Chatroom: Getting to Greenlight

Join our hosts for small group conversations about important topics facing today’s industry and make meaningful industry connections.

Invited guests will be hosting tables to kick off conversations, but all BANFF passholders are welcome to attend.

No sign-up is required for these small group meetings, which are hosted in AirMeet.

To enter the Chatroom, follow these simple steps:

  1. Be on a LAPTOP or a DESKTOP COMPUTER (the lounge platform does not offer all interactive features on a mobile device) 
  2. Use GOOGLE CHROME Browser 
  3. High Speed Internet connection offers the best experience
  4. Click on the Enter button below (this button appears when you are logged into your BANFFXchange profile, and during the posted Chatroom session times)
  5. Allow camera and microphone access on your computer  
  6. Provide your credentials/register with the Airmeet lounge platform.
    Be sure to use the same email address you used to register for the Banff World Media Festival event, so that the system recognizes you as an approved passholder.

Enter “the venue” (and follow prompts from there)
