We are incredibly excited to take this year’s Congress online for the first time in the history of the event.

Our goal with CNU 28.A Virtual Gathering is the same as it’s always been – to convene the dedicated urbanists at the heart of our movement for crucial conversations about the future of our communities. And these conversations are more important now than ever before.

Absent the in-person gathering that we’ve all come to expect and enjoy, the obvious question is what this year’s Congress experience will look like. Here is a brief overview of CNU 28 as a virtual gathering.

DOWNLOADING THE APP

A few days before CNU 28 begins, you’ll get a link to download CNU’s app from both the Apple and Google app stores. If you have an Android Phone and an iPad, feel free to download both so you can experience the Congress conveniently from whatever devices you’re most comfortable with. You will log in and set up your user account, including your professional bio and social media links for networking opportunities. You can browse the agenda, put sessions on your calendar, search the database for other attendees, and interact with CNU and our sponsors.

THE DESKTOP EXPERIENCE

While the mobile app is fully functional and very convenient, we suggest that the easiest way to take part in the Congress, engage with each session, and interact with your colleagues is to access the Virtual Congress website in your computer’s browser. All of the features of the mobile app – full Congress agenda with session descriptions and links to the live sessions, a personal Congress agenda highlighting the sessions you’ve chosen to attend, speaker and sponsor profiles, supporting documents and other files uploaded by presenters, your notes on sessions you’ve attended, etc. – are all available from your tablet, laptop, or desktop computer.

 

 

SESSION EXPERIENCE

Over the past few weeks, you’ve likely attended our On The Park Bench webinars and grown accustomed to using video conferencing platforms like Zoom to keep in touch with clients, coworkers, family, and friends. If so, our live Virtual Congress sessions will feel very familiar! Congress speakers and moderators will present their sessions via Zoom and we encourage all attendees to make use of the Q&A and Chat features built into the platform to engage, ask questions, and connect with both the speakers and fellow attendees.

EXHIBIT HALL & SPONSOR ENGAGEMENT

Just as you’d be able to visit exhibitor tables at an in-person Congress, attendees can visit our virtual exhibit hall to connect with Congress sponsors and exhibitors to learn more about their work and engage with their team.
