You may not be familiar with attending a virtual conference or perhaps have attended one or two. Virtual conference experiences like in-person conferences can vary. Conferences & Events has delivered several types of virtual and hybrid events and is working closely with NZES to shape this one to work well for members. Here's a bit of an overview on what to expect:

  • Live sessions chaired by your colleagues
  • Live session Q&A and chat
  • Sessions available to watch on demand
  • All presenters will be required to record their talks and will have an option to present live virtually or have their recording used
  • A poster gallery with posters and 1min video introductions
  • Options to interact with supporter’s gallery
  • Ability to communicate directly with other delegates (text, video or meetings) in the delegate hub
  • Networking functions

See you there!
