Basic profile #
Click on your user name in the navigation menu, select ‘Profile’ from the drop-down and click on ‘Edit’ from the sub-menu.
You’ll see your first name, last name and nickname (these are the same as the entries you made when you registered) and a field called ‘Brief description’.
- Please add a short biog (for individual Professional members) or organisation/company summary (for Partner members).
- Click ‘Save Changes’.
Profile photo #
You’ll need a square photo (individual Professional profiles) or logo (Partner profiles) in PNG or JPG format. We recommend a minimum size of 640px x 640px.
To add your photo, click on ‘Profile photo’ in the left-hand menu in the ‘Edit profile’ screen, upload your photo (cropping if necessary) and click on ‘Crop photo’.
Cover photo #
Your cover photo brands your profile. You can change this at any time, for example if you have new events or products which you’d like to promote.
The recommended size is 1950px w x 450px h but please bear in mind that the cover photo displays differently on different screen sizes and devices.
