WC - Exhibitor guidelines

Please note: This event took place in March 2023. We are keeing the information available on the web for posterity. For more information about upcoming DH-IGNITE events, please click here.

DH-IGNITE is an opportunity for individuals, research groups, and organisations to showcase their digital humanities and computational social sciences work. Do you offer products or services to researchers or institutions interested in digital innovation? Come and share your work and experience!

Exhibition options

Due to the hybrid format of DH-IGNITE, we offer two options for exhibitors:

Physical exhibition spaces

Full guidelines for exhibitors wanting to make use of physical exhibition spaces are available online.

We offer physical exhibition spaces at the venue (Lord Charles Hotel, Somerset West) for exhibitors who are able to join us in person.

Virtual exhibition booths

Full guidelines for exhibitors wanting to make use of the virtual booth option are available online.

DH-IGNITE will use the Zoom Events platform to host the meeting. Zoom Events simulates a physical conference by offering a virtual “lobby” and “expo space”.

Exhibitors are welcome to request a virtual booth to showcase their work.

Virtual and in-person participants will have access to the virtual booths.


SADiLaR is sponsoring exhibition spaces and exhibitor participation in DH-IGNITE.

Physical booths at Lord Charles Hotel

  • Exhibitors will not be charged an exhibition fee.
  • Booth representatives are limited to one person per stand due to limited space at the venue. Should exhibitors want to bring more than one representative, please discuss this with the organising team.
  • The conference day fee, sponsored by SADiLaR, includes tea breaks, lunch, and parking.
  • Travel and accommodation (including breakfast and dinner) for each team member joining the exhibition will be for the exhibitors’ budget.

  • Exhibitors will not be charged an exhibition or participation fee.
