HOW TO MBF ONLINE
Watch a Live Event on MiamiBookFairOnline.com
It couldn’t be easier! MiamiBookFairOnline.com does NOT require you to register to watch free videos or live events. Simply head over to the event page on the date and start time and click the pink PLAY button.
Registration is required ONLY if you’d like to use features such as the “Add to my watchlist” button, or if you want to use the “LIVE CHAT/Q&A” window, which is available during live events only. Remember:
The LIVE CHAT/Q&A function is ONLY AVAILABLE DURING LIVE EVENTS.
Watch a Paid Event on MiamiBookFairOnline.com
TO WATCH: Go to the event page and press the pink PLAY button on the date and start time of the event. The event link may have been emailed to you, or you might find the event page on the homepage of MiamiBookFairOnline.com, or by searching with a keyword from the homepage of MiamiBookFairOnline.com.
REMEMBER, IF THE EVENT IS NOT FREE TO THE PUBLIC AND YOU’VE RECEIVED A PASSWORD FOR THAT EVENT: When you click on the pink PLAY button, a prompt will appear requesting the event-specific password. You must enter the password in order to access the event. This password is DIFFERENT from the one you chose for yourself if/when you registered for a MiamiBookFairOnline.com account.
Register for MiamiBookFairOnline.com
Registering on MiamiBookFairOnline.com is a one-time, easy process.
Once you’ve registered – and as long as you remember your username and password – you won’t need to register again. But be sure to save your username and password in a safe place. Remember: You will only need to input your MBFO login/password if you get logged out of the website.
Most individual events do not require an additional registration, but please note: If an event is NOT free – and requires a book-as-ticket purchase or other payment – when you press the pink PLAY button for that specific event at the time of the event, a prompt will appear in front of the video requesting an event-specific access password. When you purchase the ticket or book-as-ticket, you will receive that password.
These special passwords apply ONLY to specific events for which we require a purchase of some kind (usually a book), and it’s completely separate from your MiamiBookFairOnline.com registration password.
