As all University buildings are closed to the public under all operational postures, University members are strongly encouraged to hold meetings, conferences and events remotely to the maximum extent possible, even when all participants are on-campus. When there is an identifiable function that requires an in-person meeting, conference or event, all participants in such in-person meetings, conferences and events must adhere to the University’s Health Standards and Guidelines, as well as any applicable guidance from the local, state or federal government.

Virtual or Hybrid Conferences and Events – Platform Information

Pitt's Panther Express purchasing team is finalizing agreements with Intrado, Accelevents and PSAV as University-wide contracted suppliers to provide high-quality, interactive learning experiences for virtual/hybrid conferences and events.

  • For events that are free for attendees: Each of the contracted suppliers offer an all-in-one virtual/hybrid conference and event platform as long as the event is FREE to your attendees.
  • For conferences/events that require a credit card payment from attendees: Cvent will need to be used in combination with either Intrado, Accelevents or PSAV to handle the registration/payment portion of your conference or event.
