This year we are making more opportunities for informal networking and connection with peers through SpatialChat – a group video chat platform.
Like a physical event, SpatialChat brings participants together in one space and allows multiple conversations to take place at the same time. Through the ‘proximity sound’ functionality, you can move around the room to drop in and out of conversations taking place between peers. By moving your avatar closer to or further away from participants, you can take part in large, small or 121 conversations with anyone else in the room.
In addition to networking rooms, we are using SpatialChat to host our virtual exhibition. At dedicated times participants can visit the exhibition hall to engage with our Official Partners and exhibitors at their stands located around the room. Find out more about the exhibition here.
SpatialChat will be open at 9.30am for informal networking before the main conference content begins, as well as during breaks and over lunch.
A tutorial about how to use SpatialChat can be viewed below.
