The Backstage Environment: What Presenters Need to Know
  • Once you access the backstage area, in the right-hand chat bar, you should see a “backstage” chat option.  Please stay in this area! Clicking on any other links like “stage” or “reception” will exit you from backstage.  You will then have to reopen your browser with the backstage link.
  • When it is time for you to speak please push the “Join Audio Video” button on the screen – there will be a 10s delay before you are live broadcasting.
  • It is recommended that all presenters participate in the event from the backstage, to minimize confusion. The experience is the same as viewing from the stage, with the added capability of presenting.
  • For technical assistance please email Javier:
