WIT Awards Virtual: Frequently Asked Questions

What browser should I use for the event?

We recommend Google Chrome for the best results.

What is my log in for the VIP reception?

When you first log in, you will create an account. This is not tied to your WIT membership. Please create your account using your email of choice and password.

Can I watch the event on my phone?

While we do support mobile, we have designed the user interface for desktop and tablet viewing.

I don’t see a video, what is happening?

If you get to the page before the stream starts, you may need to refresh the page when you believe the live stream video should be showing.

The live stream seems glitchy, what is wrong?

First, you should refresh the browser. If there are still streaming issues after you have already refreshed the page, it is most likely your internet speed. To test your internet speed, go to https://www.speedtest.net/. It is recommended that viewers have 5 – 10mbps. For more information about Vimeo live streaming requirements visit https://help.livestream.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002050908-Requirements-Supported-Browsers

How do I reset my password?

After registering with your event organizer, you should have received an email containing this reset password link: https://www.vlinkevents.com/change-password/. Follow this link, enter your email, and look in your inbox for the change password email from us, vLink Solutions. If you can’t find it at first, check your junk folder. Once you find the email with the link in it, click on the link, and you will reach a page where you can enter your new event password.

How do I navigate to a different room?

Depending on what room you are in, the navigation bar will either be on the left or right side of the screen. If you are in the event lobby, the navigation bar is on the right side of the screen. If you are in any other room the navigation bar is on the left. You will first have to click the small arrow and then navigate to the room that you would like to visit.
