How does a virtual exhibition work?

Exhibitions continue to be one of the most effective ways of promoting your latest products and services, as well as sharng your company message with a targeted audience. Our virtual exhibition will work in the same way. You can promote your business to targeted groups of attendees and unlike a real exhibition, our doors will remain open for 6 weeks instead of 3 days!

The virtual exhibition hall will work in a similar way to the physical exhibition. Visitors will be able to browse the hall and visit virtual booths. They can view your profile to find out about the services you offer, view product videos and other content, as well as request a meeting or live chat.

Visitors will be able to search for an exhibiting company alphabetically, by company name or stand number, or search for exhibitors within a specific market sector or by product type, this will be linked to the information you provide under your Market Sectors.

How can we generate sales leads from a virtual booth?

Through our online exhibition you will be able to populate your virtual booth with company information, product videos, meeting time availability as well as photos, pdfs and other information you wish to share with our visitors. Unlike a live show, you will be able monitor and record statistics of the attendees visiting your stand, looking at the most popular areas of your booth as well as how many downloads and video plays so you can share leads with your team to follow up.

You can update your booth as often as you like over the 6 weeks its live, to keep visitors coming back.


How long will my virtual booth stay live?

All virtual booths will stay live for 6 weeks after the event dates – 7-9 December – and our regular promotional activities and emails will continue to drive traffic to the event.
