Virtual Expo FAQs
What is a virtual live event? A live virtual event connects vendors with customers in a face to face interaction. The vendor's booth is set up off-site and customers have the opportunity to click through to a live chat with the vendor. This is all done through a single event page - Booth Central.
What will it look like? The "front" of your booth will be a group of images you provide (or video too!) when you register for the Expo. As customers scroll through the vendor "booths" or "tiles," they will see your pictures, a description of your business and a button to click through to your website.
I'm not "techy." Am I going to be able to figure this out? We think it's simple enough that anyone can do it. Step 1: Log into the event webpage. Step 2: Click the "Start Video Chat" button. Step 3: Get ready to meet your customers!
Do I need to download anything? Nope!
How do I sign up? The sign up process is done through Booth Central. Just click on "Click Here to Register" down below. The information you provide on your application will auto populate to the Expo webpage.
Should I set up my full booth just like an "in-person" event? Events like this are still new, so you are a trailblazer in figuring out what works best. We recommend taking some time before the Expo, setting up a display and looking at it through your camera. Does it look cluttered? Boring? What catches your eye?
What if I want to make sales? We recommend two options. 1) If you have an online store, customers can click out of the chat and into your website. Be prepared with clear instructions. 2) Provide the customer with your PayPal address. When they pay, ask them to include the item they are purchasing in the "Note."
How many customers can enter my booth at one time? Just like your booth at our in-person Expo can fill up, so can your online booth. We max the capacity at five, which is primarily so that everyone's internet connection can provide a quality video experience for your customers.
What do I do if I can't get something to work? Booth Central provides Chat help during the course of the event. With one click, someone will be there to provide you or your customer with technical support.
Am I required to be live during the event? The live portion of the Expo will run from 9 am - 1 pm on Saturday, April 3. While we think the experience will be better for you and your customer if you are live, you certainly don't have to be present. Simply complete the application and your tile will show on the site. Customers can still access your website and webstore provided you supply that information on the application.
