Do I need to download or install any software?
Yes. Exhibitors will need to install the “Zoom Client for Meetings” located at https://zoom.us/download. The IWCS Virtual Event Platform uses Zoom Technology to power its live meeting functionality and virtual booths. We recommend you install this software in advance to streamline your presentation at show time.
What Browser should I use?
We strongly recommend you use Chrome or Microsoft Edge for the best functionality. Due to limitations within Zoom, attendees using Safari, Firefox, or other browsers may have to dial in via telephone in order to hear the meeting audio. Telephone dial-in numbers are provided once you join the broadcast.
How do I register my booth staff?
Exhibitor Contacts receive a link and password to the Exhibitor Registration Portal where you will be able to register your booth staff. Exhibitor booth staff will be able to manage the virtual booth, participate as a booth staff member during the live, virtual exhibition hours and set up your organization’s booth pages.
Will exhibitors have access to the attendee list?
Yes! Exhibitors will be able to browse the registered attendees, schedule appointments, send messages, and reach out to potential customers on the IWCS Virtual Event platform.
How does the Live Virtual Supplier Exhibition work?
The promotional content you choose to display in your booth will be available for attendees to digest starting the week before the event begins. During the week of the event (October 4–8), there will be dedicated “LIVE” hours, in which many Exhibitors may choose to have staff available for “LIVE” zoom calls and chats in their booths. View the resources section on this page to discover additional details about the Virtual Supplier Exhibition.
