PARTICIPATING IN THE EVENT

HOW DO I GET TO THE LIVE ONLINE CONFERENCE?

The live online event will be hosted on Hopin, our conference video platform.

After you register, you will automatically receive a confirmation email. Please be sure to confirm acceptance of your Hopin registration by opening the Hopin email.

PRO TIP: Do this early so you aren’t scrambling on event day, PLUS you can then add the event to your calendar to have easy access to the link on event day.

On conference day, login to your Hopin account with the same account you used to register, and you will see the WIP Conference 2023 listed under the “Events” tab.

WHAT DO I DO IF I’M HAVING TROUBLE ACCESSING THE EVENT?

If you’re experiencing tech issues with our event platform Hopin, trouble shoot with this guide. Chrome settings are specific on Hopin, look here to make sure you’ve go the right ones. You can connect with Hopin Support here; click the blue chat icon in the lower right corner to get quick help.

HOW DO I MAKE SURE I'VE GOT THE LATEST DETAILS AND CONNECT WITH THE WIP COMMUNITY AROUND THE CONFERENCE?

We’ll send regular emails leading up to the conference to keep you up to date on all things 23WIP. DOUBLE CHECK the email you registered on Hopin. This is where we will send all conference updates.

(Wait. Did we mention how important this is? Once more, from the rooftops. Make sure the email on your Hopin account is correct. TRIPLE check.)

HOW DO I PREPARE TO NETWORK AND PARTICIPATE IN THE LIVE ONLINE EVENT?

Before the conference, take time to look through the agenda and add the sessions you want to attend to your calendar. You can easily add them right in the Hopin platform.

There is time each day for you to join group Networking Sessions and 1:1 Coffee Chats.

On the event days, arrive a few minutes early to get settled in (just as you would at a physical event).

Have your essentials ready: a place to take notes somewhere you feel comfortable, and of course snacks and water!
