Attendees can register for the event online. Take a look at our pass types and register here.
Can I share my login details with my team?
No. All attendees must have their own profile and should not share their login details for data protection reasons. This also enables attendees to get the most out of our A.I. matchmaking functionality.

Attendees should ensure they have the latest version of Chrome or Firefox on their device or via Safari on IOS and of course, a stable internet/wi-fi connection. Swapcard does not work on Microsoft Edge.
When will I receive the instructions for attending the virtual event?
You should receive an email from Swapcard once the platform goes live on December 1, 2020. This is sent from firstname.lastname@example.org and contains a Magic Link to take you to your profile setup.
What if I did not receive the email containing my Magic Link
All the emails sent from Swapcard are sent from email@example.com. It is possible that this email ended up in your Spam folder. If not, check that the email address you are using is correct and contact firstname.lastname@example.org. They will then send you a Magic Link personally.
It is sometimes possible that the email address email@example.com with which we send our communications is blocked by your professional mailbox. If several people from the same company participate in the event and none of them receives the Magic Link, please ask your IT department to authorize the email address firstname.lastname@example.org to facilitate future communications.
