Where is the PANIC 2020 Conference being held?

The Conference will be a virtual event. You can attend and participate from the comfort of your home or office.

What exactly is a virtual conference?

A virtual conference is an interactive online conference, workshop, user meeting and trade show that brings together a group of people with similar interests or expertise so that they can learn from one another. Similar to live conferences, they are very engaging but occur entirely online rather than in a physical location.

I have already registered for the live conference.  What will happen to my conference registration?

If you are already registered for the live conference, you won't have to do anything. All of the conference registrations will become registrations for the PANIC 2020 virtual conference. Additionally, there will be no change in the cost of your registration fee.

I haven’t registered for PANIC 2020 yet. How do I register?

You can register on-line here by the October 13th deadline.

If I am attending the conference virtually, do I need to download anything to view the conference?

We are in the process of finalizing the event platform. Once that is available you will receive instructions directly.

Will conference materials be provided for virtual registrants?

Conference materials will be provided electronically and will be available for download through the virtual platform.

Can I cancel my PANIC 2020 registration?

Should you need to cancel your registration, you must submit your request for a cancellation in writing via e-mail no later than four (4) weeks prior to the first day of the event in order to receive a refund minus a $100 processing fee. No cancellation requests will be taken by phone. Cancellation requests received less than four (4) weeks prior to the first day of the event are not eligible for a refund. In the event of an emergency, cancellation requests will be reviewed by the PANIC board on a case by case basis.

If I am registered as a virtual attendee will I be eligible for the door prizes or Spectrum game?

Yes. We are planning to have a virtual gamification aspect for the virtual attendees to win prizes.
