After the responsible contact person has "opened" the brand card initially, he/she will register as a participant, then enter the CMS Plus platform and go to the "own organization" (right dropdown menue).

Back Office features are only available to the team members that are listed as part of the organization of the Company Card. These features are the same for alll of the members, and cannot be applied differently.
Show visitors what your product portfolio entails and where you operate. A well maintained category overview gives visitors a first indication on what you as a company offer overall. A Drop-Down menu offers you the possibility to select from various predefined terms in the categories section. Use the search function if you search for specific items instead of scrolling through them all.
When a guest or normal visitor goes to your Company Card and clicks "Register Interest" there, you need to go to your Back Office on your Brand Card and look under "Contact Request". There you will find all requests, whether guest or normal visitor.
For Contact and Meeting Requests in your back office we recommend using the “share” function.
In order to share, please open the chat via the “Chat-Icon” in the persons profile, click on the 3 dots (interaction menu) and click share. You can add a note, e.g. “Contact Request from XY”, or “Meeting Request from XY”. Please note that the note is limited to 150 characters.
This shared profile will appear as a chat notification in your Chat tab and the respective colleague will as well receive a chat notification:
Please note: You can share Persons profiles and Companyc Cards via the “Share-Icon”
The Exhibitor Info-Counter is available for all exhibitors – no matter what package.
Entering the (public) Info-Counter is similar to entering a booth at a trade show. It is an audio/video/chat room where the visitor and anyone else who "enters this booth" has the opportunity to get in direct contact with the exhibitor's selected staff. Exhibitor staff are identified for all attendees in the attendee list. In your back office you can decide which employees are available for the Info-Counter.
These staff members must be actively present in the Info-Counter to welcome guests. We recommend having at least one staff member there at all times to ensure the Info-Counter is activated and available.
The Info-Counter will remain open for visitors even if they navigate to other areas on the CMS Plus platform. A visitor has to actively leave the Info-Counter by clicking on the red handset (hang up)
Functions are similar to e.g. Zoom/MS teams; people can share their video/audio, screen, chat, etc.
To display your Team Members on the Info-Counter please make that the tabs “Networking”; “Allow people to find me” and “Standby Showroom” are activated, as per picture below:
Attention: your Info-Counter will be deactivated if all your Team Members turn off the “Standby Showroom” option.
Here you can add additional contact data of your company.

A Company Card’s Info-Counter is the main access point for visitors' inquiries. You can receive visitors here via video call.

Each team member mannning the Info-Counter must have the profile activated “Standby Info-Counter” as follows:
Attention: Your Info-Counter will be deactivated and therefore not available for visitors if alll your Team Members are deactivated for the Info-Counter. The deactivation can be done from each personal profile (see above) or via Back Office on your Brand Card by clicking on the “Eye” icon next to each team member (see below). Important: You cannot deactive yourself in this view, you have to go to your personal profile.
Keywords are an essential tool in order to increase your chance to be found in the Show Floor via the search function. The search function entails every word that appears somewhere in the entire ITB Berlin NOW platform. Words that are not mentioned in any other section in your Brand Card can be added here, so when visitors actively search for a word you edited here, your Brand Card will be proposed in the search results. These keywords will not be displayed in your Brand Card.
Add additional website links here, for e.g. the homepage of your company and services.
The logo appears in your Company Card in tile and list view, as well as in your Company Card detail page. Please make sure to use the right format and note this information.
