Event Platform

This year our conference will be held on a virtual event platform, Boomset. We’re excited to offer this new format with virtual presentations, opportunities for engagement and more!

All Attendees

The “Join the Event on May 5” link in your registration confirmation email will take you to Boomset where you will be prompted to enter the email address you used during registration. Select Continue and Request a new PIN. A pin will be sent to your email address. Your pin is your Boomset password, so be sure it save it.

Via Andriod or iOS App

Download the Boomset Event App from the Apple App Store or Google Play. When you first launch the app, you will be asked to enter the Event Code: 113499 or log in using the email you used at registration. Enter your pin (or Request a new PIN if you do not have one).

We recommend you sign in to Boomset before the day of the event to set up your account and review your session selections.


If you will be a speaker at the conference and want to attend other sessions or engage with features on Boomset, you will access the platform the same way that all attendees do. See above instructions.


Access Sessions via Zoom

Select the Sessions tab on the left menu to view the full event schedule. Select “My Schedule” to view the session selections you made during registration. You are more than welcome to attend other sessions throughout the day by selecting “Add” adjacent to the desired session.

To join a session, click on the Session Name. At the session's start time, click the play icon that says "Open Live Stream" and you'll be taken to the Zoom session. If you haven't logged into Zoom yet that day, you may be prompted to log in and/or authenticate into Zoom. 

Once you're in the Zoom session, you can engage with the Zoom chat, or ask questions in the Q&A section. 

When you're done with the Zoom session, you will click "End" to leave the Zoom webinar. Then you can go back to the Boomset event page in the previous browser tab and navigate to your next session.


Get Tech Support

Do you need tech support? Do you have a question about programming? Or would you like to provide feedback? Visit the Information Desk on the Boomset homepage. This is an all-day session where you can contact the Innovate event team as needed. In the same way that you will attend sessions, click the play icon that says “Open Live Stream” to enter the Zoom support session. Once you're in the Zoom session, feel free to ask away in the Zoom chat or Q&A section. 

For questions or issues logging into Boomset (or locating your confirmation email), contact us at innovateu@osu.edu


Navigate the Platform


The Boomset event page will give you an abbreviated preview of all upcoming sessions, including the Information Desk session which will run in the background all day and is there for you to pop in and ask questions. 


The Sessions page, located in the navigation menu contains the entire schedule for the day and indicates which sessions you plan to attend. 


All presenter biographies live on the Speakers page in Boomset. 


The speech bubble icon located in the top menu in Boomset allows you to connect and network with other participants through one-on-one conversations.  


Live captions by human transcriptionists will be provided for each session. Keyboard-only and screen reader users will have issues navigating the event platform (Boomset); however, Aira assistance may be requested by anyone experiencing difficulty. If you have difficulty accessing the content of this website or have a disability and require additional accessibility accommodations, please email innovateu@osu.edu with details. Requests made 10 business days in advance of the event will generally allow us to provide seamless access; however, the university will make every effort to meet requests made after this time period.
