Here's how GroupBy works:

  • Speakers submit session abstracts publicly online
  • Everybody votes for the abstracts they’d like to see most 
  • When voting closes, the top 5 speakers/abstracts are picked for each stream of content (Europe or the Americas)
  • Sessions are held online in an easy-to-watch platform
  • A live co-host helps the session go smoothly by posing questions from Q&A and Twitter, helping things run smoothly
  • Recordings are posted on our YouTube account
  • Speakers can’t present on back-to-back days
  • We encourage speakers to submit multiple sessions, but only their top-voted session will be selected.
