Virtual Trade Show Hall

You can click on “Virtual Hall” in the menu at the top of the website, or enter the hall through the agenda section of the website. The site will become available at 5:20 pm EST on November 16th.

When you enter the virtual hall you can explore different exhibits, as if you were at a real trade show. You control the navigation with your mouse or screen and can choose which content you want to click on.

Between 5:20 – 5:45 pm EST on November 16th and 17th you will see available chat icons at each exhibit. When clicked, you will enter a Microsoft Teams Meeting Room, where you can chat live with a product expert.

No, each exhibit will have an option for you to enter a French-speaking chat room. If an exhibit only has one chat icon, you can expect the product expert to be bilingual.

The hall is a website. So you can close your browser tab and visit https://www.canadianarchitecturalsymposium.com/ to get back to the symposium homepage.

All sessions, including live presentations will be recorded and can be found on the Agenda page within two days of the life presentation.

  1. Go to the Agenda Page and select Join Session to access Microsoft Teams Meeting.
  2. That’ll open a web page, where you’ll see two choices: Download the Windows app and Join on the web instead. If you join on the web, you can use either Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome. Your browser may ask if it’s okay for Teams to use your mic and camera. Be sure to allow it so you’ll be seen and heard in your meeting.
  3. Enter your name and choose your audio and video settings. If the meeting room (or another device that’s connected to the meeting) is nearby, choose Audio off to avoid disrupting. Select Phone audio if you want to listen to the meeting on your mobile phone.
