Schedule

Digital Ticket 2017 Conference Schedule

Note: All times are in Central Standard Time.

This is our first year to attempt and stream out sessions so please be understanding if things don't go quite as planned.

This year we will have a limited selection of sessions that will be available to virtual attendees but we hope to provide more next year if all goes well.

All sessions listed in room 717 will be available virtually as well as the session at 10:40 in room 708A.

The session in room 708A is presented by Voicethread and you will need to pre-register your username at

https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8862687523334837250

You will then receive an email with your login information.

For all of the sessions in room 717 we will use a Zoom meeting room provided by VTEL.

The Zoom Meeting ID for the virtual session will be 512 535 1948.  Participants (up to 49) will simply need to go to www.zoom.us in their browser, then click on "Join a Meeting", then enter that Meeting ID.  First time users may also need to do some minor audio and video configuration for their device.
