Structure of the platform

In your personal profile, the data taken from the "Messe-Login"  and ticket registration can be extended, the matchmaking information can be customized and a profile picture can be added.

Based on the information provided in matchmaking, the system suggests suitable conversation partners. The participants' profile pages show the matchin details. Your own details for the matchmaking process can be changed or supplemented at any time in your personal profile.

You can find further participants under "Participant search" in the networking area. Use the filter options to search specifically for suitable discussion partners."

Video call

Video calls work via the open source "Jitsi" in the browser, there is no login necessary as Jitsi is integrated into the platform.

You can participate in a video call with a laptop, PC as well as with a mobile device. To use all functions of a videocall you need a device with a camera and a microphone. Please make sure that your browser (Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge or Mozilla Firefox) has the latest version.

Mobile devices may have limitations due to different versions of the various operating systems.

There is a difference between scheduled and spontaneous video calls.

Scheduled video calls are possible between all participants. To do this, you arrange an appointment via your profile.

Spontaneous video calls take place between visitors and exhibitors. Via the profile of exhibitor representatives, a spontaneous video call can be started via the button ""Ad-hoc video call"" if the contact person is currently available for this.
