Frequently Asked Questions

The app does not recognize my email address and I cannot get into the app. What should I do?

Only registered attendees can log in to the app. If you have not registered for the Conference, you will see an error message that says your username or password is incorrect (your email address is considered both your username and password). If you have registered for the Conference and are still not able to log in to the app, email Nick Mattar at Please provide your name, title, company and the email address associated with your registration.

Should I enable Push Notifications?

If you accidentally select “Do Not Allow,” you can enable push notifications in your device’s Notification Center, which is located in the main settings page.
