I want to change my company’s logo/biography/products on the website, how can it be done?
This can be done by yourself in the exhibitor profile. Please search for “Welcome to TOC Africa 2017: Your Logins” e-mail in your inbox for a personalised link for your online exhibitor profile.
How do I change my company name displayed on the website?
This can be done through us directly, please send us an e-mail request with the new company name.
Product descriptions are not displayed on the website.
Sometimes this happens because there are foreign letters/symbols present in text, that prevent biographies and descriptions to be seen. Some of the symbols include Ä,Ö,Ü,ẞ, ™, ° and more.
Please check the text on the presence of foreign letters and symbols, remove them, save changes and refresh your profile. If the problem remains, please contact us.
How can I change company contact details in case they are not correct?
Please send us an e-mail with new contact details, they should include:
Are the badges compulsory?
The badges are compulsory for everyone who wants to be on site during exhibition, this includes visitors, exhibitors, speakers and delegates. They should be registered prior the event through N200 platform.
What is N200?
N200 is our registering platform in which you can register yourself and your colleagues for badges, track how many visitors registered for the show using your registration link, order lead capture devices for your stand.
How do I register myself and my colleagues for badges?
Please search for “Welcome to TOC Africa 2017: Your Logins” e-mail in your inbox for a personalised link to your registration page.
Once you are on it, go to “Events”.
Check if the event is TOC Africa 2017
Go to “Personnel” to register badges and click the “New” button.
Then you will be able to register your personnel by filling in their personal details.
I cannot remember my logins for N200 badge registration page.
If you have never used this system before, you should create a new account by filling the fields on the right-hand side. If you have used it for previous shows, but you cannot remember it, you can easily reset it by pressing “Forgot password” button and choosing “e-mail” version in a new window.
Our company account with N200 was set up on my colleagues’ name, who is away/out of office/ quit. How do I retrieve access?
It is better to liaise with your colleague and obtain logins from the colleague personally. Due to data protection law, we do not have access to exhibitors’ logins as they are created by themselves.
I do not see TOC Americas 2017 in events drop down.
This can happen if you use an old link to N200, as each event has its own link for registration, it is important to use the one that was sent to you in a welcome e-mail.
Another reason for this might be you ended up in a wrong section of the platform. If you find yourself on Visit Connect and not Visit Partner, please follow the steps below:
go to “My Account” on the left-hand side menu.
This will take you to a new page where you will see the menu below, click on “Visit Partner”.
From there you will be able to see the right menu for badge registration.
I have more than 20 personnel to register for badges, is there a shortcut?
In such case, you can import an Excel spreadsheet. Please click on "New" button and select "Import Personnel". You will need to download the template and populate it with the required information, then you will be able to import the spreadsheet into the system.
What are personalised banner and e-invitation and where can I use them?
Personalised banner is an image created by us to help you to promote your attendance at the show. Personalised banners have your company’s logo, stand number, event dates and places. Banners can be used on your website in “events” section, can be posted on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

Who is the official event guide company?
Our official publication partner is Event Guides Ltd.
It has come to our attention across several UK exhibitions that exhibitors (previous and current) are being contacted by third parties claiming to be collating an exhibitor's directory. Please ignore their correspondence as this is a scam. The companies in question also claim to be offering online services and use a form which resembles an organiser's free catalog listing service, inviting exhibitors to sign and return the form for an entry in a directory. Please ignore any communication from Fairguide and Expo-Guide.
All exhibitors will be contacted directly by Event Guides Limited, Official Exhibition Guide publisher concerning their complimentary entry.
Who can enter the official event guide?
Exhibitors who complete their profiles on the website will be included in the event guide. The information you enter in the exhibitor profile on the website, such as company’s biography, contact details, website address will be used to fill in the profile in the official event guide.
How will information about my company be displayed in the event guide?
Each exhibitor has a profile that looks like the example below.
