The details for the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition and Conference (IBEX) virtual trade show, IBEX Online: A Virtual Event, are taking shape. Scheduled to launch September 29, the free digital trade show will be built around the concepts of connection, new products and innovation, and education.
During the registration process, which will open soon, visitors can build a digital profile and will be offered recommendations for people to meet, exhibitors to visit and education sessions to attend. Exhibitors will be able to collect details for visitors that have viewed or interacted with a product, session or company profile, as well as manage contacts and meetings; while visitors will be able to request meetings and information, and chat live with the virtual booth staff. In addition, all event participants will be able to access a virtual attendance list and chat in either public or private lounges.
Education sessions, which require the purchase of a full-access pass, will be delivered through a combination of live-stream and prerecorded presentations, complete with interactive Q&A sessions and one-on-one conversations. Details are available at www.ibexshow.com.
