How to navigate venue:

Dear Attendee,


Your event is hosted by Virtual Chair and will take place on the Gather.town platform.  This platform provides a 2D layout in which participants can navigate by moving an avatar using arrow keys.  When a group of avatars are in close proximity, a video conference is started.  Tables and chairs provide private video conferencing space.

*Please note that you must be using either Chrome or Firefox browsers on a computer, and that the use of personal devices such as cell phones and tablets is not supported.
*When signing on for the first time, please allow Gather to access your microphone and camera for the best experience.
