Relaunching EXTRA

© Mariano Herrera/MCNB

EXTRA, the science touring exhibitions database, was developed almost 10 years ago. It has become THE platform for professionals touring science exhibitions, still very popular to this day. It is however starting to show its age.

We are relaunching EXTRA – jump on board!

The new platform will be going live at the Ecsite Annual Conference on 9-11 June, in Graz, Austria. We will be taking the old website down at the same time. 
We will be entirely redesigning and upgrading the platform in the next few weeks. The new EXTRA marketplace will be integrated in the Ecsite website and will benefit from its robust technical framework and contemporary design. Uploading exhibitions will be reserved to Ecsite members and EXTRA sponsors, while the search function will stay accessible to all.

Already an Ecsite member?

Just make sure you have an Ecsite login 

If your organisation already belongs to Ecsite (check the Members Directory), your exhibitions will be automatically migrated to the new platform. 

All you have to do is check that you have an account on the Ecsite website and that you have the right permissions to publish exhibitions in your organisation's name (you need to be Membership owner, Membership manager or Content manager). If you don't, simply create an account, and follow instructions here to get the right permission.
