How to find and deliver the embed URL/link

Retrieve and deliver the right embed URL to the organizers by following the next steps. We have a few examples to show you how easy it is.

Organizers need your company's materials in the right format so they can set up your booth as fast as possible. Therefore it's imperative to find and share the right embed link to Brella to the organizers.

At Brella, you can embed any material to the virtual booth, both in the carousel and the sidebar integrations sections of the booth, the only requirement for these materials is to be embeddable. This way, these can display properly on Brella.

Below we give examples of how to embed a video, a PDF, an image, and a website.

Find the right embed link to set up the virtual booth.

  1. Embed URLs/ links are retrieved from the service providers' site where your content is storedβ€”for example, Google Drive (how-to) or Youtube (how-to).
  2. When you find the embed code for your content, it usually looks something like this:

    <iframe width="966" height="543" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/WOKoMHve3lk" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>


    From this code,
    copy-paste it to the virtual booth form or send it via email to the organizers.

  3. Pasting the complete embed code will prevent your content from showing properly on           Brella. Therefore, ensure to deliver the first link incrusted on the embed code.
  4. Once you have put together all the materials you'd like to have in the virtual booth, deliver your content to the organizers so they can set it up for you. Then, they will give you access to your virtual booth.

❗These steps are meant to be changed and personalized by the organizers we work with. Please, contact your organizers in case of questions.

Image 

  • You can either send images in two ways. You can send the image as downloadable (ratio 16:9) or embeddable images. It's up to you which to choose.
  • In case you need to send an image as an embeddable, you will need to convert the image stored on your computer to an external URL to do so. See a short video clip to obtain the embed link for an image below and read more detailed instructions on how to do it here. 
 

Website

  • Webpages can be embedded in the iFrame on the virtual booths.
  • To embed a website, you will only need the page URL, but please note that many websites have embed restrictions.
  • Below you can find an example where Brella's website is checked for embed restrictions in iframely.
