Sponsor and Exhibitor Rooms
- Creating a Virtual Room for your sponsors and exhibitors
- Who can speak in my Sponsor and Exhibitor Rooms?
Having dedicated virtual rooms for each sponsor and exhibitor provide multiple benefits for these companies supporting your event. Straight from the Virtual Lobby, they have the means for engaging and networking with attendees, building relationships, and expanding their reach in their target audience.
Creating a Virtual Room for your sponsors and exhibitors
If you'd like your sponsor to have a dedicated room in the Lobby, go to Event > Sponsors, select the sponsor, click on the Edit button, scroll the page down and tick the Virtual Room checkbox. Click on End when finished, to save the changes that were made.
The same process goes into creating a virtual room for your Exhibitors. Go to Event > Exhibitors, select the exhibitor, click the Edit button, scroll down the page and tick the Virtual room checkbox. Click on End to save changes.
To avoid losing the data associated with the room, consider setting the room as Invisible instead. To do so, scroll down to the bottom of the screen and change the Visible option to Invisible (as shown below):
Adding a room cover
Once the room is created, you'll be able to upload a room cover. If you leave it blank it will be a block color. The desired size for it is 560 x 320 (px by px).
This is how the room cover image will be displayed to participants in your Virtual Lobby:
Getting the room link
The room link is the URL for accessing the sponsor or exhibitor's virtual room. Please note that users must already be logged into the platform with their Magic Link or password credential for it to be accessed.
Setting the room host
The room host will be in charge of managing the stream, being able, together with event admins, to invite viewers to go on camera and join the transmission. Room hosts are also able to join the sessions by sharing their cam/mic, moderate chats, add/remove files available for download and also have access to the private chat even when not presenting. To learn more about permission levels on sponsor/exhibitor rooms please check this article.
Choosing the maximum number of presenters in the room
Here you will set the maximum number of people you want to be on camera simultaneously in the room. If you are using Videoconferencing as your room video mode, you will be able to have up to 17 presenters in a room.
Choosing the room video mode
You can select your room video mode from Pre-recorded, Control room, VideoConferencing, and External Link. For more information about each of them, please check the article choosing your room video mode.
In addition, if you enable the Instant external links tool, you will not see the You are joining now window pop-up when trying to join the sponsor room. The room will automatically redirect you to the external platform. The gifs below show the behavior before and after enabling the Instant external links tool:

Once this option is enabled, you can press Edit to add questions to the feedback form. Click here to learn how to do that.
