We are partnering with PheedLoop for Make It Safe 2023. A link will be emailed to you with your exhibitor log in details to start work on creating your virtual booth. The process is very easy as you upload your marketing material, images, banners, link videos and upload documents, and let the system do the rest.

Link your registration to your booth so that attendees can easily connect with you if they have questions. Use the live count to see how many virtual visitors you have at your booth, and connect with them personally via the chat or video function. Actively engage with the main chat feed and perhaps provide a prize for those who "attend" your booth!
