You have been or will be invited to a major event in the virtual 3D world TriCAT spaces Congress. Here you will find preliminary information about TriCAT spaces Congress as well as step-by-step instructions on how to join and navigate the congress room.
1. Technical Check l Upfront the event
In order for you to be able to participate in the virtual event in a relaxed way, you will be invited to a technology check via e-mail system invitation from TriCAT. You will enter a virtual 3D room where you have full avatar interactivity.
Please participate with headset & microphone.
About the system requirements.
2. Invitation email l Account activation
In your invitation email, please click on “Confirm participation”. You will be redirected to a landing page. From there you can optionally activate your account.
Advantage of account activation: you can join any subsequent event with your email address + personal password and upload a profile picture.
3. Download l Enter event
In your e-mail invitation you will find the download link. Please be sure to use this download link, as each event is based on its own version of the TriCAT spaces® Congress program.
In the main menu you can choose an avatar and customize it according to your wishes.
4. Guest access code
If you do not wish to activate your account, please use the guest access code from your email invitation to enter the event. You will receive another guest access code for the main event. After account activation, it will become invalid or redundant.
5. Spectator role in congress room
Unlike the technology check, you first enter the convention room at the main event. There you are in the spectator role and cannot (yet) control your avatar freely.
Via the Event Plan button, you join the parallel events or the breakout sessions from the congress room. There you are immediately in the avatar you have previously selected and enjoy full interactivity. You can speak freely, move freely and interact with objects as well as other participants.
