The concept of the Expo provides an opportunity for you to consolidate meetings with many of the suppliers and industry sponsors you would meet with during the year to one convenient time. It also provides an opportunity for a limited number of exhibitor representatives to visit with you and other pharmacy colleagues. During the Expo, the exhibitor representatives will rotate through the virtual room, approximately every 5 minutes, where they will describe their company/products/services and provide you with materials.

Please log in no later than noon. When you enter the meeting, you will first be placed in a “waiting room”, and we will bring you into the meeting room shortly. Once you are admitted, you will need to click “Call using Internet Audio” or “Dial in”, depending on personal preference (“Call using Internet Audio” is recommended if you have a microphone on your computer/device).

After each presentation, you will be placed into a separate “breakout room” with other attendees during the break time, while we prepare the next speaker. Feel free to use this time to chat/network with other attendees, or make use of the break time! We will announce the exact time that the next presentation will start (usually about 10 minutes later), and will then place you back into the “main” Zoom room to view the next presentation.

In order not to distract the presenters, attendees will only be able to chat with the hosts of the meeting (NDSHP staff). We will collect any questions asked via chat, and present those questions to the presenters if there is time at the end of their presentation.

If you experience any technical issues, it is first recommended to leave/close out of the Zoom meeting, and then re-enter the meeting, or call 320-583-5233.
