Our virtual events

Our virtual events will be just like the live events you know and value from the Confed. We will still be bringing you engaging headline speakers, rooms for interactive debate and panel sessions as well as coffee breaks to catch up with colleagues and our exhibitors. The only difference is it will all be streamed live to your browser.

So how does it work?
Using the easy to navigate tool bar you will be able to look at the whole agenda for the event and plan your day. Drop in and out of the live sessions, roundtable discussions and visit our virtual exhibition. You will still be able to connect and network with colleagues in our networking lounges and participate fully in sessions by turning your camera on and joining in the conversation or through the chat and Q&A function.

How do I join?
All you need to do is register as normal for the event and 1 week prior you will receive your joining link giving you access to the event page. From here you will be able create your profile allowing other attendees to connect with you and plan which sessions you would like to attend.

On the day of the event join through your bespoke joining link and click on the session or event area you would like to join. If you have any issues the events team here will be on hand to help.
