How do I add a video to my virtual space?

Accepted embedded file formats: .mp4, .mov, .webm, .hls
Can I hide my profile from the staff list shown within my virtual space?
Yes. Within the top navigation bar under “My Account” select “Edit My Profile”. Next select the “Preferences” tab found under your profile photo. Here you will see a checkbox for “Hide this profile from other attendees” under the privacy section.
How many people can I have listed as staff under my virtual booth?
There is no limit to the number of staff within your booth space.
As a CheeseExpo Global Online exhibitor, your company receives 3 full conference registrations and unlimited exhibits only registrations. All members of your company who will be participating at the event will need to be registered to gain access to your booth. Registration is available online now. If your company would like to purchase additional full registration passes, pricing information is also available.
What is the difference between visits and leads?
Visits is a list of anyone who clicks into your virtual booth. This log shows you how many times, and when, the individual stopped by. You will need to monitor this is and actively reach out, should you wish, to these individuals within the Pathable platform.
Leads are people who actively reached out to you. There will be an option for attendees to send the booth a message and request information. They are agreeing to send you the message and with doing so their contact information. You will receive a notification within and outside of the Pathable platform that you received a message.
What kind of communication can take place between exhibitors and attendees?
Attendees can visit with an exhibitor in several ways. One is sending a message (creating a Lead for your company), write on the conversation tab within your booth, or visit during live exhibit hours which are 10a – 3p each day of the live event.
Exhibitors can visit with attendees by seeking them out within the robust attendee search function which allows you to search by many attributes such as name, title, company, and attendee type just to name a few.
