speakers. Be sure that either your computer is equipped with speakers or the room where the conference is being broadcast is equipped with speakers so you can hear the presenters.
- If you are not able to hear any audio through your computer speakers, first check to make sure your speakers are not muted or turned off. The next step is to refresh your screen by pressing the F5 key on your keyboard or clicking the “refresh” button in your web browser.
