View the complete program

This year, we have one main auditorium where all the Connecting the Dots Spotlight Sessions will be happening, with each talk flowing seamlessly into the next one.

Following the first round of sessions, participants can join one of our “Follow the Ripple” sessions, which will provide an opportunity for you to connect with the speakers, ask questions and learn more about the presentations.

Navigating the vFairs event platform

We've created detailed step-by-step instructions on how to navigate and access the vFairs event platform if you are using screen magnification, VoiceOver or screen reading software. Please visit our website to download the documents and/or watch the instructional videos.

If you require technical support, you'll find the ‘Need Help’ button in the top right-hand corner of your screen, or you can stop by the CNIB Hub in Vendor Alley for support.

In Vendor Alley, exhibitors may also be offering sessions and special events for you to participate in. Be sure to visit our virtual vendors and explore their products and services – you might even walk away with some swag!
