Virtual Booth

One of the key features of #ddc2020 is the virtual booth. It offers a unique way to present yourself by hosting your own stage where you can hold demos, presentations, talks or simply go live and talk to our audience! You can add live or prerecorded videos or external YouTube or Twitch videos.

Brand your virtual booth with:

  • Your logo and a short description
  • Social media channels and handouts (decks and brochures to download)
  • Your media and video materials: banners (jpeg or png) and videos (mp4)
  • A public chat with notifications
  • An agenda with all your presentations that can be bookmarked by attendees
  • A Lead Access info where you can see all your past and current booth visitors!

The virtual booth also allows you and your team to go live and talk to your audience. Imagine getting together with your colleagues on your devcom booth for a coffee or a well-deserved end-of-the-day beer. Sounds familiar and feels a bit nostalgic? The virtual booth makes it possible while respecting social distancing guidelines. 😉

Click ‘Go Backstage’, check your audio and video settings and then click on ‘Go Live”. Your visitors will be even able to join you live by clicking on ‘Participate’ and chat with you directly on camera!


Lead access and generation is key when attending a conference, especially if you’re an exhibitor. With the virtual booth you can see who has been or is on your virtual booth!

This makes it really easy to book a meeting with these potential business partners. You can of course download your visitor attendee list for later use.
Only publicly-available information that corresponds to the visitor ‘badge’ information will be displayed: name, company and position.
