GENERAL

Will I receive a show bag? 

YES!  Make sure you give us permission to send you communication via post on our registration form. 

How long do I need to take off work to attend DPC2020?

We have designed the programme to run over 3 days in manageable chunks of time which are outlined below.

We are asking visitors to reserve the whole morning of each day of the event (08.30 – 14:00) to attend symposia, practical training, round table sessions, networking, and visiting our virtual exhibitors. In the evening we will run a series of symposia in parallel so you can choose which sessions you want to attend.

  • Morning: 08:30 – 14:00
    • this will include keynote, panel and conference sessions running across all streams
    • Don’t miss out on DPC Virtual Community between 11:30 – 13:10 where you will have the opportunity to book onto Round Table Meetings, 1-2-1 meeting with your colleagues from around the UK, association meet ups, and meeting with exhibitors and suppliers
  • Evening: 18:30 – 20:30
    • This will include parallel symposia

Sessions 

What sessions qualify for CPD credits?

We regret that on-demand product demonstrations do not qualify for CPD points at this stage.

After the event, we will send you a survey to complete (this is a requirement made by the CPD Certification Services). Once you filled in the survey,  you will receive your CPD certificate up to a month after the event. 

How do I view sessions? 

Our step by step guide is coming soon and will be sent it to you a few weeks before the event. 

What's the difference between Live and OnDemand sessions?

DPC2020 is offering you two types of sessions: LIVE and OnDemand.

LIVE Sessions

  • These are just like a session at an in-person conference. They occur as show on our conference programme.
  • LIVE Session Speakers will be available in the session (via chat) to interact with the audience and answer questions.

 

OnDemand Sessions

  • These are Training Videos and Product Demonstrations which are available for you to watch anytime beginning November 11 (through December 11 *)
  • If you have questions for OnDemand Speakers or Exhibitors, many are hosting live video Q&A sessions during the conference – check their session for details!

What sessions do I have access to?

You may attend as many or as few sessions as you want. 

How do I ask questions / Interact with speakers? 

For LIVE sessions on Monday or Tuesday: You can ask questions and interact with both the speaker and others attending the session by using the Live Discussion Panel on the right of your screen.

  • To share thoughts and chat with other participants, use the Chat Tab.
  • If you have a question specifically for the speaker, use the Questions Tab.


For On-Demand sessions:

  • Some OnDemand speakers are hosting Live Q&A Video Sessions via Zoom during the conference. Check their session and look for a pink button under the session that says “Questions for the Speaker? Join a Live Video Q&A”
  • You can also find the speaker in the Speaker List and then send them a Connection Request to begin chatting.

Are handouts / slides / toolkits provided for the sessions? 

Some of our speakers are happy to share their content/presentations with the audience – the material we are permitted to distribute will be posted as downloadable resources in the “Documents” sections.  If you don’t see a presentation/resource, it is unavailable for public use.

After the event, all materials will be available on our DPC Digital Hub

How do I complete surveys for sessions?

Look for a survey link in the description section of each session. Please share your opinion, we want to hear from you! 

Will I be able to access sessions after the conference is over? 

Yes, sessions will be available on-demand for 30 days after the conference.

Note: There are a few OnDemand sessions that will not be available for the full 30 days. It will note this at the beginning of the session description if that is the case.

When will I be able to view replays of LIVE sessions? 

Replays of the LIVE sessions will be available beginning Tuesday 17 November.

How do I see what is up next on the agenda? 

Our conference programme will be made available on the DPC website and on SwapCard.
