Are there technical requirements for the Bizzabo system that I should be aware of?
System requirements: You can check if your system can use the Bizzabo Virtual Experience with our Quick Tech Check. (If you are having trouble getting into any sessions or into the platform, it usually is because it is the incorrect browser)
- Sessions can only be accessed through a desktop or laptop device. Mobile devices and tablets are not supported by the platform.
- Windows 7 and above, running Chrome, Firefox or Edge. Internet Explorer is not supported
- MacOS 10.9 or later, running Chrome and Firefox. Safari is not supported
- Use an updated version of Chrome
To avoid any video and sound issues, make sure to log out of any other video conferencing platform and clear your cache and cookies.
If you are utilizing a MacOS and utilizing Chrome, you may have to copy and paste the smart link directly into your browser or else it won’t work.
I am presenting, should I log in differently?
Yes, all presenters should be utilizing their speaker portal links to enter the sessions they are speaking at.
How do I join a session as an attendee?
To join a session, go to USASBElaunch.org and go to the Agenda page. From there, ensure you are logged in and then join a session in progress.
How can I add a session that I would like to attend to my calendar?
You can add any session to your calendar by entering the session's page from the agenda and selecting the "Add to Calendar" button. This will add the session to your calendar so you can click the link in the calendar invitation and join the session at the appropriate time.
If I am attending in person and decide that I would like to attend a session virtually instead, how can I access the sessions?
If at any point you would like to access a session from your hotel room, or a chair in the lobby, you can do so by logging into the Bizzabo platform and selecting the session of choice. All in-person attendees have the ability of either joining a session in the room or from their laptop.
What is a Magic Link and how does it work?
Emails from the Bizzabo platform include Magic Links that will automatically log you into the platform - allowing you to bypass the manual logging in process.
How do I know if I am logged in?
You will know if you are logged in if you can see your photo in the upper right corner of the screen. If you are not logged in - go to the Agenda page and select Log In on the right side of the screen. You will be prompted to enter the email address that you registered with. This will send email verification to you and log you into the system. If you have any troubles logging into the system, please send firstname.lastname@example.org an email for assistance.
