In today's day & age, the idea that you need to be in person for a trade show or expo is simply false. Just like so many other aspects of work & play, the internet provides the capability to do it all from your home or even on the go!

Exploring the Dynamics of a Virtual Expo

Just like an in-person expo, virtual expos allow attendees to browse through and engage with different booths and vendors. Accelevents also offers networking capabilities for expo attendees, making the experience even more valuable. One of the best parts of virtual events is that travel is not an issue for either vendors or attendees, making it an even wider pool for everyone to cast their nets in. Even if you have an in-person event, having a virtual component is important, as nowadays, everyone's glued to their devices.

As the event admin, you can create and sell different tiers of vendor booths. You can allow your participating vendors to pay for a better position in the virtual hall, larger space on the page, or even designate them a Preferred or Premium label.

Once attendees have entered the virtual event, they can visit the virtual expo hall to browse the participating vendors. When they click into a booth, attendees can view any materials uploaded by the vendor, view and engage with a live (or pre-recorded) demo, or even have a one-on-one conversation with a vendor representative. Attendees can also access the booths through the attendee app.

If an attendee engages with a specific vendor, they will be added to a list of leads that the vendor can access to note their interest in their company/product. 

Overall, virtual expos can offer many of the same functions as an in-person event but also lower costs & geographic limits, opening your event to a larger scope.
