Within 24 hours of completing your registration, you can join other attendees on the Whova app. Whova is our virtual conference center and can be accessed via the Whova app or the web. Instructions will be sent in your confirmation email.

With Whova, you can see who’s coming, view the program, connect with speakers and attendees, set personal meetings, start your own discussion groups, and more. Once the conference starts, you will “enter” every virtual session by connecting from Whova. After the conference, attendees can use Whova to access recorded sessions and network for up to 6 months.
