How is it different to the IHCAN Conference Webinars?

Using a brand new, bespoke, virtual conference and expo platform, the IHCAN Conferences Virtual Event is a whole-day event with multiple live sessions and a virtual exhibition – bringing the “in-person” conference experience direct to your device.
