Frequently Asked Questions
How can I start editing my profile in the virtual event hub?
First, you will need to log in through the event page by entering your email address and password when you click the ENTER EVENT button. If you don't have a password yet, just create one.
Once logged in, you will be redirected to the Virtual Event Hub to edit your profile.
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? The fields are greyed out.
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.
Can other fields be added to the attendee profile?
Currently, you are not able to add more fields to the attendee profile, even if you add them in your order form.
However, admins can disable the Pronouns field and the option to Accept Direct Messages in Settings > General Settings
