OTC 2021 Hybrid - Frequently Asked Questions

Due to the ongoing challenges presented by COVID-19 and out of the greatest care for the health and safety of our partners, attendees, exhibitors, staff, and community, OTC 2021 is moving to a hybrid event. 

If you have a question not listed below, please contact us.

What does hybrid mean?

OTC 2021 will be an in-person event with virtual components. This year’s event will be held at NRG Park in Houston, TX from 16-19 August. All registered attendees will be able to access OTC content in person and/or virtually.

Is there a difference in price from previous in-person only OTC's?

Whether you choose to attend in person or virtually, registration for OTC 2021 will be the same cost. If you choose to attend in-person for part of the event or not at all, you will have access to the virtual components as well. The virtual components will have but are not limited to: the technical program, real-time Q&A, exhibitor presentations, virtual exhibit floor, panel discussions, networking components, and more. 

Do I have to decide when I register if I am going to attend in-person or virtually only?

No. Once you have registered for the event, you will have full access to the in-person event as well as the virtual components. You do not have to choose during the registration process.

What if there is a COVID outbreak again and no in-person event?

OTC is monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely in partnership with NRG Park and the City of Houston. If an in-person event is not feasible, OTC is set up to provide the virtual program and exhibit floor in August.

What if I am from another country and cannot travel to the United States?

You have the option of attending OTC virtually. It will be recorded, and you can watch during the time zone that works to your favor, with the exception of live sessions—which will be uploaded at a later date.

What if I received an exhibitor pass to attend OTC but cannot join in-person?

You will have access only to the virtual exhibit floor or the in-person exhibit floor. Your registration pass will be marked accordingly.
