Follow this guide to be as prepared as possible for The Virtual MarTech Summit
What do I need:
An electronic device with internet connection, good Wi-Fi, quiet and comfy space, headphones.
How do I log on:
In order to view the Virtual MarTech Summit, you will receive a link to the Virtual Navigation Page via email. Please follow the prompt, which will allow you to login, then sit back and wait for the first presentation to begin! Remember to refresh the Virtual Navigation Page frequently to keep updated!
Check the summit agenda to see what you can expect. We aim to make this a fully collaborative event. There will be polls, surveys, chats - just as you would expect with an in-person event. Connect with fellow attendees, speakers and sponsors on our chat function on Microsoft Teams.
For use of Microsoft Teams we recommend downloading the app for the optimal experience, please use the Chrome browser if you do not want to download the app. Please email Rahmi at email@example.com to get an invite!
When the platform cuts out be sure to refresh the page and check your WiFi is still connected - then press play again. If this does not work, try turning your device off and back on again.
Connection Speeds: Before you access the event, you should ensure that your browser is configured to stream media. For audio events we recommend a minimum internet connection of 128 Kbps. For video events you will need a minimum internet connection of 800 Kbps for an optimal experience.
Try to dedicate proper distraction-free time to attend. It can help to turn off notifications and even dress the part. Please be advised that you should purposely get the day off, even if you are working from home.
Make some noise online and on social media about getting away from it all at your virtual conference. Be truly present.
Try to reduce notifications, grab a notepad, and get ready to start learning!
COMMUNICATION & NETWORKING
Play an active role: post questions, follow the slides, join the live chats - participate! Don’t participate passively in the virtual conference - be active.
Make sure to take advantage of the conference hashtag #virtualmartech, Q&A opportunities, & Microsoft Teams live chat. Share on social media and continue the conversation after the event! Connect with vendors on Microsoft Teams and explore their rooms, see what you can learn from them!
You will be able to gain access to the on-demand content following the event - if you would like to sign up then please get in touch with Luke at firstname.lastname@example.org!
You can watch and rewatch presentations for as long as they are available on-demand once you have signed up for an on-demand pass. Getting this pass will mean you don’t have to worry about missing a slide or forgetting what the presenter said when you can just pause, rewind and rewatch!
