The PPLI&VA Digital Experience


Watch the video to see what you can expect from PPLI&VA 2020.

How does the PPLI&VA digital event work?

Before the event

One week prior to the event, you'll be provided with a link to the digital platform.

So you can set up your profile to help kick your networking off on the right foot, and set your agenda for the week ahead.

You can see who else is attending, so you can start reaching out to arrange your meetings.

During the event

PPLI&VA Forum 2020 is a virtual event, taking place from 14:00-17:00 CT/UTC-6 on September 22-23, 2020. 

Sessions will run live in the afternoons as listed on the agenda.

On demand content will be available throughout the week.

During the event, you can use the networking part of the platform to arrange and hold meetings with the people who matter to you, at a time that works best for both you.

After the event

The digital event platform will stay live for one week following the live event. Attendees will receive access to all the conference sessions*, allowing you to catch up on the sessions you missed at your leisure.

The networking function also stays live for one week after the event. So you can follow up with the people you met, or reach out to those you didn't manage to find the time to during the event.

*(Excluding sessions limited to closed-door attendance, using the Chatham House Rule or where a speaker has requested privacy.)

Virtual networking

Our virtual platform will enable face-to-face connections via video chat, ensuring you can meet the people that matter most to you.  

Create your personal profile to indicate who you are, what you're looking for and who you want to meet. You can filter fellow attendees to find the people most relevant to you, and reach out to arrange a video chat.

Our networking platform will make it easy to connect with the right people - helping you to have the conversations that matter with the people who matter to you.

Expert insight direct to your screen

Our platform enables you to watch sessions live and interact with the speakers, panels, and Q&As in real-time as if you were in the room with them.

Simply log onto the digital platform, browse the agenda and tune into the sessions that interest you the most. 

You can bookmark the sessions you're most interested in to build your own personalized agenda!
