Tips and Tricks for App and Hub

The PDFs above are probably the easiest way to find in-person presentations, but to watch virtual presentations you will need to use the Attendee Hub. Use the day and category filters to narrow your search when browsing all sessions. If you are searching by speaker name, in particular, you may find them easier to locate on the App. The Cvent Event App is available in the App Store or Google Play, and then search AFS or AFS151 to load our meeting.
