When will registration be live and how can I register?
We are planning to open registration the week of October 5, 2020. Visit digital.printingunited.com and click the “Register” button.
How much does it cost to attend the Digital Experience?
All 14 days of the event are free to attendees, but you must register to gain access to the platform.
I registered as an attendee for the in-person event, will my registration automatically transfer over to the Digital Experience or do I need to re-register?
We are using a different registration system then the live event, however, we are investing the possibility to port over the previous registrants. To be sure of your participation, it’s best to register on the new platform.
Where can I find the exhibitor list for the Digital Experience?
Visit digital.printingunited.com and click “Showcases” in the navigation.
How can I interact with exhibitors?
When you enter an exhibitor’s showroom, a “Virtual Business Card” section will show which representatives are available to chat. If the representative is not online during the time you wish to speak, an email option will be present. Note that we have suggested that exhibitors be active during show hours (10 am to 2 pm Eastern Time – October 26 through November 12). However, since the Digital Experience will be available on-demand from 3+ months, 24/7, it is always not possible to have the exhibitor staff available.
Will each person from my company need to register if they wish to participate in the Digital Experience?
Yes, each person will need to register for the event. This allows each person to participate from their personal computer or device.
How can I register for educational sessions?
Access to the educational sessions are included with registration for the Digital Experience. Once in the MapYourShow platform, you’ll have the ability to add sessions to your planner.
