Virtual Access FAQs


What will the conference platform look like?
The conference will be presented over a trusted professional events platform. If you’ve used any video conferencing solution in the past, this platform will offer similarly recognizable tools. The 2021 Conference platform mockup is coming soon! Check out the 2020 Conference platform mockup below. Questions about how to use the platform?

What is new about the 2021 conference?
Just like in 2020, the 2021 Vision Federal Market Forecast Conference will be held virtually! The online conference will allow everyone in the PSC community to participate safely. On December 1st and 2nd, attendees will be able to engage with and participate in as many sessions as they would in a traditional on-site conference.

How long is the virtual conference?
The 2021 Virtual Vision Conference will run 7 hours per day. From 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

What is the difference between "Scheduled Sessions" and "On-Demand Sessions"?
 "Scheduled Sessions" will air on the virtual platform live at a designated time on December 1st and 2nd. The time that these sessions will air will be indicated on the agenda page on the virtual platform.  "On-Demand Sessions" will be available for viewing on the platform at any time starting on December 1st. 

Will I have Post-Conference Access to all "Scheduled Sessions" and "On-Demand Sessions"?
Yes! There will be Post-Conference Access to all "Scheduled Sessions" from December 1st and 2nd, as well as the "On-Demand Sessions". These recordings will be made available for two months following the conference. You will access these recordings on the same platform and in the same manner that you accessed the day of sessions. Please allow up to an hour for the recordings to be made available on the virtual platform. 

How will the "Scheduled Sessions" work?
Just like an in-person conference, the "Scheduled Sessions" will begin at specific scheduled times. Speakers will present through a live video stream that will begin automatically once you’ve clicked your individual access link. As an attendee, you will have access to a variety of widgets on that same screen including Group Chat, Q&A and handouts. You will be set to listen-only mode (muted and without the ability to share your webcam). Once registered, we will provide more direct and detailed guidelines for navigating this virtual experience.

When will the agenda be available?
Our conference agenda and list of speakers is now available in the 'agenda' tab of this website.  But check back frequently as sessions and speakers can change!

Can I share my registration link with another member of my team?
No, the registration link cannot be shared. The virtual platform is designed to send registrants unique links to access the 2021 Virtual Vision Conference. This means that only paid registrants will have access.

What if I need support during the conference?
If any support is needed, please email events@pscouncil.org so we can troubleshoot for you.

Do I need to have a webcam to attend in the virtual conference?
No, you do not need a webcam to attend the virtual conference. You will be in listen-only mode.

Are there social media hashtags for the 2021 Virtual Annual Conference?
Yes! Use #PSCvision2021 on your social media posts and don't forget to tag @PSCspeaks on Twitter!

Are there sponsorship opportunities available for this conference?
Yes, sponsorships are still available. Our events could not be possible without the support of our membership. Contact sponsorship@pscouncil.org for more information.
