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 bring you to the virtual event hub if the event is already happening. If the event is in the future, it will bring you to the event landing page when you click that button. 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 automatically log you into the event (given that you have already created a password). Once you're logged in, all you have to do is to click the Enter Event button on the event page. 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 landing 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 meeting availability 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 Enter Event button from the event page (this can only be done on the day of the event)
3. Enter the event
Option 1: Access the event through your order confirmation
Access the event page on your browser. You can check the confirmation email sent to you and click the Visit Event Site button or the Join The Event button.
If you have created a password previously, it will automatically log you in and redirect you to the virtual event hub after clicking the button from the email.
If you have NOT created a password yet, it will prompt you to create one after clicking the button from the email. After completing it, you will be redirected to the virtual event hub.
If you click the button before the event starts, it will redirect you to the event page.
Option 2: Access the event page link directly
If you're accessing the event link directly and not through the confirmation email, click the Enter Event button on the event page to enter the virtual event hub. The button should be visible 30 minutes before the event starts 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.
If you have created a password previously, enter your email address and password after clicking the button to enter the virtual event hub. These are for attendees who bought their tickets through the event page and attendees who have previously created an account with Accelevents.
If you have NOT created a password yet, enter your email address after clicking the button, then click the option to send you an email to verify your account. Once you receive the email, click the button from the email to confirm your account, and create your password.
You'll know you're already in the virtual event hub if your screen looks something like this:
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 out the details later by clicking the Edit Profile button under your name.
