April 19th – 21st, 2021

Your Virtual Host: the University of Toronto

Can the Event chat be seen in all areas of HERUG SAP 2021?

Yes, if you type in the Event chatbox, with the exception of the Networking area. However, in all other areas of the platform (e.g. Sessions, Stage and Expo) there is a designated chatbox for that session, presentation and booth, respectively.

Event says it starts at 8:15 AM (EST) – when can I enter the event?

You will be allowed access to the event 15 minutes before the start time. Once in, don’t be shy! Be as vocal as you would like in the Events chatbox – come and introduce yourself to our speakers and the other attendees. Do share your Linkedin and Twitter profile too, and have fun networking!

How do I know which sessions are happening now?

Simply go to the Reception area (basically the digital lobby of HERUG SAP 2021!), and you will see what’s happening right now (under Schedule) below the logos of our generous sponsors.

Will the talks be recorded?

All Sessions will be recorded. Each day, recordings will be uploaded to the HERUG 2021 website for viewing.

Can I private message someone?

Yes, you can! Simply click on the “People” tab, search for the person’s name and click on it. You will now be able to message that person privately.

You also have the option to invite them to a one-on-one video chat. Once you have received a message, you will see a red dot next to the name of that person.

What can you find in the EXPO?

Meet and converse with our sponsors in real-time at their virtual booths.  You can watch their videos, read their promotional materials and chat with them in real-time.

What is NETWORKING for?

This is pretty much like a professional chat roulette! You get paired into a one-on-one meeting with a person (by random) for up to 3 minutes. Once the time is up, Hopin automatically moves you to the next person. If both of you decide to connect during the session, you will be able to exchange a digital business card into your profile!
