Content is available online when it is convenient for attendees or when attendees can find time. It can also provide opportunities for team members to look at demos that some project members find applicable and rendezvous later to discuss.

Exhibitors are waiting to hear from potential customers and continue to monitor their virtual showrooms. Attendees can simply click the envelope icon under the exhibitor’s contact information to send a message.

“Research shows that engaging with product engineers and technical folks is a top priority among equipment and material buyers. We’re excited about the ability for registered attendees to make direct connections with technical experts. It couldn’t be easier,” comments Dave Newcorn, Senior VP, Digital and Data, PMMI Media Group.
