Tech Support & Platform Tips for Attendees

M&A East includes two separate, but connected technologies:

  1. The M&A East Platform: your hub to schedule/join meetings; manage your calendar and navigate to all conference activities. 
  2. The Ballroom / DealLounge (which you access from the Platform). 
    - You will be asked to create two log-ins and 2 profiles/photos.  Once created they'll be saved for the duration. (Separate from your ACG Log In Credentials)
    - We recommend using a lap or desktop with Chrome for the best experience.

  • The Platform is your Hub to access Virtual M&A East: Your Profile, Agenda, Attendees, Calendar, Meetings, etc. If you've been scheduling mtgs, this is the same login, otherwise use the email you registered with & create a login.

  • To Join a meeting
    • Navigate to My Calendar on the Platform, select the meeting. Click "Join" (Before the actual start of the meeting it will say "Starts in 20 hours," for example.
      • Meeting links are valid for one-time use. Don't click the link until the meeting time!
      • To invite additional people to a meeting, you can "invite others" from All Requests & Mtgs, click your Accepted Meetings Tab or simply forward the calendar invite (if you did not initiate the meeting).
      • Troubleshooting:
        My link doesn't work: Go to Search/Request, find the party you are meeting with and call/text their mobile or office to arrange a meet up via method of your choice.
        Didn't show up: reach out to them directly or reschedule

    • Networking happens before and after the program, but automatically shuts down during the program.
