What to Expect at the 59th International Conference - A Virtual Experience

AmSECT is beyond excited to bring you a brand-new virtual experience, featuring high-quality education, virtual networking, time to meet online with forward-thinking profusion professionals, and the Virtual Exhibit Hall where you can connect with organizations.  Take a look at what you can expect at the conference.

The virtual experience will feature about 20 sessions over the course of four days, to be accessed from the comfort of your home or office. While the number of sessions is reduced from our annual in-person conference, you will have access to the virtual session recordings for an extended period of time following the conference, allowing you to learn from all of our knowledgeable speakers.  During the 59th International Conference, you won’t have to choose one session over the other, making for a robust educational experience.

Types of Sessions

    • Curated by the International Conference Planning Committee
    • A mix of pre-recorded and live sessions
    • Dedicated Industry Symposia Blocks

Virtual Exhibit Hall
Through our virtual platform, you will be able to “enter” virtual exhibit booths to meet with Medical Technology, Pharmaceutical, and Education Organizations that serve the ExtraCorporeal Technology field. Through the platform, meet with exhibitors to have conversations, request information about their offerings, schedule a one-on-one meeting, or exchange information to discuss their work at a later point.

The International Conference platform will be available to access in mid-April.

The International Conference platform allows you to ask questions, begin discussions, and connect with fellow attendees throughout the entire event. Each session will include a chat box to allow for easy engagement with the session topic. In addition, the Virtual Exhibit Hall will be continuously open to connect with Medical Technology, Pharmaceutical, and Education Organizations working to advance the ExtraCorporeal Technology field.

The best way to connect with your peers, is by updating your profile! You can upload a photo of yourself and add information about your company, location, interests, skills and more. Your profile information allows you to find other attendees with similar interests. Add your contact information to your profile to build life-long connections. 

What Not to Expect from the International Conference

Just another lengthy Zoom meeting.
Many of our sessions will be pre-recorded, allowing speakers to join in an active chat conversation and answer questions in real-time with attendees.

Limited to the tech-savvy only.
While this experience will go above and beyond the capabilities of Zoom, the video aspects and interactive functions are easy-to-use and don’t require any hefty software downloads. Stay tuned for instructions on how to use the platform.

Full days spent in front of your computer.
The schedule will have built-in breaks for you to answer emails, move around, or grab a cup of coffee (or a snack!). As stated above, all sessions will be recorded and can be viewed for the next three months, allowing you to create an agenda that fits your lifestyle.

Limited to those who have the capability to travel.
This virtual experience will be open to all, without the physical and financial barriers of traveling and booking accommodations in order to attend.
