The app works on Apple and Android devices and can also be accessed in a web browser.
We recommend downloading the app from the invitation email, which is sent to all registered attendees once the app goes live. This is the easiest way to ensure the app links to your personal record and registration details.
If you cannot find your invitation email, simply contact us to request a new one be sent to you.
The app can also be found by searching for "Midwest Veterinary Conference" in the Apple and Android app stores.
No, you can simply update the existing app.
To protect speaker presentations and notes, we secure the event with a password so that only attendees can access these documents. If you are already registered for the MVC, please check your email for a mobile app download invitation, or log in to your attendee profile to find the password. If you aren't yet registered, you will receive the password in your confirmation email.
The database refers to the email address on your registration to identify you. Therefore, you MUST log in with the same email address you used to register, or the app will not allow you access to your personal registration. The easiest way to ensure the app recognizes you as a registrant is to log in using the email invitation. If you cannot find your email invitation, please contact us and ask to have your app invitation resent.
If you are accessing the app via a web browser, the process is the same, but the link to log in will be at the top right corner of the home page.
It is not necessary to log in to access the app and certain content. However, you will need to log in to the app in order to take advantage of the following personalized and interactive features:
One of the best features of the mobile app is its networking capability! Begin networking with other attendees by first setting up your profile.
If you want to appear on the attendee list but still have control over who can see your full profile, you can set it to visible.
With this setting enabled, only your name, title, company, and photo will be displayed. You'll have to approve another attendee's contact request before they can view your full profile.
If you opt to hide your profile, fellow attendees will not be able to find you on the attendee list at all. Your profile will only be visible to attendees who accept your contact requests.
Be advised, not all Android phones are the same. The directions below walk you through the most common OS, Android 9.0.
Note: If you opt out of push notifications, you will be alerted to any new announcements when you open the app. These messages can be found by tapping the bell icon in the top right corner of the event guide.
IMPORTANT: In order to access or create your own personalized schedule, you MUST log in using the same email you used to register. This is how the system identifies you and links you to your registration.(See "Logging In" section, above.)
NOTE: If you do not see the plus sign, you are NOT logged in correctly. Log out and log in again using the same email you used to register.
Because the app links directly to your individual record,
Therefore, if you cannot add sessions to your schedule (i.e., there is no plus sign to the right of any sessions), this means you are NOT logged in correctly. Log out and log in again using the app invitation email. If you cannot find your email invitation, please contact us and ask to have your app invitation resent.
To access session documents, open the desired session from the Schedule page and scroll down to the Documents section. Tap on the name of the PDF you'd like to view. You can follow along in the app or save the documents directly to your device for later reference.
*NOTE: There are NO notes-printing stations on site at the MVC. If you would like to have a hard copy of your notes and/or presentations, please print them prior to the conference.
Although we strongly encourage speakers to share their notes and presentations with attendees, not all opt to do so. In other cases, a presentation may not be included because the file was too large to include in the app. The web version of the Conference Proceedings will always have every session document provided.
If you created a schedule (either during registration OR in the app via the steps above), you can rate your sessions and speakers by either:
If you did NOT register for sessions or add them to your schedule, you can rate your sessions and speakers by following the steps in the second bullet point above.
Simply tap the "Share Feedback" button on the home screen and then "Feedback Survey" to complete the overall evaluation.
All registered attendees and their guests may participate. Exhibitors are not eligible for prizes but may play if they wish.
In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint, we have eliminated the paper version of the Passport. To participate in the game, you must have a smartphone or tablet with the MVC mobile app installed.
MVC staff moderate the submissions. If your photo was removed, it was either deemed inappropriate or irrelevant to that particular challenge.
