Virtual Benefits Fair: October 19-23

Virtual Benefits Fair: October 19-23

This year’s Benefits Fair will still take place, but like other gatherings in 2020, it has been transitioned to a virtual format. From October 19-23, you can visit the Virtual Benefits Fair and check out our vendors’ booths in the Exhibit Hall and hear from experts during live, virtual presentations from the experts in the Auditorium.

You must register in order to attend! 

Good news—registering is extremely simple! When you visit the Virtual Benefits Fair, you will see a button in the top center of the screen that says “Register”—click it! You will provide your first and last names, email address, and institution. That’s it! No password required, and nothing new for you to remember! After you register, you will need to login simply by entering your email address. Once you’re logged in, you can see the schedule of events under “Program and Speakers” and you can add events to your calendar to hear from the vendors you are interested in.

There will be live presentations every day at 10:00 AM and 12:00 PM. If you are not available during these times, no problem! All presentations will be recorded and you can watch them whenever it’s convenient for you. If you have a few moments available at 1:15 PM and have a question for CVS Caremark about pharmacy benefits, login and use the chat feature to ask them your question! All vendors will be available via chat Monday through Friday from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM.

I know many of us love the Benefits Fair every year thanks to the "swag bag" we walk away with. You will be able to virtually collect information from any vendor and place it in your "swag bag” and then email the contents to yourself before you leave. (We get it…this is a down side of the virtual world, but we’re giving it our best effort!)

Please visit the Virtual Benefits Fair today to register. There is an excellent FAQ at the bottom of the home screen that I would highly recommend you explore. The fair will open on Monday morning, October 19th for you to begin “walking around” and exploring.
