What is an ENGAGE hub?
The ENGAGE hub is a space for a virtual delegate of the ASM to attend in person and connect with their local community. They are open to registered delegates only with you being able to nominate an ENGAGE hub and your attendance at the time of registration. There is a fee to attend an ENGAGE hub.
ENGAGE hubs will be open for plenary sessions and select concurrent sessions with this streamed on the big screen. ENGAGE hubs are highlighted in the scientific program by .
At other times we encourage you to join with delegates, watch and engage with sessions via your laptop, join in live Q and A and panel discussions and network. Please note ENGAGE hubs will not host or be open for workshops.
ENGAGE hubs will host the College Ceremony for each state, territory and/or region.
Due to COVID-19 social distancing restrictions, please note that numbers may be restricted for ENGAGE hubs so we encourage you to register early.
