Happening in person and online Nov. 8-9, Zoomtopia 2022 is your chance to discover the technology and strategies powering modern workforces. Come to hear our vision for business communications, stay for the exciting guest speakers and sessions.

You may have heard about the celebrity guests – Alex Borstein is hosting (yay, “Family Guy”!) and Grammy-winning music icon Timbaland is a keynote speaker. But here are a few logistical items to help you get the most out of your Zoomtopia experience.

Know before you go in person

Attending Zoomtopia 2022 in person? You’re sure to enjoy this one-of-a-kind event experience. There’s still time to register if you want to see the future of communications firsthand. 

Getting there

The onsite portion of Zoomtopia 2022 all happens at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in downtown San Jose, California. This link has a ton of useful information regarding directions and parking, even bike rack information for our cyclist enthusiasts!

What to bring

You might want to bring your laptop and any device chargers to participate in our sessions during Zoomtopia. If you pre-ordered Zoomtopia swag from our virtual store, feel free to wear it! (There’s also a Zoomtopia store onsite, so don’t forget to save room in your suitcase.)

You also might want to bring a jacket if you’re attending the Celebration of Happiness event, as it’s mostly outdoors. Other than that, food, drinks, and most everything else you’ll need will be provided on-site.

Covid protocols

Proof of vaccination is not required to attend Zoomtopia, but we ask that for everyone’s health and well-being you follow the guidelines in place for this event:

  • If you are feeling unwell or have any symptoms of COVID-19, we ask that you do not attend the in-person event and instead take advantage of the virtual experience.
  • If you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past five days, we ask that you not attend unless your symptoms have improved, and wear a mask until day 10.
  • If you become unwell while attending, please leave the event and take a COVID-19 test as a precautionary measure. 

Pick up your badge

Registration at San Jose Convention Center is conveniently located on the parkway level, near the main entrance. All attendees entering the premises will go through a security checkpoint at one of two entry points – when entering via the main entrance doors or through the San Jose Hilton. 

Registration hours:

  • 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 8

Explore the expo hall 

The New Dimensions Expo is located on the upper level of the San Jose Convention Center. Hours are as follows: 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. PT Tuesday, Nov. 8, and from 9:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 9. This is the area to get hands-on training from Zoom product experts, partners, and more, as well as network with other attendees. Additionally, the iconic Jam Van will be parked inside and hosting live musical performances!

Interact with other attendees

The cool thing about Zoomtopia 2022 is that it’s a hybrid experience. In-person guests can rub elbows with others at the New Dimensions Expo. But you also have the opportunity to interact with virtual attendees in sessions via Zoom’s chat, reactions, and Q&A features. Look for the QR code in each room, the Zoom ID, or the link within each session on the Cvent app to join and participate from your laptop or smartphone.

Get language support

American Sign Language services will be available for all mainstage keynotes onsite in San Jose and streamed for virtual attendees on Zoom Events. For the North American agenda, we will have Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese live audio interpreters for all hybrid and virtual sessions. Additionally, there will be Japanese and Korean interpreters for a select group of sessions (on-site only). 

Party on during the Celebration of Happiness 

Join us for unforgettable moments during our Celebration of Happiness event. Enjoy an evening of games, great food, and of course, world-class live music by Lawrence, Yola, and Nelly! The celebration wrapping up on Day 1 is mostly outside, so plan to bring a jacket. And please double-check the weather the day of the event to make sure you’re dressed appropriately.
