Customize Your Profile

As an event attendee, it is an important step to customize your profile when joining an event, as this will allow you to showcase your portfolio to other attendees and interested vendors. Displaying relevant information about you is a great way to start networking with other event attendees.

Updating Your Profile In the Virtual Hub

Whether you are an attendee, speaker, or exhibitor, you can customize your profile in the virtual hub.

If it's your first time entering the virtual hub, you will immediately see a pop-up allowing you to edit your profile.

If you decide to update your profile later, you can do so by clicking your avatar at the top right corner of the screen and selecting My Profile.

This will show you what other attendees see in your profile. From here, you can click Edit Profile to add more information.

Basic Details

  • Profile photo - should be 200 x 200 pixels (1:1)

  • First and last name - maximum of 50 characters each

  • Pronouns - maximum of 10 characters

  • Email Address - the email address you used for this event will only be visible to you

  • Title - your job title or position in your company

  • Company - your company or organization's name

  • Video Intro - add a video introduction (e.g., Youtube link)

  • About Me - a short self-introduction

  • Social Media - add your social media URLs (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn)

Attendee Profile Label

You may see an extra field at the bottom of Basic Details. Event admins sometimes ask a question upon registration, and your answer will appear in that field. You can edit your answer here.

Your answer should also appear in the upper left corner of your profile in the People tab. This is called the Attendee Profile Label. It allows you and other attendees to identify other attendees (depending on the purpose) easily without opening their profiles.


  • I want to learn about - things you would like to learn or know more about

  • Areas of expertise - your professional skills and abilities

  • Wants to meet - the type of people you want to connect to, whether you are looking for a personal or business connection

  • My interest keywords - add your interest or select from the dropdown

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I start editing my profile in the virtual hub?

Can I edit my virtual event hub profile in advance?

  • Speakers, Exhibitors, Admins, and Staff may edit their virtual event hub profile in advance since they can enter the event before it starts. On the other hand, attendees may only edit their virtual event hub profile once the attendees are allowed to enter the event, which is normally 30 minutes before the event.

Why can't I edit my name and pronouns? The fields are greyed out.

  • If you are a speaker, this is most likely because the event admin has this section toggled off:

  • Please reach out to the event admin to have this option toggled on.

  • You can also check out this article on Speaker Onboarding for editing your profile as a speaker.

Can I add other photos or files to my profile?

  • No, you can't. You may update your profile photo and a video intro, though.

Can other fields be added to the attendee profile?

  • You cannot add more fields to the attendee profile, even if you add them to your order form.

  • However, admins can disable the Pronouns field and the option to Accept Direct Messages in Settings > General Settings
