InEvent offers the opportunity for Exhibitors to showcase and promote their products or services through the sponsorship of events. Using the InEvent Virtual Lobby, exhibitors can have their Virtual rooms and engage and network with attendees on 1x1 or group meetings. This helps promote brand visibility and expand the reach to their target audience..

How do I add Exhibitors to my Event?

There are 2 ways to add sponsors to the platform: Manually and via spreadsheet.


To add Exhibitors manually to your event, go to Event > Exhibitor and click on +Add Exhibitor. Once you have added an exhibitor, click on the exhibitor's name and the Details page will be displayed to start adding more information when you click on the Edit button.

Adding an exhibitor

Exhibitors will have QR codes created for them, which admins can view on the platform and sponsor representatives can view and download on the Sponsors account page in the Virtual Lobby.

Via spreadsheet

You can add sponsors to your event using the demo file provided by InEvent. To do this, click on Edit > Import > Download demo file.

After downloading the file, fill the spreadsheet providing the information corresponding to each column.

Filling the spreadsheet
To instruct the system to ignore cache entries of the sponsors from previous events, fill the Ignore cache column with 1. Alternatively, if you wish to retain these entries, input 0 in the column.
For security reasons, InEvent requires that the URLs added under the Logo column in the spreadsheet are obtained from InEvent's servers. To ensure successful upload, we recommend uploading the sponsor logos first through the Files section on the InEvent platform and using the provided URL in the spreadsheet for import. Click here to learn how to upload images through Files.

After filling the demo file, click on Edit > Import, and then click the green folder icon button and select the spreadsheet from your computer. The button will appear with a check mark when this is done, and you should click on the Add button to import the spreadsheet into the platform.

Exhibitor Guide

If you are an Exhibitor in an event happening on our platform, this article is going to help you understand what you are going to be able to do and how you can manage your own information within InEvent.

What is the difference between Sponsors and Exhibitors?

The main difference between an Exhibitor and a Sponsor is the level of interactivity. While Exhibitors have a higher level of interaction with attendees, Sponsors by default have a higher amount of image placement in the event at large. Sponsors are usually big companies or brands who fund the event at large while Exhibitors pay to be part of an event in order to push their brand and create brand awareness.
