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 all three days of the festival. If your organization wishes to participate for only 1 or 2 days at an interactive stand you must form a partnership with an exhibitor that wants to host your activity at their stand for the days you are not participating. YoMo will try our best to match you with other activity providers based on final submissions received. Please note on 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 Participation Guidelines.
A number of interactive stand spaces are available across the show floor in varying sizes from 10ft x 10ft 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 60 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 Participation Guidelines.
Each workshop session will be scheduled for at least 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 40 teenage kids and should last no longer than 45 minutes.
The presentation room will be equipped with a laptop, lectern and presentation screen. Due to the proximity of presentation spaces to the noise of the show floor, each presentation space will have a small audio system available to assist presenters in communicating to participants.

In order to maximize audience and available content all shows must last no longer than 60 minutes (but ideally 30 mins).
We will schedule one show in the morning and one show in the afternoon. 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.
You need to describe the activity as best you can; appear attractive and appealing as you are competing for attendee attention on a large interactive event.
Your answers to the following questions will appear within YoMo marketing materials including the YoMo website, social media, and the Event Guide.
