Networking café FAQs

Throughout the day on Tuesday, November 10, we invite registered Outlook 2020 guests to attend the networking café and connect with sponsors and other conference delegates.

What do I need to attend?

You will need:
  • A computer (laptop or desktop)
  • A camera (laptop camera or webcam)
  • A microphone (an external microphone is recommended for the best sound quality)
  • Headphones (headphones are preferred to your computer speakers; they will stop any echo, and this will help others hear you better)
  • Internet 
  • A web browser (Chrome or Safari).

When is it open?
The Outlook 2020 networking café will be open throughout the day during the breaks and at the start and end of the conference.

What text-based chat functions are there?
There are three modes of text-based chat:
