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.
How do I ask questions?
Within each session, you will see tabs on the right hand side including the 'Q&A' tab. This is where you can submit your questions. Click on the '+' icon to submit your question (see image below). Once they have been approved, they will appear in the Q&A stream. We encourage you to write your name and company at the end of each question you submit as there may be others participating who will be able to follow up with you after the session to provide additional insights. Similarly, if you are submitting a question during a panel discussion that you would like answered by a specific speaker, please write @SpeakersName at the beginning of your question.
