Q: What are the technical and hardware requirements for the Conference Portal?

  • Access to a high-speed internet connection is recommended to support the live stream.
  • IMPORTANT: Some VPNs and organizations will block access to the eventscribe.net domain and the live stream. If you are having difficulty accessing content through your VPN, we recommend logging out of the VPN and back into the Conference Portal. You may also try logging in with your iPhone, Android, or iPad, if you have an alternative device.
