Now that you have your ticket for the event, there are a few things you can do to prepare yourself for the event.
Right after you buy your ticket, 3 things happen:
You receive an order confirmation email
You receive a magic link email (if you buy your ticket 1 hour before the event or during the event)
You are redirected back to the event page
What do I do with the Order Confirmation Email?
The order confirmation email serves as proof that you have bought a ticket for the event. It will have basic details about the event (event name, date, description, etc.) and a button to redirect you to the main event page. There are other components in that email you can check out such as adding the event to your calendar or downloading a pdf copy of your ticket (only needed for in-person events).
What do I do with the Magic Link Email?
When the magic link is clicked, it will redirect you to the event page and login you in automatically (given that you have already created a password). This link can only be used once and will expire in 7 days. We suggest that you only use it when you're ready to enter the event or if you're having issues logging in.
What else can I do on the Event Page?
The event page will show you the list of activities in the event, you can start choosing which of those activities you want to join. Below, we will discuss how you can do that and the other steps you need to do to get yourself ready for the event.
1. Choose your sessions
Once you’ve registered for the event, you'll be taken back to the event site. When you scroll below, you should see the list of sessions that you can join under the Agenda tab.
Though this is not a required step, you can pre-select the sessions that you want to attend by clicking the "Bookmark" button next to the session title.
All your bookmarked sessions will appear in the My Sessions tab
Note: If you pre-register for a session, your availability for a meeting will be blocked off during those sessions. Click here to learn more about setting your meeting time availability once you've entered the event.
2. Verify Your Account
Verifying your account means you'll have to create a password for your account.
If you bought your own ticket through the event page, you don't need to verify anything anymore as you have already created a password while buying a ticket.
If you haven't verified your account yet, you can do one of the following:
Click the magic link from your email
Click the Verify Account button from your order confirmation email
Click the Enter Event button from the event page (this can only be done on the day of the event)
3. Enter the event
Access the event page on your browser. You can check the confirmation email that is sent to you and click the Join The Event button to be redirected to the event page.
Click the Enter Event button to enter the virtual event hub. The button should be visible 30 minutes before the start of the event as a default, but sometimes the event organizer opens the event earlier than that. If the button is not there yet, then you're too early.
Note: If you're clicking the Join The Event button from the email for the first time, it will automatically log you in, so there's no need to enter your email address and password after you click the Enter Event button.
If you're on the event page and it did not automatically log you in, click the Enter Event button, then enter your email address. The next step will depend on whether you have an existing password:
If you have created a password previously, it will ask you to enter your existing password. These are for attendees who bought their own ticket through the event page, attendees who verified their account after the ticket has been purchased, and attendees who have previously created an account with Accelevents.
If you have NOT created a password previously, it will tell you that a password has not been set yet, and it will give you the option to send a magic link to your email. Once you receive the email, click the magic link to verify your account, and create your password.
Once your password is set and you're all logged in, you can now enter the event:
4. Profile Set-up and Settings
Once you're in the virtual event hub, a pop-up will appear for you to complete your profile. Just follow the prompts to complete setting up your event profile. You have the option to skip this step and fill in the details later by clicking the My Profile button under your name.
