Don't forget to register for PM21
by midnight PT tonight, before prices go up!
Greetings PM Family,
We first want to recognize that yesterday the CDC came out with new guidelines recommending that people, even those who are fully vaccinated, wear masks in public indoor settings. We wanted to take this opportunity to re-share our event safety update from last week. Our goal is to make Podcast Movement the most enjoyable and safest event that we possibly can for the podcast community!
Speaking of PM21, Podcast Movement is like that fancy tape measure: ready to snap back quickly into action, starting in a few days!
But before that happens, we had to make sure the mobile app and event platform were live and ready to use.
We also have on-demand virtual sessions that are live, and ready for you to dive into for some pre-conference warm-up… and of course, they'll still be there later on for some post-conference wind-down.
Finally, this is your final reminder that some events during PM21 have requested advanced RSVPs, so we have a reminder of those below.
Wait, one more surprise: did we mention that we also have one final keynote announcement? Holy Moly!
PM21 Mobile App &
Event Platform is Live!
Special thanks to Podfly for sponsoring this year's event mobile app and event platform.
Attendees should have received their invitation emails to join the app earlier this week. However, if that is not the case, you can download the app or access the desktop web version.
The Swapcard platform and mobile app will allow attendees to create custom schedules, network with fellow attendees, exhibitors, speakers, and more.
Not to mention, this is where all the on-demand virtual content will be watchable before and after the event, plus this is where all the live-streamed sessions will take place for all attendees.
We encourage you to go ahead and access the app, either on your desktop or your mobile device, get your profile set up, and check everything out with plenty of time to go before the sessions kick off a week from today!
On-Demand Virtual Sessions Are Now Available
We've got a handful live already, and the rest will be added throughout the week to their session pages.
Why wait until next week to gain access to podcasting insights and wisdom? We have several amazing virtual presentations available on-demand for you to take in before and after the event. You can access these via the web app and mobile app mentioned above.
Here are a few of the virtual sessions that are live now or will be live later this week:
