On the Whova page, click "sign in here" below the sign in button.

You can also access Whova on your phone– simply click on the mobile app button above or search “Whova” in the Apple App Store, in Google Play to download the app. Once you’re signed in (using this same email used for Conference registration), the app should recognize you and locate the OAK Conference listing. NOTE: the Whova mobile app is best for using social networking features before, during and after the event.
If the OAK Conference doesn’t show up automatically in either of these first two steps, search for “10th Annual OAK Conference,” click the join button on the bottom of the event description page, and enter the event invitation code sent in email communication.
Update your attendee profile once you are logged in to Whova and the OAK Conference! In the mobile app click on the top left circle icon then select “edit my profile” from the pop out menu bar. From the desktop web app click on your name in the top right corner of the screen and select “my profile” from the drop down menu.

You’ll notice that speaker profiles, as well as Sponsor and Exhibitor profiles are already updated and ready to connect with you.
