HOW DOES A VIRTUAL SUMMIT WORK?

The virtual conference will work like this:








Due to video bandwidth issues, there actually will be limited spots (so we can make sure things won't crash). So in all seriousness, please don't wait till the last second to sign up. Make sure to claim your ticket asap to reserve your spot.





The speakers have 15min to speak; they can tune in from anywhere in the world to share their knowledge. 


The audience can interact with the speaker and ask questions (there is a 15min Q/A slot per speaker).
