I pre-registered in March. Do I need to register again?
Nope! Your registration automatically transfers to the virtual show at no extra cost to you.
How will I access the virtual event?
Each morning of the show you will receive an email with a link directly to the MPF Virtual Convention and Trade Show. You will click on the link and log-in using the email address you provided with your MPF registration.
Will exhibitors have booths?
YES! Nearly 75% of our exhibitors are excited to participate in MPF’s virtual trade show and will be ready to meet with you in their booths! Search by company name, product/service, or even company representative name.
Sponsors will also have a special “showcase area” you can visit.
How will I communicate with exhibiting companies?
You can communicate via real-time text chat or video chat with their booths in the Exhibit Hall. You can even request to schedule a meeting! You can also take email exhibitors (and other attendees) in a secure fashion.
Will I be able “see” other attendees?
At the bottom of the screen will be an “attendees” Icon. Click this icon and you can see who’s registered and say hi via live chat!
Do you have a full schedule/agenda?
Yes – find it here as well as posted in the Lobby of the virtual show.
16+ hours of education? Wow! Do I have to be at my computer all day?
Nope! You can come and go on your own schedule. If you can’t make some of the education sessions live, you can catch the entire program on demand through August 31!
Will I need to sign up to attend a specific education session?
No need to sign up for specific sessions! You are welcome to view any and all education presentations – whether you are an attendee or an exhibitor.
What if I’m busy August 12-13?
