Frequently Asked Questions
Can I edit my virtual event hub profile in advance?
Speakers, Exhibitors, Admins, and Staff may edit their virtual event hub profile in advance since they can enter the event even before it starts. On the other hand, attendees may only edit their virtual event hub profile once the attendees are allowed to enter the event, which is normally 30 minutes prior to the event.
Why can't I edit my name and pronouns?
If you are a speaker, this is most likely because the event admin has this section toggled off:
Please reach out to the event admin to have this option toggled on.
Can I add other photos or files to my profile?
No, you can't. You may update your profile photo and a video intro, though.
