Sponsors & Exhibitors Manual | Online

What does an online exhibition look like?

For the 2021 conference, we will be using a platform called OnAIR by EventsAIR.

Just like a traditional exhibition at a face to face meeting, attendees can visit the virtual exhibition hall and engage with exhibitors. Attendees can view exhibitor information, download brochures, and when the exhibition is open, engage in instant meetings with exhibitors.

OnAIR is a fully integrated and secure platform optimised for fully virtual events as well as hybrid events.

What you need to participate?

In order to participate as an online exhibitor at the conference and make the most of the exhibition opportunities available, each of your exhibiting staff members will need access to a device (laptop, desktop, phone, tablet etc…), internet, a webcam and a microphone.

For best user experience, we recommend using Google Chrome 2010+.

LEAD MANAGEMENT

The ‘Lead Management’ function of the online portal enables sponsors to connect and exchange contact information with delegates, in the digital environment also called ‘lead capture’.

The Lead Capture is enabled only when staff engage in a live chat or live video meeting through their virtual booth with an attendee.

Prior to the conference you can create a list of customised questions through the exhibition portal that you wish for your staff to ask delegates during the online conference. This will serve as a template for use for your representatives to collect the delegates responses. The information captured through Lead Management can be used for marketing and follow-up post-event.

Once a ‘lead capture’ is complete in the system, an email is automatically dispatched to your organisations main contact with the answers and participating delegates information (name, position, organisation & email address). Delegates will also receive a separate email to say ‘thank you for meeting with us/visiting our display’ (custom text to be supplied by exhibitor).

Please contact Tara Johnson if you have any questions regarding the set up of lead management.
