There are many ways to network and engage with your colleagues during the virtual conference.

  • The chat box will always be accessible to discuss and connect with attendees and speakers.
  • At any time during the conference, you can select the Speed Networking tab within the virtual conference platform to be randomly paired with another conference attendee. You can then meet using video and audio for up to three minutes and elect to click “Connect” and share your contact information with one another. The virtual conference platform will then keep track of all your connections.
  • You can also conduct one-on-one meetings with audio and video using the Attendee tab to directly reach out to another conference attendee or speaker and request a private meeting. This can also be utilized to follow up with your Speed Networking conversation should you wish to continue meeting.
  • The Exhibitor Showcase tab allows you to connect by viewing exhibitor videos, access resources, and utilize the one-to-one chat function to meet with exhibitors.
  • As with our AACSB in-person conferences you can always connect with fellow colleagues through the AACSB Exchange Community and the Networking Community Meetings taking placing in conjunction with the conference.

Technical—Best Practices for a Great Experience:

Check your computer for updates before the conference to ensure you don’t run into any technical issues during your attendance.

Always refresh the page if having any issues.

  • Google Chrome is highly recommended to participate in the conference. Prior to the conference make sure Google Chrome is up to date. You can confirm this within Google Chrome by clicking on the three dots in the right-hand corner, clicking Help and clicking About Google Chrome.

We recommend participating via computer but using Google Chrome on a tablet or smartphone will also work.

An internet speed of 5 mbps download and 2 mbps upload is recommended but ideally would be 30mbps download and 10mbps upload or higher for best quality. You can check your internet speed here.

If available, plug your ethernet cable (wired line) into your computer to ensure a better internet connection than Wi-Fi.

Close all other applications, including Outlook, while participating in the conference. This will allow your system to run more smoothly.

While we understand this is easier said than done, eliminating distractions will ensure you get the most out of your virtual conference experience.
