Frequently Asked Questions
Virtual Business Platform Attendees
Where can I find my login details?
A link will be sent to your registered email address once the platform opens (usually about 1 month before the live event) with a link to login and create your profile. The first time you log in you will be able to create your own password.
If you have not received this, search for an email from ‘pathable’ as it may have ended up in your spam or junk mail folder.
If you still cannot find it, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
