WYSIWYG
WYSIWYG is a tech initialism that stands for “what you see is what you get.” It usually refers to a user interface that lets you directly edit and manipulate the look and content of a document, page, or file. This means that whatever edits you’re making to something will display the same way when the final output is produced.

It can also be translated into different languages, to do so please check this article.

The Minibio can be viewed if a user clicks on top of the Exhibitor logo inside the session.

Exhibitors can be viewed on the event's website, in the Virtual Lobby, and in the mobile app.

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.
