Setup program and invite participants

Whether you want to host a conference, workshop or summer school, you first design the program. Afterwards you create the event and invite participants directly via email or using a token for a dedicated registration page. You can also add track chairs, change the language, and add video rooms. You receive a manual that makes this process easy as pie.


Hosting the event

When hosting the event, most things run automatically: Participants sign up and join the video rooms for their sessions; track chairs are moderating the sessions and (if wanted) record them; participants get to engage in virtual networking sessions and a dedicated conference forum.
