You might have questions if this is your first virtual event or if you've attended one before, we've got answers.

AAOA Virtual Rental Housing Conference & Expo is being held exclusively online. Experience this real-time event from the comfort of your home!

By purchasing a ticket to the AAOA Virtual Rental Housing Conference & Expo you'll be provided with a unique username and password along with the website where you'll be logging in on the day of the event. On the day of the event you'll visit the website, enter your username and password, and have the day to attend live streaming speakers and workshops as well as virtually meet exhibitors who specialize in serving the needs of property management.

No! There is nothing to download or install. This live event will be accessible from any device with Internet access. While it will work on mobile, we do suggest using a larger device for a better experience.

While the 2-day event is live, purchasing a ticket for both days will entitle you to access all keynote speakers, workshops, and exhibitors for 30 days on demand. This means you come back to the event and explore at your leisure for 30 days after the live event.

Tickets are valid for only one person (or computer) and will not allow multiple logins. If you have multiple people that would like to attend from different locations, each person will need their own ticket.

While the event is virtually presented online, all speaking engagements are live. Just like an in-person conference you will not be able to rewind or pause a live speaker. However, the 2-day pass includes 30 days of on demand access allowing you to rewatch, rewind, and pause any of the workshops plus visit the trade show floor.

The event will offer opportunities to interact via chat, phone, and video chat. If you’d like to video chat with a fellow attendee or an exhibitor, you’ll both have the option to do so. All live streaming events will be one-way video only displaying just the speaker.

Yes, depending on the speaker a question and answer period may be provided. It will be up to the speaker and/or moderator to select questions to be answered. Please note due to time constrictions not all questions may be answered.

Like a live event, the number of available tickets is being limited to ensure a better experience for everyone. Doing so will ensure live streaming of speakers will run smoothly and exhibitors will be able to provide a more personalized experience.
