Yes, the event will be open and available until April 11. The recordings on demand will be available in the event from March 24.
The live group chat is a public chat that all of the attendees have access to. The live group
chat is a good feature for open discussions, for example connected to a live broadcast. Take
the opportunity to discuss the content on the stage, ask questions and cheer together with other attendees. The chat is moderated by selected moderators who can answer, delete and block your messages.
On the upper right corner of your view, there is a tool bar with four buttons. By pressing the “people button” you access an attendee list, from where you can start a chat. Search for a specific person or by the different search fields, mark the attendee and create a chat. You have the opportunity to chat one-to-one or you can create a group chat with up to 12 people. In the chat you also have the ability to invite to video meetings and send video messages – you access these features by clicking the “+” next to the text field.
If a specific attendee has trouble with the virtual meeting room it probably is because they didn’t accept the terms when they entered the room. When you enter a virtual meeting room for the first time, you need to accept the terms of Whereby (our supplier of the video meeting) using your audio and camera. Make sure to accept the terms and the camera / audio should work.

• Are you connected to VPN? Disconnect. The security settings on your VPN may block the
Whereby service, which is the service we use for video meetings.
• For best experience of our virtual meeting rooms please use Chrome.
This is probably because of the security settings on your network or VPN. If you have a high security
firewall that’s not allowing unknown websites this can happen. Please try this:
