About Our Event Platform Whova
Virtual and in-person attendees will all have access to our virtual conference platform called Whova. It is an app/website where attendees (in-person and virtual) can go to explore the conference, interact with each other, access sessions (virtual audience), and visit vendor booths digitally as well as participate in the passport contest. This secure and private platform won't be available for attendees until late-January (giving you time to get prepared).
The virtual platform replaces our printed show guide Your updated company profile is critical.
Whova has both a mobile app as well as access through your desktop computer. There are some things that are done just through the app. Like for vendors, exporting your lead list. For attendees, it certainly makes it easier for them to interact "on the go" at the live show.
Schedule of Events for Preparing Your Digital Booth
Prize Giveaways if you had a giveaway, raffle or coupon you were giving away at your virtual booth, notify winner(s) by this date and confirm directly with them about shipping or delivery method.

How to Optimize Your Digital Booth
1. Watch the Exhibitor Guide Video
See video above or watch here. This six-minute video is a great introduction to the platform for exhibitors. Watch now!
2. Access Your Booth Profile Form
You will need your company's personal URL so you can update your virtual booth before we publish the event. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need it resent.
Once you have the link, click it. You will see your company's name at the top and several sections that you can use to enhance your profile. Here are our tips to approach:
3. Add a Promotional Offer (optional)
It is highly recommended that you add a promotional offer because you will get a list of all attendees that claimed your offer, and it helps build your exhibitor lead list. Bingo bango!
You can choose from:
We recommend one big prize for a raffle (1 Apple Watch, 90-days of free marketing services ,XX promotional gift items for your next big drawing!)
We recommend a set number of smaller prizes for a giveaway (i.e. 10 gift boxes from XYZ Company, 5 amazon gift cards)
Probably the easiest to do! (20% training services, 50% off your first order with us)
Have some fun and be creative! Think how your promotional offer ties into your product and use the promotions details box to explain further. You can upload up to five (5) images to support your promotion.
Reminder: Your team is responsible for executing on the giveaway, so be prepared after the conference to select and contact winners and participants. You will be able to export a list of all attendees who claimed your promotion via the mobile app.
4. SKIP Live Demo
We are not using the in-booth Live Demo function for our 2022 event. We have scheduled networking breaks for attendees to interact with you at your booth.
5. Add a Product Video (optional)
Copy and paste the url of any video link you have uploaded to Youtube, Vimeo, Wistia, or other media site. This video will be embedded at your booth, and play automatically when someone stops by! It's a great way to get people to "like" your booth and showcase what your team is all about.
6. Add Brochures or Handouts (optional)
You can upload a maximum of two (2) PDF brochures or marketing materials.
7. Review Your Company Information
Probably the easiest section to complete! Please confirm your details (we gave you a head start and filled in some items for you!):
Logo - If you need to upload a new logo, please use 256x256 px size (optimal dimensions for desktop and app).
8. Upload Company & Product Photos (optional)
Upload any photos of your team, business, product, service that support what you do! You get 50 photos ... go to town!
9. Confirm Your Primary Contact
You will see your COMPANY NAME (email@example.com) Attendees will see this email address under the contact information for your booth. If you need to change, email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP with the email and full name of your primary contact.
When you are done, check the box to agree to terms and privacy then hit SUBMIT.
