Can you send files and images?

To keep people safe, we don’t allow anyone to send files or images through direct messaging. But as an exhibitor or speaker, we encourage you to add downloadable resources to your exhibitor suite, speaker page, or session page.

Exhibitors can follow these instructions to add resources your suite. Talk to your event organizer about adding resources to speaker or session pages.
