Which web browser should I use to access the virtual event?
Use Google Chrome web browser for the best user experience when accessing the virtual event. If you experience any technical difficulties using Google Chrome, try clearing your cache or opening a new 'incognito' window.
I have registered for a 2, 3, or 4 day pass, but I have access to the whole virtual platform - how does this work?
You will be able to login to the platform throughout the duration of the event, and take part in virtual meetings at any time throughout the week (so please be sure to update your meeting availability in your profile). However, your agenda access will be restricted to the days you have registered to attend.
All 'SPEAKERS PRESENTING TODAY', 'DELEGATES ATTENDING TODAY' and 'SPONSOR & EXHIBITOR REPRESENTATIVES' will have access to the agenda sessions on the current day's agenda (unless viewing this prior to the live event dates, in which case these will display those with access to the agenda sessions on Monday 12th October). These are listed on the left hand side navigation bar. If you are not attending the current day's agenda you will be listed as 'ALL OTHER SPEAKERS AND DELEGATES' and will not have access to the agenda sessions for that day.
Why do the timings on the MedTech Summit event guide differ to the timings I see on the agenda in the Virtual Event platform?
The event guide agenda is in CEST time zone.
However, within the virtual event platform, in order to make it easier for you to manage your time and schedule, the agenda will be presented to you in the time zone in which you are currently based.
E.g. If you are based in the UK, you will see the agenda in BST time zone. If you are based in Europe, you will see the agenda in CEST time zone. Etc.
How do I start a chat with someone?
In order to start an instant web chat, you need to establish mutual 'interest' with another attendee. Click 'show interest' on the attendee profiles of the people that you would like to connect with. This will send a notification to those people to make them aware of your interest to connect, and will be added to your 'MY 'INTERESTED' LIST' tab. If the person you have shown interest in shows interest in you too, you will form a connection, which will show in your 'MY CONNECTIONS' tab. With mutual 'interest' established, you will be able to start chatting via an instant chat messenger.
