Is the Annual Business Meeting open to only those registered for the Conference?
No, the Annual Business Meeting is open to all Members of MMASC. Login information for Meeting will be released soon.
What tech requirements do I need to participate in the virtual conference?
Once registered you may access the virtual conference and watch from your desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile device. The platform works best if accessed via Chrome but can be accessed also with Firefox and Mozilla. Presentations will be using the Zoom interface. If you are not a frequent Zoom user or you will be using a different device than normal you may want to perform a test.
Can I share my virtual conference login information with other members of my team?
For every paid registration to attend virtually, only one device (computer, laptop, tablet, phone) will be allowed to enter the virtual conference.
Will there be an exhibit hall?
Yes! The Exhibit Center is an interactive function of the platform we are using. Several of our Corporate Partners are choosing to participate in the virtual hall in order to provide a robust experience for attendees. You’ll be able to view videos and documents at their virtual booths. You can visit each booth, ask questions using the chat feature, and set up and have 1:1 or groups meetings.
Don't hesitate to contact us with any additional questions or concerns. We look forward to connecting with you virtually soon!
