We won’t be in Nashville for 2020 but we will be holding the entire conference virtually. Please visit https://usdla.org/2020-registration/ to register for this event.
We are so excited to welcome you to the 2020 USDLA Annual Conference. We are going to start strong on Tuesday with Pre-conference workshops and our Opening Reception! We have a great line-up of sessions for you with some amazing keynote speakers! Along with sessions, we also have networking opportunities, time with our sponsors and exhibitors, and time to relax with colleagues! This information will guide you through how the conference will run. Please, keep this close by all four days, so you can refer back to it if you need it!
Desktop app: We will have two areas for you to log into. The first login area is the desktop app (you can also download the mobile app called ERMobile in the Apple and Google play store if you need to take the conference on the road!). You will login with the email address that you registered with and your Registrant ID.
Meeting Room Links: The second area you will log into is the meeting room links page. You will have a unique link, so please don’t share this. You will only be able to log into one device at a time. Your link is also provided in your email.
The conference will take place starting at 3:30 pm eastern time on Tuesday, July 21st and run through 1:00 pm eastern time on Friday, July 24th. The full schedule is located at https://content.usdla.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/USDLA2020VirtualConferenceSchedule.pdf. You can also access the schedule within the app and within the Zoom Meeting area. Throughout the day we will come together as a full group to talk continue to guide you through the full program. Each session will have a moderator to help the presenter and they will also be there to guide you to what is coming next!
SPONSOR AND EXHIBITOR TIME
The exhibit hall is open throughout the conference, but there will be special times that is dedicated to the exhibit hall. Sponsor/exhibitor information will be in the app. The area called Exhibitors will give you a list of all the exhibitors and will provide information for each of them. The area that says Floormap will have the exhibit hall diagram where you can you and visit with each one. You will see a “table” for each one next to their logo. If you click on it, you will see their Virtual Room Link. This is how you will access their room to talk to them.
We will have a “scavenger hunt” with the exhibitors. As you visit their booths you will receive a letter. Once you gain all the letters, you will unscramble it to create a phrase, take a picture of it and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will draw from these entries at around 3:55 pm eastern on Thursday. The Scavenger Hunt sheet is attached to this email, but it is also in the app for you to print off!
Tuesday: During the Opening Reception, you will have a chance to hear from each of our sponsors/exhibitors and then have time to start visiting with them.
Wednesday: 3:00-4:00 pm and 5:00-6:00 pm eastern time
Thursday: 3:00-4:00 pm and 5:00-6:00 pm eastern time
