You can imagine a digital room to be almost like an analogue one: something is happening in it and it can be equipped with different things (room type).

Every digital conference on DINA has a so-called microsite. It is your space to be really creative and provide all relevant information about your event. Furthermore, interested parties can also register for the event via the microsite.
Currently, participants of a digital conference on the DINA platform still need a user account. However, we are working on providing access to digital events without an account. An external user with a login and password will then be able to gain temporary access to a conference. As soon as this function is available, it will be displayed to the conference admin.
