NVNR August Attendee Guide

Welcome to NVNR August! This Attendee Guide will help you to navigate the event and help you get where you wish to go!



Sign in to the Attendee Hub with your registration email address to reach all things NVNR. No passwords required!

Once you are signed in, you will have instant access to the Schedule, Studio Gallery, Bookstore Row, Author and Presenters Gallery, and of course the wildly popular Readers of the Last ARC Galley Room — featuring three hundred books!



NVNR is hosted on the Zoom platform. Each event in the schedule has been assigned a Zoom Channel: Z1M, Z1W, Z2M. All attendees have been pre-registered for events. Sign in to the Attendee Hub to see your personal, unique zoom links to each channel. They will go live on Sunday:

zoom link buttons

If you lose or forget your zoom links you can click the “join” button on any event in the schedule. You will be taken to a registration page where you can enter your email address. You will then be recognized by Zoom and allowed into the event if it is open.


NVNR Support Buttons
Look for the purple and red buttons that appear on the NVNR site. The purple "contact" button will give you a way to directly contact any of the NVNR Staff.

The red "support" button will submit a fast support ticket. Those will be monitored as long as NVNR is running, and are monitored during business hours between NVNR events. It is the fastest way to get an answer to urgent questions.



Each day of NVNR is bookended by Author Panels in the morning and the evening, with education sessions, networking events, and publisher "book buzz" events during the day.
