VIRTUAL CONFERENCE MEETING WEEKLY ON WEDNESDAYS SEPTEMBER 23 - OCTOBER 28 9:30AM - 12:30PM


#ghhnvcon20

Welcome to the 2020 GHHN Virtual Conference! We’re so glad you’re here.


We are using the virtual platform Hopin for our Virtual Conference - when you register for the weekly sessions of the Virtual Conference, you'll create a free Hopin profile. You'll use this Hopin profile to access the weekly events. Hopin will send a reminder email 24 hours and 1 hour prior to the Virtual Conference weekly sessions you’ve signed up for. You can click on the link in the email and it will take you directly into the weekly session.

Once you’re logged in, you’ll land in the Reception Area. At the left of your screen you should see the 4 distinct Conference Areas - Stage, Sessions, Networking, and Expo. You will navigate to each area by simply clicking on them. Each weekly session will begin with a welcome on the Stage at 9:30 AM EST. Priscilla and Kerry from GHHN will kickoff the Conference in the Weekly Welcome along with a special welcome from one of our Platinum Partners. After the presentation on the Stage is complete, there will be a pre-recorded video to explain how the Virtual Conference works.

All areas of the Conference have dedicated 'chat boxes'. There is an AllConference Chat that everyone in the Conference can see, Session-specific Chats that can only be seen when you are in the sessions, and booth chats, which can only be seen when you are in that specific expo booth. GHHN will use the All-Conference Chat to send messages to all attendees. You can also connect directly with others who are in the Virtual Conference by navigating to the "People" tab, and clicking on someone's name. From there, you can view their profile, send a direct message (when you have a direct message, a notification will appear up next your profile picture as a red dot in the envelope icon), or even invite them to a one on one video chat.

Make sure to visit our Virtual Exhibitors! At 9:40 AM EST, the Expo booths will also be available. There are two ten minute "coffee breaks' at 10:20 AM EST and 11:10 AM EST. At 12:00 PM EST, we'll once again direct people to visit the Expo area for a longer stretch. Some of the exhibitors may be 'going live' and will be available to speak with you during these times. If they're not live in their booth, they have provided content and links for you to explore. You can register interest and let them know you've stopped by the booth and would like to follow up with them by clicking on the big blue 'Register Interest' or "Request to Follow Up' button.


#ghhnvcon20

At 9:40AM EST, the sessions will begin in the Sessions area. Simply click into the session you’d like to attend. Some weeks will have concurrent sessions, some wNQQ have just one happening at a time. When you click into a session, you'll be in Viewing Mode by default. Caution! Don't click the "Share Audio and Video" button at the top - that will put you on camera! Make sure to type a 'hello' into the chat so our panelists know who's watching! Towards the end of the session, the session moderator or speaker will open the floor to questions and comments. You can ask questions directly in the chat, or you can request to come up on screen. To go on screen, click the button at the top that says "Share Audio and Video" Clicking this button means you want to participate on live video — people can see and hear you in the session. The session moderators or speakers will work through the queue, allowing people up on screen (only those who choose to) to ask questions.

Some weeks will feature the Networking Area. At the pre-specified time during those weeks, navigate over to Networking, click “Ready" and you will be paired up with another person for a quick video chat (up to 3 minutes). If you both hit “Connect” at the end of the call, then your info will be exchanged digitally so you can follow up later. Other weeks will feature a Museum Trivia Party in the Stage Area, or Forum Discussions (where you can create your own session) - if this occurs during a weekly session you are attending, you’ll see a button saying ‘Create A Session’ at the top of the listed Sessions. Once you fill out the form, your session will be listed right on the weekly schedule for anyone to join!

We want to know what you're thinking during the Virtual Conference - if you're on social media, make sure to share a photo of you, your screen, your thoughts, etc - and tag us @thghhn on all social media platforms. The hashtag for the Virtual Conference is #ghhnvcon20 GHHN Executive Director Priscilla Brendler, GHHN Program Director Kerry Sclafani, and GHHN Conference Monitor Zoe McWhirter will all be on hand to help you out if you have any questions during the Virtual Conference. If you have any technical questions, please send Kerry Sclafani a direct message. We are delighted to have you with us as we explore “Then Now Next: What Does the Future of Museums Look Like?”
