Option A (share page):

  1. Go to the stand you are interested in.
  2. Pick the name on top of the list of exhibitors and use the page share function to notify the person.

Option B (comment page):

  1. Search for a stand and person you want to talk to.
  2. Make a comment at the bottom of their page letting them know that you want an appointment.
  3. It is important that you activate watch on your stand. This assures that you are notified by mail when comments your page.

Option C (open Jitsi):

  1. You would define an opening hour in you table.
  2. Launch the Jitsi video chat at the beginning and wait for someone to come. Just click on the link that you find in your event or opening hour table to the right. Jitsi is a secure open source video chat solution. It is offered by a range of providers for free.
  3. Continue working on other stuff or read a book while none is in the room but leave your speakers on.
  4. When someone is coming into your Jitsi chat room you will hear a sound. Go there and say hello, and start your conversation.

Natacha Agbo from AFRIS updates the list every evening before 17:00 WET (UTC+1). We are a very small team and cannot make adjustments in between. Therefore, we ask you to make your plans well in advance and check the information in your table of opening hours and events regularly. Make sure that the dates and times are correct and that they are in the correct format.

6. Video Chat - How does Jitsi work ? (Question from Pascal Lienhard - Stand 052

 Click here to expand...

We suggest Jitsi for video chat. It is secure, open source, free, simple and easy to use. Users can easily connect with their browser without installing any software. To connect they just need to share the link to the Jitsi room with the interlocutors. It works best with Chrome. There are many organizations that have Jitsi installed on their servers and offer the service for free (free servers in Germany). The quality may vary from one provider to another, but it also depends a lot on your computer's bandwidth and performance. Jitsi also works well with smartphones, either with the browser or the app (android 1, android 2 or apple). Try it out if you have problems with your PC or firewall. Watch the video to get familiar with Jitsi.
