Will all E3 2021 participating companies have booths?

No, not all participating companies will have a booth. You can see a list of all companies with virtual booths on the homepage of the website.

How do I see events exhibitors are hosting?

When you view an Exhibitor’s booth page, you will be able to see available time slots to attend industry events.

How do I schedule appointments with exhibitors?

Industry professionals can request to schedule an appointment or meeting with exhibitors by going to the events section of the exhibitor’s booth and creating a new request for a meeting.

How do I chat with exhibitors?

Under booths there is a send message button where the industry professional can chat with the booth owners. Note, it is not guaranteed that all exhibiting booths will respond.

What do I do if an exhibitor isn’t being responsive to my meeting requests or direct messages?

If a booth is not being responsive, feel free to continue to try to connect. If ultimately they do not reply, it’s safe to assume they will not be responsive and the booth is meant for visuals and content display.

What’s the difference between the portal and app?

Every effort has been made to have parity between the desktop and the mobile app, so there should be slim to no difference.
