VIRTUAL CONFERENCE REGISTRATION

We strongly encourage delegates to attend the conference in person this year, however if you are unable to do so, you may consider a virtual registration.

We will be streaming out the Forums on Tuesday, and the plenary sessions and approximately half of the concurrent streams from Wednesday – Friday of the conference. You won’t be able to choose which three streams you have access to (these will be set in advance).

There will be also limited capacity for networking and interactivity with conference speakers and in-person delegates via the virtual attendance option.

Please take these factors into account when making your registration selection.
