At least one Marketplace entry is required for profile validation. We suggest you create meaningful and attractive Marketplace items and remember: your profile is the FIRST impression other participants receive from you!

  • All published (validated) profiles will be extensively promoted by organisers and co-organisers. All participants to the event will view your profile and will browse the Marketplace. 
  • High-quality profiles are visited about 50-150 times BEFORE the event and will still be viewed AFTER.
