Frequently asked questions

We understand that the world of virtual events is a new one, so we have put together a series of FAQs to make things clearer.

If you have a question that isn’t covered below please contact us at customerservices@peimedia.com and a member of our team will get back to you.

1

So, What is it?

    • The Private Equity Real Estate Forum virtual platform will replicate all the best parts of the in-person conference experience.
    • You can:

    • Watch live panel sessions happening and ask questions of the speakers.
    • Watch and download select recordings of the sessions at a time more convenient for you, with On-demand playbacks for selected sessions for up to 6 months after the event ends.
    • Network with both local and global attendees.
    • Participate in virtual roundtables and networking rooms to discuss the topics that matter to you with like-minded peers.

If you are having problems accessing the platform, email eventsteam@peimedia.com

2.

How do I access the platform?

The platform will launch 2 weeks prior to the event. As a registered attendee, you will be sent a unique link to access the platform. That link is unique and cannot be shared with anyone else.
3.

How will I know how to use the platform?

We have a dedicated “Hot it works” page to help you navigate the web app. The advantage of having access a few weeks out is that we can help you iron out any issues you might be having with plenty of time before the event
4.

Do I need to sit in front of my laptop all day or all night?

No. There will be live content (which is where you can take part in live Q&As) and select sessions will be made on demand for an additional 6 months, so you can watch sessions at a time convenient to you.
5.

I have watched enough webinars over the past 6 months, why would I want to watch more?

    • We hear you – which is why we have structured the platform to ensure you are part of the conversation.
    • You will be able to:

    • Ask questions of panel speakers during the session
    • Spend time face-to-face via video conference with speakers to ask questions after the session
    • Join roundtables to discuss the topics that matter to you with like-minded peers
    • Focused networking breaks where you can discuss the strategies and opportunities you are interested in
    • Pop in to sponsor booths to connect via video and discuss their offerings or a presentation that they just gave

If you are having problems accessing the platform, email eventsteam@peimedia.com

6.

What if I forget that a session I want to attend is on?

You can build your own person agenda within the platform and opt-in to receive notifications when sessions are about to begin.
7.

Is “virtual networking” just a buzzword for direct messaging or email?

Absolutely not! The virtual platform will feature direct messaging functionality, but it also has in-built video conferencing that allows you to invite other people into a single meeting. Just select your potential business partner/s from the attendee list and invite them to chat.
8.

What about the timezone difference? How do I set meetings on my timezone?

The platform shows available meeting times as per your computer timezone. For example if you are based in London, a meeting you set for 4 pm you’re your account will show to a recipient in New York as 11 am.
It is worth nothing that event timings will be running on British Summer Time (BST) which is BST +1.
