ACCESS REQUIREMENTS

For the best portal-experience, use Google Chrome on a desktop device. Please note that tablets (including iPads and Surface Pros) as well as phones will have reduced functionality. You will only be able to access the platform on one device at a time.​

If you are having trouble accessing the portal:​

  • Check that inevent.com is not blocked by your company server. If it is, you will need to submit the website to your IT team to unblock it. 

  • Check your WiFi connection. You may need to use your phone's hotspot for a stronger connection, use ethernet instead of WiFi or move closer to your modem. 

  • Close other programs or tabs on your device that are using your camera, such as Zoom or Teams, as well as any other applications not in use. 

  • Disable cloud-based servers if you are using any, such as company-specific servers, Citrix etc. 

  • Use a personal device rather than a work device.

  • Try accessing the event in "incognito" mode in your Google Chrome browser.

  • Reach out to the event team for support, and include any relevant screen shots of error messages. Please ensure that you are using the correct browser and device first.

Look out for notifications 

There may be times throughout the day where the event team will send you venue notification. This will have a ping sound  and will pop up on your top right hand corner. This will help remind you of where you need to go, or whether a session is about to start. 

Attending Sessions 

Head to the Virtual Lobby. Here you will see the different tabs for each day.There will be a red "live" button that will appear once a session is live so you can see what is currently happening.

Inside a session

If there is interactive portion of a session, the room host may request for participants to join the screen. To request access, click on the hand in the top left corner. The host will add you into the screen when appropriate: you will see a pop up appear when they do, which you will need to accept, then select your camera settings and click join.

You may also see a popup from your browser requesting access to your camera and microphone. Click "allow" on this first. Then select the correct camera and microphone option if you are using external equipment and click "join now".
