GALA Amsterdam Livestream

This year GALA is pleased to try something new for members who cannot attend the annual conference. We are providing a members-only free livestream for 10+ conference sessions! This is just one more way that you and your team benefit from GALA membership.

For non-members, this would be a great time for your organization to consider joining GALA. By joining now, you and your team will have access to the livestream, as well as a host of other member benefits.

How Do I Access the Livestream?

GALA Members, to access the livestream, please join the Amsterdam Livestream members-only group on GALA Connect.  All connection information will be shared exclusively via that group. Plus, you'll also be able to connect with other virtual attendees. 

Please register in advance to ensure your website account is active. Real-time assistance during the event will be delayed as GALA staff will have limited bandwidth for technical support.

Which Sessions Will be Included?

The following sessions will be part of the livestream. All times are in CEST.  If you aren't able to join the livestream, please note that almost all conference sessions will be recorded and are free for GALA members to view online immediately after the event.

Live chat will also be enabled during the livestream. This will allow fellow participants to interact while watching sessions.
