Virtual Experience


IAIA has partnered with Pathable to make IAIA22 an interactive virtual conference experience for both in-person and virtual attendees. The platform can be used seamlessly across your devices—data syncs between your desktop portal and mobile app. The opening and closing plenaries and all theme forums will be livestreamed to the virtual platform and recorded for online viewing. In-person and virtual attendees will be able to chat and interact in real time during these live sessions via the mobile app and desktop portal. Plus, questions can be posted at any time, even after the session has occurred, for ongoing discussion.

Take advantage of the virtual networking opportunities offered throughout IAIA22. Both in-person and virtual delegates can participate in virtual coffee breaks, viewing of recorded presentations, and visiting the online exhibitors.


Access to the livestreamed and pre-recorded presentations will be available to both in-person and virtual attendees through 4 June.


The Mobile App and Desktop Portal are available a few days before IAIA22 opens.


Virtual platform: IAIA will email registered delegates with access details and login instructions.


Mobile App: You will be notified when the app is available to download in Google Play or the App Store.

You must be a registered attendee to be able to view the restricted portions of the app such as attendee and speaker contact details.

Use the Desktop Portal, the Mobile App, or both to:


  • Help others find you—complete your profile and upload a photo.
  • Search for sessions, speakers, and attendees.
  • Select your favorite sessions and create your personal agenda.
  • Download speaker handouts.
  • Take notes and send them to yourself.


Attending in person? Receive instant notifications of program changes on-site.


Virtual attendee? Watch livestreamed sessions via the desktop portal for best quality and interaction.


The plenaries and theme forums are in-person sessions livestreamed to the virtual platform. Virtual and in-person delegates can interact in the session chat function in real time during livestreamed events. Participate in live polls, post your questions, and meet other delegates.



Virtual coffee breaks

Join fellow delegates (both virtual and in-person) for networking, exchanging ideas, and making new friends. These casual, Zoom-based conversations are a chance for delegates to connect live throughout the week. Each break will be hosted by an IAIA member with a conversation starter, but everyone is welcome to introduce new topics into the discussion. Join through the event links in Pathable.
