Your organisation type will determine under which category you can apply to participate at YoMo (see section 4 of the Application Guidelines).
Interactive stands have to present an engaging, hands-on activity designed for attendees to simply drop in and participate on an ad-hoc basis.
We only accept interactive stands that commit to participate on all five days of the festival. If your organisation wishes to participate for only 1, 2, 3, or 4 days at an interactive stand, you must form a partnership with an exhibitor that wants to host your activity at their stand. Each day only a single activity description can be promoted through the website and event guide.
Find out more about the type of interactive activities at stands we are looking for in section 6 of the Application Guidelines.
A number of interactive stand spaces are available across the show floor in varying sizes from 3m x 3m or more.
All stand spaces are provided as ‘space only’ stands, with signage indicating your stand number. We only provide the space – we do not provide exhibition structures, carpet or power. Only YoMo Supporter and GSMA Awarded stand spaces include basic power outlets and carpet.
The stand packages do not include any dedicated Wi-Fi or wired Internet services, but YoMo will provide a public Wi-Fi service at the show floor that includes up to 2Mbps of upload connectivity per device.
Workshops are hands-on project based activities in a classroom setting for up to 45 young people, for a set period of no more than 45 minutes, that enables attendees to complete a set task.
Each workshop should be designed to provide a hands-on experience for all attendees. Workshops should begin by briefly showing children the basics (the workshop materials and processes), and by giving a demonstration.
Find out more about the type of workshops we are looking for in section 6 of the Application Guidelines.
Each workshop session will be scheduled for two repeated sessions either during the morning or during the afternoon. If timeslots are available, workshop sessions may be scheduled repeatedly for multiple days.
Presentations are an expert explanation with a theoretical component that is as engaging and interactive as possible. Each presentation session will be held in front of about 75 teenaged children and should last no longer than 30 minutes.
Find out more about the type of presentations we are looking for in section 6 of the Application Guidelines.
There are two options where a show may perform:
– A 200 seat auditorium with a basic configuration, audio, video and lightning, along with operating technicians
– An open stage on the show floor, with no seats and a basic configuration, audio, video and lightning along with operating technicians

In order to maximise audience and available content all shows must last no longer than 30 minutes.
Shows may be scheduled as a one-off, once per day, or repeatedly per day or for multiple days.
We are looking for activities that deliver exciting and interesting content, encourage interaction, and – above all – inspire and educate young people. Activities should be related to STEAM and answer to YoMo’s “ingredients” of being inspiring, attractive, fun, hands-on, interactive, innovative and daring.
Please use the following questions to explain to us why your activity is “right” for YoMo.
