ATD Virtual Conference Experience
How does this event work?
The ATD Virtual Conference will be very similar to an ATD live conference, minus the sore feet. There will be more than 100 hours of content, falling within 11 learning tracks, as well as opportunities to network, connect with ATD Staff, and download resources that you can view off-line.

ATD will recommend personalized learning journeys that include curated sessions based on your interests and focus. Or you can create your own learning pathway by reviewing our session listings and building your schedule on your own time.

Don’t worry if you can’t watch all 100+ hours of content within five days. Access to the content will be available for 90 days.
What will the program include? When will it be available?
We are currently working with well-known subject matter experts to bring quality presentations on the latest L&D trends and insights to this event. Speakers and sessions are being confirmed, and as the program updates are available, information will be available on the website. These updates will be made as they are ready so that the complete program is available by early May.

The programming will consist of a mix of 5 keynote presentations, 25+ facilitated sessions (the speaker will participate in a live, moderated Q&A within the session room), and 100+ on-demand sessions.

On demand sessions will be available for viewing any time throughout the event, and all live sessions will be recorded and available on demand after the session, so you can view at the times most convenient to you.

You will also have the opportunity to interact with speakers during live facilitated sessions, during networking opportunities throughout the week, in addition to the live Q&A.
Will the sessions be recorded for those in different time zones?
All sessions (100+ hours of content) will be accessible 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. There will be an additional 25+ live sessions, scheduled for multiple time zones, throughout the week. These sessions will be recorded and posted to the platform for later viewing.
Will there be networking?
Yes! Through our virtual platform, you will have the ability to connect with fellow attendees in many ways.

Before the conference, you will receive a link to set up your profile within the virtual platform. We recommend that you upload a photo and link to your social media accounts. You’ll also be asked questions about your interests and experience, which will help match you with sessions you might like to see and with attendees who have similar interests.

Connect with us and share your experiences using #ATDVirtualConference on all channels.

Choose from many chat groups, centered around specific topics, that will be ongoing throughout the conference. You can join the discussion within each session where you can talk with fellow attendees about the content. And unique to this online event is the ability to have one-on-one conversations.
