Yes, exhibitors can place external URLs and links to their social media channels in their company profile.

 

You can upload as many files as you like. However, please note that a maximum size of 100 MB per file may not be exceeded.

 

We cannot recommend that you show videos via screenshare in the audio-video rooms of the private meeting rooms. This is because in these cases the current version of AGRITECHNICA digital does not transmit a high resolution and sound quality. This is also the case on most common platforms. In general, no sound is transmitted during screen transmission, as the audio signal of the video is output locally to the one who shares its screen, so you would only show a video in poor quality and without sound.
