Thank you for registering for PMBA’s 2020 Virtual Annual Conference. We look forward to seeing you online Tuesday, May 26–Friday, May 29. Please read the information below to help you make the most of your attendance experience.
 
Log In
We recommend you log into the Virtual Conference Platform 15 minutes prior to the start of the day. To log in, visit http://www.spvirtualevent.com/pmba2020 and enter your email address and the password:PMBAVirtual2020. If you have any problems logging in or can’t find your password, simply click on the chat button at the bottom of the login page and send a message.
 
Activities
Even though we are meeting virtually, PMBA wants to offer some of the same fun we have when we are in person! There will be multiple activities throughout the virtual event—all with a chance to win a prize. Check out the instructions here, on the app, and the virtual platform.
 
Virtual Happy Hour | Tuesday, May 26, 5:00 pm local time
After our first day of sessions, spend some time mingling and connecting with colleagues in small virtual networking groups! Plus, attendees will be asked to activate their most creative virtual backgrounds! Your fellow attendees will vote live to determine who wins and receives a special prize. There will be four happy hours, each starting at 5:00 local time. Please attend your time zone’s happy hour.
 
Virtual Conference Bingo
Are you one of those people who pays close attention to every aspect of a virtual meeting? Well those skills are about to pay off for you with Virtual Conference Bingo. Download a bingo card and play along! Pick a new card each day or play the same one over again. Choose between bingo card one, two, three, and/or four. Each day, the first two attendees to get BINGO will win some great prizes.
 
Trivia
If you are into trivia, you’re going to love competing in PMBA’s online trivia contest during the conference breaks. Our Trivia Master will ask two questions during each break for attendees to answer through the virtual platform chat box. The first to get a question correct will receive points. Whoever has the most points at the end of the conference wins a prize!
 
App
Don’t forget to download the conference app! You can use the app throughout the conference to view the full conference program, create your custom schedule, learn about our sponsors and connect with fellow attendees. We will have several group chats running all week long on the app, including a general thread, a small station chat, and a chat for each licensee type. Learn how to download the app and view some helpful tips here.

How to Stream
You can view the virtual platform on any of your electronic devices: phone, tablet, or computer. However, we recommend using your computer for the best viewing experience.

How to View the Conference on Your TV
If you are able to use your computer’s screencast function, you can view the event on your TV; however, it may limit your ability to participate in the chat. We recommend viewing the event on your computer.

Best Way to Interact With Sponsors
You can interact with sponsors in real time on the virtual platform while we are live. Simply visit the sponsorship hall and click on the sponsor with whom you would like to speak. If you don’t have time to stop by their booth, you can also communicate with them on the app! Simply click on the sponsors button at the bottom of your app screen and select the sponsor with whom you wish to connect. Once you are on the sponsors page within the app, you can connect with them and send messages.

Social Media
Social media is another way to connect with your peers and fellow conference attendees! Be sure to follow PMBA on TwitterFacebook, and LinkedIn. We will be posting throughout the conference and hope you will be, too. Like, retweet/repost, and comment on our posts, and we will do the same for you. Tag us and use #PMBAconf2020 when posting!

Watch On-Demand Later
All of the sessions will be recorded. We will be putting all of the recordings onto the PMBA website for access after the event is over. Anyone who attended the conference will be given a password to access the page. You will receive this information in your follow-up materials.
