(Not Your Typical) Cocktail Party

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Is there something you want to talk about at Cannexus, or a kind of conversation you are hoping to have? Then join us for this incredible Zoom cocktail room where you can interact with other conference participants interested in those same topics.

This Cocktail Party will be like nothing you have been to online. You’ll be able to find people who you are interested in talking to, chat in small groups, and move fluidly between conversations – just like at a real cocktail party! Whether you’re the kind of person who loves cocktail parties or someone who finds them kind of awkward, this fun and easy event is intended to provide a meaningful experience for everyone.

It will be hosted by Misha Glouberman, a professional facilitator who helps people run better meetings and conferences, and have more effective and authentic conversations, both online and face to face. He has spent the last 9 months experimenting with ways to create online gatherings that capture a lot of the vitality of real-world get-togethers.

Here are some things to know about the event:  
  • It is an event with a beginning, middle and end. We ask that you be on time, ready to start at 3:30 pm ET. It runs for 1-hour and ends at 4:30 pm ET.
  • Parts of the event will be very structured, with facilitation by Misha. Parts will be more free-form.
  • You need to log in using a computer: Many of the most important features we’ll be using are unavailable on the Zoom tablet/phone software.
  • You’ll need to be running the latest version of Zoom (VERY IMPORTANT) so please be sure to update before the event. We’ll be relying heavily on some features that are *only* available in the latest release.
  • Show up with your camera on, and be ready to participate: This is a participatory, cameras-on event. You’ll spend most of your time in small Zoom video-chat groups. 
  •  Feel free to bring a time-zone-appropriate drink!
Note capacity will be limited and participation is first-come, first-served.
