Online event - from the comfort of your Office, Living Room, Kitchen… your choice.
The Dress Code
- Whatever you feel comfortable in… casual, sweats, pjs, cosplay - it all works. However we do recommend that because the Networking Party immediately follows the last session on Day 1 that you’ll want to be ready to attend and look your best - it’s a virtual Party!
- Dress code for speakers, panelists, presenters and hosts is business casual.
- Awards ceremony is a formal event.
- Block off your calendar and set up email autoresponder like you would normally do during attending the live conference
- Bring pen and paper, we’ll have lots of pearls of wisdom, latest updates and writer-downers.
- Prepare your meals and refreshments in advance to have them easily ready during the event
