What are the recruiting hours and when are they held?

Recruiting hours are the time we invite attendees who are seriously looking for new roles to come to the expo halls when there is a little less traffic to encourage recruiters to have longer 1:1 conversations

Recruiting hours will take place Wednesday, November 10th from 8:00am-12:00pm PST

What if my company’s firewall is preventing me from joining the AfroTech Conference platform?

If you have specific firewall call outs please reach out to ATsponsordesign@blavity.com and afrotechcs@blavity.com to help support you as much as possible. The platform is a secured site and due to our partner’s privacy, we will have special firewalls set up to also ensure strong network performance. 

Can I get a list of attendees that visit my booth or sponsored space?

Unfortunately, we’re unable to provide attendee contact information. However, you are able to share your own internal intake form within your booth or sponsored space to collect contact information for attendees you interact with at AfroTech Conference.

Will we offer training on how to use the AfroTech Conference platform?

Yes, we will release onboarding guides in late October, which will include training videos, best practices, and walkthroughs of the campus.

When will sponsors get access to the AfroTech Conference platform?

The Sponsor Open House will take place the week of 11/1

What are the system and hardware requirements for AfroTech Conference?

We will be sharing updated system and hardware requirements later in Q3 to ensure a smooth and enjoyable AfroTech Conference experience. Click here for the 2021 system and hardware requirements for reference.

How can we access a list of other booth holders, so we can determine who we don’t want to be next to?

We will not make final booth assignments until late October. Feel free to share a list of any companies that you do not wish to be near, and we will do our best to place you in a different location. For privacy reasons, we cannot share the list of the other companies that will be at AfroTech Conference. Please contact carlos.munguia@blavity.com for assistance.
