Are you prepared for RootsTech 2023? If not, you still have time to virtually be ready the moment the 2023 hybrid conference goes live in just #3 DAYS!
Why You should Attend Virtually
If you happen to live locally, of course, it is possible to do a walk-in registration. However, most of us don’t have that luxury, so here are some tips about virtual attendance.
- It’s a great educational experience. There are 304 online classes this year plus 205 in-person sessions. [NOTE: Many of the in-person sessions will not be recorded for future viewing. ]
- The Expo Hall (yes, it will be virtually accessible) has 155 exhibitors plus 23 sponsors! Browsing the booths is not only fun, but there are often excellent ‘conference special’ prices on offer.
What Do You Need to Do?
Registering is simple. If you’ve attended RootsTech in the past OR you have a FamilySearch account, either can be used to sign up to attend the virtual side of the conference. Did I mention that it’s FREE? It can’t get any better than that!
First, go to the RootsTech website.
Look at the top right corner for the registration button.
Click on the RootsTech 2023 tab and a drop down menu will open. The first choice is Registration. Fill out the form and you are good to go.
Next, be sure you are signed in and then choose the ON Demand button. Filter your choices to 2023 if you only want to view the list of this year’s sessions.
Notice the + sign in the right corner of each class description? That is the button to “Add to My Playlist.” Click on it and the session will be added to your list for future viewing.
If you change your mind, or want to delete it from the list after you’ve viewed the class, just hit the button a second time and it will delete the session from your playlist. Very simple to use.
You can actually set up your playlist this very minute. You just can’t view the talks until the conference goes live.
That’s all there is to it!
Watch for my posts during the conference as I, too, experience the virtual conference this year. I will also have my review of the Expo Hall when the live conference closes.
