Two Expo Audiences for Half the Price!
As an Exhibitor, you will have your own virtual booth space within the GTR virtual platform where you can share details about your organization and capture leads. As in the past, exhibiting companies will be listed by product/service by searchable product categories in addition to the pdf Exhibitor Guide.
In addition, the following benefits are part of the virtual exhibitor experience:
- Access to leads. Attendees can share their information with you via a virtual business card when visiting your ‘booth’. You can invite attendees to visit you in the networking platform. Each exhibitor will receive the complete attendee list after the event.
- Chat content access. The text content of any attendee who you ‘chat’ with in your ‘booth’ is saved and can be downloaded after the event so you know exactly what was said and to whom for follow up.
- Schedule appointments. Review the online attendee list and invite attendees to schedule a private appointment during the event and for up to 12 months after the event.
- Showcase your company. As a sponsor, you will be featured on the exhibitor listing page. Exhibitors can “reserve” rooms to share a presentation, conduct a demonstration, or give a virtual tour. Limited space available. (View Sponsorships)
Exhibitor hours are 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM with 4 hours dedicated to visiting exhibitors.
Exhibitor cost is $350 and includes unlimited booth personnel.
