General Event Questions

What is a hybrid event and how can I attend?
The Live! 360 2021 hybrid event experience offers technology professionals a choice in how they wish to participate. We will host both an in-person experience in Orlando, FL. and a virtual experience online.

When you purchase a 5-Day, 4-Day, 3-Day, or Single Day Pass to Live! 360, you can select whether to attend in-person or virtually online.

If you choose the In-Person Pass you will have access to BOTH the in-person workshops, keynotes, sessions, and panel discussions that come with the package you purchase, AND access to all the online recordings that coincide with your Pass until August 1, 2022.

If you choose the Virtual Online Pass, you will have access to all the online and recorded workshops, keynotes, sessions, and panel discussions that come with the package you purchase. You will also have access to that same recorded content until August 1, 2022.

In-Person Event Questions

What health measures/protocols are Live! 360 taking to ensure a safe environment on-site?
Live! 360 is working closely with local health authorities and the Royal Pacific Resort to provide a safe and healthy experience for all in-person conference participants.

Enhanced measures are being implemented in accordance with state and local regulations and following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). PLEASE NOTE that the CDC advises "Vaccines are widely accessible in the United States. Everyone aged 12 years and older should get a COVID-19 vaccination as soon as possible."

Expectations for all seminar participants:

  • Individuals who are immunocompromised or at high risk are encouraged to attend virtually.
  • All event participants are expected to observe and engage in recognized preventative actions to ensure a safe environment, including frequent hand washing.
  • Individuals should not attend the event if they have tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 14 days or if they are concerned that they have been exposed to the virus within the last 14 days and could test positive.
  • Should a conference participant test positive for COVID-19, register a temperature, or become ill during the event, he/she/they should observe recognized quarantining procedures.

If you choose to provide proof of your full vaccination status, you will be exempt from daily temperature checks and daily attestation after the initial COVID-19 test administered by the Conference on your first day.

All in-person participants will be given a COVID-19 test on the first day they attend the event (administered onsite and provided by Live! 360) and must test negative to attend the conference in-person.

Virtual Event Questions

I know I can't get to Orlando this year for Live! 360. Is the Virtual Event worth my time and money?
2021 has been a challenging year for conferences and travel, and we are planning on making the virtual Live! 360 experience as valuable as possible. Hands-on Labs and Workshops will provide virtual attendees the opportunity to ask questions in real-time, while many session speakers will be available after their talks on the virtual platform for online Q&A. Virtual attendees will also have access to special Birds-of-a-Feather lunches with select speakers, exhibit hours with sponsors, interactive tools for networking, and prizes through our Live! 360 Virtual Raffle. You will also have until August 1, 2022 to watch (or re-watch) all of the online recordings that coincide with your Pass.

Converge360 Events has successfully run over 30 virtual seminars and conferences in the last two years with great results and positive feedback from attendees.
