AGS Conference Goes Virtual

July 26-28, 2021


After careful deliberation, the AGS Board of Directors made the difficult decision to shift the AGS Conference to a virtual platform. While we are disappointed that we will not have the opportunity to meet in person this year, we are excited to still be able to disseminate industry information to the AGS membership via a virtual platform.

Exhibit & Sponsorship Opportunites

Don't miss this opportunity! Each year, the support received by our exhibitors and sponsors provides the funding to continue serving the glovebox/containment industry. In return, AGS offers vendors an opportunity to network and provide product/service information to the industry.  This relationship is important and we are making it a priority to develop a package that will allow our vendors to meaningfully engage virtually with attendees

Virtual Conference Q&A

Virtual Conference - How Does it Work?

Conference sessions will be held via Zoom webinar platform. Prior to the conference, you will receive an email providing you access to the conference app. The conference app can be accessed via a computer or downloaded as an app on your phone (or both!). The conference app is where the virtual conference will be organized. In the app, you will find the conference agenda and the Zoom registration links for each session. Additionally, you will find a Chat Room, Exhibit Hall, Directory of Attendees, and more! The app will be your one-stop shop to access the virtual conference. As we get closer to the event, we will release short video tutorials with easy step-by-step instructions.

Will I be Allowed to Ask Questions?
Absolutely! We encourage you to interact with the speaker during the live presentations. A Q&A panel will be used to ask questions throughout the presentation. Each session will have a moderator and their job is to watch for questions.

Will the Sessions be Recorded?
Yes, with the exception of the Glovebox Fundamentals Workshop, the conference sessions will be recorded. Whatever sessions you miss during the conference, you can view the recording at your convenience. Recordings will be made available on a complimentary basis to all conference attendees through December 31, 2021. 

What About Continuing Education?
The virtual system tracks your time in session. If you require a certificate of attendance, email ags@gloveboxsociety.org and we would be happy to create your certificate. We are unable to monitor time reviewing recordings so verification cannot be provided for watching recordings.

Will There be Time to Network?
Yes! We have scheduled dedicated time for attendees to network. During this time, we will have network hosts to provide topic guidance and roundtable discussions. In addition, we have a completely interactive exhibit hall so that you can meet with the vendors and catch up on the latest technology. The proximity-audio-based networking tool we will use allows you to connect with exhibitors, sponsors, speakers, colleagues, and other attendees! As we get closer to the event, we will release a short video demo of the virtual exhibit hall.
