Called “Virtual Show,” the online program allows show visitors to:
- Search for
specific products, product categories and/or exhibitors they wish to see.
- Virtually “walk” the exhibit halls and scroll
over a booth to get more information.
- Automatically request meetings
with the companies they are interested in seeing.
- Plan events and meetings
and automatically update them in Outlook Calendar.
- Automatically add booths
to a planner based on preselected criteria.
- Map the best course through the exhibit halls based on products/criteria selected.
“With nearly 1,900 exhibitors, more than 100 educational sessions, and special events taking place at AHR Expo, we believe 'Virtual Show' will be valuable in helping both attendees and exhibitors plan their time more efficiently,” says Clay Stevens, president of International Exposition Co., Westport, Conn., which produces and manages the the show.
Attendees can find the tool by going to the “Visitors” tab at the top of the AHR Expo website and scrolling down to the “Virtual Show.” Exhibitors can find it by going to the “Exhibitors” tab at the top of the page, scrolling down and clicking on “Floor Plan” and then clicking on the “Interactive Floor Plan.”
The 2011 AHR Expo will take place January 31-February 2 at the convention center in Las Vegas.
