Pre-Event Checklist – Friday night In, Out

We hope you enjoy your imminent visit to the Horan Stand. As this is new technology, it can be tricky.There are a few things you need to do before the event to make sure it goes swimmingly for you.This guide is divided into two parts – A. How to get into The Horan Stand; B. What to do when you’re in. (And if all gets too much, try us on +353 87 9185 867 or events@thehoranstand.com).
  1. How to get into The Horan Stand

  1. Book your seat for the event by clicking on the link you’ve received. This involves giving your name, email and creating a password (make sure to keep that, you may need it later).
  2. You will need reasonable broadband/wi-fi to join this event. If your broadband is not great, it can help to turn off other devices on the same network for the duration of the event.
  3. Mobile phones or tablets just don’t work great – you really need a laptop or desktop. A mobile phone or tablet may work for a few minutes, but then drop. It can be very frustrating. We are working with the software developers to improve this, but, for now, best get to your laptop or desktop.
  4. To get the full networking experience use both camera and microphone on your computer. It’s not required but will greatly enhance your experience. You can see people, people can see you – it all helps to generate better conversation.
  5. The platform works with a variety of browsers. If pushed, we would say that Chrome is the one it works with best.

  8. If your camera or microphone does not, here are troubleshooting guides to help you resolve common issues: My camera and microphone does not work on Windows 10
My camera and microphone does not work on MacOSX
  1. If your camera or microphone still does not work, go here live.remo.co and click on the “Need Help” button on the bottom left corner.
  1. Locate yourself in a quiet place with a non-distracting background.
  2. Watch this YouTube video for instructions on How to login and use Remo
  3. When the event goes live, you should be good to go.
See you inside the event.
  1. What to do when you’re in
    1. It will probably take you about five minutes to figure out how it works. We will be in the venue to help you during this time – in fact, that ‘figuring it out’ period can be a bit of fun. Plus, further down this page, you can see the video we’ve created that shows you the ropes.
    2. First off, you will see various Rooms / Tables with names on them. The names are quite small but you should be able to enlarge your screen to see them better.
    3. Pick a Room / Table that interests you and double click on the name (on the actual text of the name) to enter. If the Room / Table is full, you won’t be able to enter.
    4. Chat with people in there and move onto another Room / Table if you wish.
    5. Please move around to other Rooms / Tables.
    6. If you want to ask the Host / Presenter a question, type a question into Chat (bottom right of the page).
  1. As you move from Room / Table to Room / Table, it can take a couple of seconds for your position to be updated. Be patient with that, it will come around – and, if not, just message the Presenter / Host through the chat. Or raise your hand.
