This article outlines the Lobby in a Bevy Virtual Conference. See Bevy Virtual for non-conference events.
About the lobby
The lobby is the entry point for all those who join your Bevy Virtual Conference. Use a lobby video to:
- Create excitement as the first attendee touchpoint
- Give attendees directions for navigating the platform
- Promote engagement by changing the video from day to day
- Give a sponsorship shout-out
Add a lobby
- Edit your virtual conference event.
- Within the General Information tab of the event settings, enter the details in the lobby section.
- Logo/image: Max height 90px JPG or PNG
- Intro text/Welcome message: Up to 100 characters
- Video: YouTube link or you can upload an MP4 file. If Youtube, ensure you are not using shortened or appended YouTube link.
No auto-play. Attendee must click play to start the video.
- Sponsor/Partner logos: Can link to specific booths. (These logos will display based on the logos that you've added in your event creation.) They will display on a carousel.
The lobby is not required. If you don't fill out the details when creating your event, a lobby will not display and attendees will enter the event at the Agenda.
Attendee lobby experience
Attendees can access the lobby upon joining the event and anytime from the top-level navigation.
