Attend Virtual SLEEP 2020
Although we would have loved to host SLEEP in Philadelphia, for everyone’s health and safety, we have opted to host SLEEP in a virtual setting. After much thoughtful consideration and hard work, we have created a program for Virtual SLEEP 2020 that will allow attendees unprecedented access to the content offered. Explore the highlights below of the new SLEEP 2020 and see how you’ll gain more by attending.

What is a Virtual SLEEP?
Virtual SLEEP 2020 will be hosted online with the support of CadmiumCD. Through this platform, attendees will have access to pre-recorded content and live sessions. Attendee access to content will last until August 1, 2021.
Live General Sessions
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, there will be educational content blocks consisting of 2 hours and 45 minutes of live sessions in both the morning and afternoon. Sessions may be either 45 minutes or 1 hour and 45 minutes in length.
Recorded General Sessions
While live sessions are going, recorded sessions will also be released. These sessions will be released at scheduled times. The difference is only that the presentation was previously recorded. We are still encouraging presenters to be available for questions even if they have previously recorded their presentation.
Postgraduate courses are available for purchase. There are seven different courses and can be purchased individually or as a bundle at a discounted rate. Non-attendees can also purchase postgraduate courses by going through the registration process for Virtual SLEEP 2020.
There will be a Poster Hall that will be accessible 24 hours per day. Presenters have been encouraged to make a short two-minute video for their poster and offer “office hours” for attendees to interact with the presenter and ask questions about the poster.
Don’t miss the latest from industry leaders and partners! At the Virtual SLEEP 2020 exhibit hall, you’ll enjoy meeting with the familiar organizations and new ones to the field of sleep. Accessible 24 hours a day, you can watch presentations, send direct messages to exhibitors, and “visit” booths at your leisure. Each exhibitor will be encouraged to provide “office hours” so that you can virtually interact with a live representative during that specified time.
