We do have 10 booths available for Affiliates, Movement Groups, General Wiki Projects and Conference Partners to exhibit at the virtual Wiki Indaba 2021 conference. You can use the booth to get attendee traffic around the work that you are doing and generate more traction and support for your work and local communities! There are only limited spaces available and booths will be assigned on a first come first serve basis.

The conference platform we are using is Airmeet, and it will give you access to the following features as an exhibitor.

  • Add a logo and banner image
  • A video link
  • Resources/Slides: You can add up to five items
  • Social media links to connect with attendees
  • Booth tables to meet directly with attendees. (Note, you don't have to be at the booth at all the time, Airmeet will notify you if an attendee is at the booth and wants to meet)
