Exhibitor Opportunities (Closed)
The 2020 Virtual Conference is our annual showcase event and an opportunity for companies to exhibit products and services and network with the industry. We recognize that shifting to online events results in drastic changes to the exhibitor experience. That is why we want to connect with you to give you a clear, complete picture of your return on investment as a 2020 Virtual Conference exhibitor.
We have heard from exhibitors that networking is an integral component of these events and have conducted extensive and thorough research of virtual conferencing platforms to maximize your experience. The Nextech/Inferno AR system we are using for our event supports customizable and interactive virtual booths, including customizable branding and advertisement, variable format content uploads, live text-chat with attendees, video chat, and contact cards. To see how the exhibitor booths look and function, please see our BOOTH BROCHURE and DEMO VIDEO.
In addition to a purchased booth, sponsors and exhibitors can expect exposure across the conference platform, and opportunities to connect with audiences in sessions and scheduled networking portions. Exhibitor logos will be featured in select organizational distributions and publications and within the virtual platform.
