Between branded covers, ads, files, and engaging features, sponsors have plenty of options to get the most out of their investment.

What is the purpose of these tabs?

You might not see all these tabs as it depends on the package you have purchased. Click here for further information on which features are included in each plan.
Sponsors' tabs
In case you do not want to have the Chat and Files tabs being displayed on your sponsor booth, you can hide them. Click here to learn how to do so.
  1. People

It allows each person added to join the Sponsor Virtual Room with Presenter abilities.

Besides having Presenter abilities, people added to the People tab will also be able to edit the Sponsor profile and allocate Sponsor tickets.

Room hosts will also have permission to edit the Sponsor profile even if they haven't been added to the People tab.

To add someone to the People tab, click Event > Sponsors > select a sponsor > press People > +Add person.

You should not add the same email to the People tab of two different sponsors because this will cause a permission error. For example, if you have added the email lana@inevent.com to the People tab of Sponsor #1, you should not add this same email to the People tab of Sponsor #2, because if Lana goes to her My Account page, she won't see the option to edit both Sponsor #1 and #2 profiles, she will only see the first sponsor you linked her with.

Whenever this person added to the People tab access their My Account page, they should see a Sponsor profile tab to edit information such as Company name, logo, virtual room cover, etc.
