Marcom ACE is a simple online appointment scheduling tool. All WYSTC business appointments are managed online, booked and confirmed before the conference using Marcom ACE.
When will Marcom be open?
Marcom will be opened approximately one month in advance of the event. The exact date will be announced closer to the conference. An email will be sent to registered attendees when the profiles are uploaded. From here you will have time to go in and finalise your profile before it’s visible to other delegates. In the weeks prior to the event, the platform will go live for trading. Then, you will be able to schedule business appointments.
I have never used Marcom before, where can I find a tutorial?
The first time you log in, there will be a quick tour to show you the features of Marcom ACE. We highly recommend that you follow the tour and get familiar with the system.
Why can’t I upload my headshot/company logo?
The requirements for headshot and company logo are between 400×400 px and 2000×2000 px in JPG, JPEG or PNG format. Please upload a professional headshot as it will be featured on your delegate badge. Pictures of your company logo, office and group pictures are not accepted as headshots.
Can I change my name and company name on Marcom?
Unfortunately, you are not able to change your name and company name on Marcom by yourself. If you would like to make modifications, please contact the WYSTC events team. If you would like to transfer the registration to someone else within the registered organisation, an administrative fee of EUR 150 per name change will be charged.
Where can I access the full WYSTC 2023 delegate list?
