How will I access this year’s virtual VinCO Conference? We will be using the Crowdcast virtual event platform for this year’s event. After you register through Eventbrite, a link will be emailed to you immediately after registration and again 10 minutes prior to the event. The conference password will be sent to you 10 minutes before the event begins on Tuesday morning. You will need to enter this password to gain entry into the conference.

This will bring you to the Event Page, which will go live at 10:00am each day of the conference. To access the event and get your account started, it’s easiest if you click through from the Crowdcast email.

Crowdcast is a web-based virtual event platform so all you need to participate is a computer or digital device with a browser. They have found Google Chrome tends to work best with Crowdcast, but you can use other browsers as well.

Crowdcast is also supported on the latest Android devices right in the browser, no downloads required. For iPhone and iPad users, you can download: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/crowdcast-mobile/id1119071572

How do I ask a question during the event?

  • You can ask a question by clicking the “Ask a question” link just below the video feed (at the bottom right of your screen).
  • This is where you can submit any questions or leave a comment on a question submitted by someone else. Once the host has answered the question, you will be able to view it in the answered tab.
  • You can also up-vote questions that others have submitted. Questions with the most votes will be answered first at the end of each seminar.

Where is the chat box and what is it for?

Chat is located on the right hand side of the video feed. This is a great place to say hello and introduce yourself before the event goes live. Chat lets you directly communicate with attendees before, during, and after a seminar.

  • Please submit any questions you have for the speaker/s in the “Ask a question” box at the bottom of the screen. Only questions submitted there will be answered by the speaker/s
