2020 Attendee Information

Watch the Virtual Conference Preview Video!

It's Time to Get Ready for the Virtual Conference!

On Tuesday, October 20, you will receive an email with the link to log in to the conference. As we prepare, we want to provide you with important information and helpful tips, including how to join and navigate our live virtual platform.

Before the conference begins, you may want to log in to the Attendee Service Center to review or change the sessions you’ve selected to attend. If you have not yet selected your sessions, there’s still time to decide. If you change your mind, you can select a different session at any time. In addition, session recordings will be available the day after they are presented and will be available for 90 days after the conference.

GAME ROOM: ILA’s Passport to Prizes is back with a twist -- this year, all exhibitors will participate! You will collect points while visiting the exhibit hall. When you enter a booth, look for the Earn Game Points at the bottom of the screen. While you’re collecting your points, be sure to check in with our exhibitors -- the conference wouldn’t be possible without them.
