Managing your time

Your personalised calendar allows you to manage your availability and block out time for meetings, conference sessions, networking and other commitments. 

Meetings

All meetings you accept and those that are accepted by your target organisations will automatically be added to your schedule.

Event Agenda

You can also block out time in your calendar for airline briefings and conference sessions that best align with your objectives, ensuring you don’t miss a thing. To do so, navigate to the Event Agenda section and click on the session you'd like to add, then select the calendar icon in the top right-hand corner.

My Schedule

To watch the sessions you've bookmarked, go to My Schedule on the menu panel on the left-hand side of the screen. At the date and time of the session you are attending, click the Watch Live Stream button to access the session.

On-demand

All timings listed in the event agenda and your schedule will be shown in your local time zone. If you are unable to join a conference session, be sure to still add it to your schedule. After the session or briefing has taken place it will be available to view on-demand, so you can watch it at a convenient time for you.
