    Frequently Asked Questions

    How will we access to the virtual conference platform?
    There are a number of details to work out as we plan the virtual conference. Once I2SL's virtual landing page is live later this summer, everyone who registered will receive an email with credentials allowing you to set up an account with vFairs, the virtual host, and that becomes your "ticket" to enter. We will email all registrants when they are going to receive credentials. If you donít receive them within a week, contact I2SL to check your status. No special software is required to be downloaded; you will access vFairs and watch presentations just as you do with online videos and webinars like Zoom.

    Can I share, transfer, or cancel my registration?
    Your registration is unique to you and based on your email; no sharing or logging on from multiple locations at once is allowed. If your email changes for any reason, your login will still work but you will miss important conference announcements and the ability to reset your password if you forget it. If necessary to transfer a registration, I2SL can process a refund and a new registration should be initiated.

    Are there any conference discounts?
    When you start your registration as a speaker, exhibitor, and/or I2SL member, the system will recognize your status and automatically calculate a reduced rate. If you qualify for a promotional code, are speaking, or have been offered a free registration, I2SL will have emailed you the promotional code for registration purposes; contact I2SL if you feel you require a code. If you qualify for two different rates, say as a speaker or exhibitor, feel free to choose the category that has a cheaper rate. Please note: There will be no one-day registrations this year, nor free registrations to only visit the Exhibit Hall.

    Attendee List Phishing Alert

    Don't be fooled by emails or phone calls from people trying to sell you I2SL attendee lists. We are not working with any outside vendors (except vFairs, our virtual conference provider), nor do we sell our attendee lists to third parties. We only share our attendee lists with exhibitors prior to the conference for onsite networking and marketing purposes, and please know that our websites and databases are secure.

    All official 2020 I2SL Conference correspondence will come from info@i2sl.org or i2sl@erg.com or from someone at vfairs.com.

    Any emails claiming conference attendee lists for sale should be ignored as any SPAM message you receive. Should you receive any emails of concern, please contact I2SL.
