Frequently Asked Questions
What is WoundCon?
WoundCon is a Virtual Wound Care Conference and Expo held exclusively online, July 17, 2020.
What do you mean by a "Virtual Conference"?
Like a traditional in-person conference, the WoundCon wound care conference offers informative sessions, an exhibitor area, networking opportunities & other interactive events, however, since this is exclusively an online event, all of this takes place within an immersive virtual environment. Visitors log into the virtual conference using their email and password (assigned a day or 2 before the conference). Once inside, you will navigate the conference space just like you do any other website. Clear guidance and navigation are available inside the virtual space so you can easily find your way around quickly. If you’d like to see a demonstration of this virtual space, we recommend you watch the experience video on this page.
