“Large corporations and some progressive exhibition businesses were already investing in digital alternatives and virtual companion shows,” confirms David Bedford, Director of Marketing at V-Ex. “Current events have meant that plans are being accelerated and visitor numbers for events already open such as www.IndustryExpo.online have skyrocketed.”
There are a huge number of practical and ecological benefits to hosting an event online.
