Accessing the OV Conference Online

The OV Conference Online will be managed within a safe and secure Conference Space; ticket holders will be emailed log in details for this in the week before the Conference. Links for live broadcasts will then be made available within the Conference Space, and presentations will be streamed using Zoom. These can be watched on any device with an internet connection, though for the best experience we do recommend using a desktop computer or a laptop.

During the week of the Conference, you will receive a daily email notification reminding you of each day’s programme. There will be 6 talks per day, and plenty of breaks. You can view the full programme by clicking here.

Once logged in to the Conference Space, you will not only be able to join any live sessions but also watch those that have already taken place (every presentation will be recorded and made available to watch them within the next two working days). In addition to this, there will be forums in which to talk to other delegates, as well as exclusive content and offers in our Sponsors’ Area.
