Joining the virtual Festival

There are many reasons why people can’t go to an event — sometimes it’s just not being able to afford a ticket or get away from work. That’s why we’re offering a free Standard Virtual Pass to make sure everyone can join, from anywhere. We’re also making our sessions available on-demand so you can watch them in your own time.

Live captions on sessions

All our sessions will be streamed live using YouTube’s closed captioning feature to make sure you don’t miss a single insight. If you’re using Google Chrome, you can switch on their in-browser Live Captions for more control over font size and colours.

Multi-language support

We love having a global audience, which is why we chose a virtual platform that supports multiple languages. If English isn’t your strong suit, simply adjust the ‘Display language’ to the one you know best. So far, you can choose from Dutch, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish.

Website

We’re working our way through the CogX website to make sure every page is easy to access. If you find something that we haven’t gotten to yet, please email us or use the live chat feature at the bottom right corner of every page.

Have a different question?

We’re working closely with the CogX community to make our Festival as inclusive as possible, so if you have a different question or suggestion, we’d love to hear from you!
