When does the event begin/end?

  • The NAFEMS 2010 Virtual Conference will be a two day event, running from approximately 10:00ET until 6:00pm ET (New York) on November 15-16, 2010.

What if I am unable to attend two full days of online sessions?

  • The sessions from the NAFEMS 2010 Virtual Conference will be recorded and available for viewing the next day, so you will have an opportunity to view and/or review any important presentations that you may have missed.

What is a virtual conference facility and how does it work?

  • Please visit on the following site to watch a brief video of ON24s virtual conference facility:    

I have never attended a virtual conference. What are the system requirements and how will I be able to tell if I can attend, and/or what is required for me to attend:

  • You may visit the following site to test out your system and determine what is required on your part to attend the virtual conference. Because ON24 works with many different companies and organizations who are on secured networks, their conference facility requires no additional installations and should work on nearly everyone's computer.
