GENERAL INFORMATION

Session talks will run through Zoom app embedded in our virtual platform, in a webinar format : participants without specific roles are not visible and cannot speak.


If your co-organizer is present on-site, he or she will chair the session on-site. If both session organizers are online, you will get co-host rights in order to present the speakers and ask the questions from audience. A staff member will be present on-site to help with the Q&A.

Online session speakers will connect 20 min ahead of the start of their block of session in order to check their settings with the session host and perform some audio/video test. They are welcome to join at that time to provide further guidelines (if needed) to the invited speakers before the session starts.

Kuoni Congress staff will support the technical aspects of the sessions by opening, hosting, recording and closing the Zoom session. They will also ensure that speakers presentation works properly (share screen, test audio/video).

Questions from on-site attendees will be either asked loudly or written through the live Q&A tool from the mobile application. Questions from online attendees will be written through the live Q&A tool on the OnAir platform.
