New! Mark Your Calendar – Schedule for Live Video Chats with Session Speakers Released

The 2020 ASHRAE Virtual Conference features the opportunity to connect with speakers in a live video chat to ask questions about their presentation. 

The live video chats are scheduled for the on-demand technical program sessions, which will be available June 22.  The live video chats are scheduled the following week, giving attendees a week’s time to review the technical program to determine what sessions to participate in.

Each of the technical program sessions are scheduled for a 20-minute chat session.  The session chair and the speakers will be participating in the live video chat sessions.  Attendees will be able to ask questions using the Zoom platform.

See below for the schedule of live video chat sessions.  Only conference registrants will have access to the live video chats.  The links to the sessions will be made available during the week of June 22.
