Attendees that have secured a Confirmed spot need to check in for their session at least 10 minutes before the start time by clicking the "Join session" button on the session page in their BANFFXchange agenda or via their BANFFXchange calendar. If you’re late, your spot might be given away to someone on the standby list.  

Attendees with a pre-selected Standby spot should click on the "Join session" button for their selected standby session in BANFFXchange agenda or BANFFXchange calendar and check in at the session Zoom room no later than 10 minutes before the first pitching time in the session (unless they have a session with another host booked). Standby attendees should try to stay until the end of the session, in case the last meeting becomes available due to a no-show, or in case the host is able and willing to stay a little later to meet with them.
