View and Download the Program

The Collection Systems 2021 Virtual Event will be held online on an interactive platform where you’ll gain access to eight Technical Sessions as well as a Technology Spotlight, Company Demos and Networking Opportunities. Technical Sessions will be presented in two ways: Live and Simulated-live (or simu-live) to encourage the most interaction and engagement between speakers and registrants.

Live sessions will take you to a Zoom meeting where the speakers and moderators are giving their presentations on screen in real time while you watch. There will be one session each day hosted live on Zoom.

All other sessions will be Simu-live, meaning these sessions will be pre-recorded complete with moderator interaction and questions and the recordings will be played for you at a certain time and date during the virtual event. Speakers will be present at that time to answer any questions asked by our audience live via chat.
