Frequently Asked Questions

Our virtual conference will have many of the features of a live event with the convenience of participating right on your screen! Suppliers will have booths to visit where you can discuss opportunities and negotiate deals. When visiting their booth you can communicate with them by text chat, or by audio or video calls. 
This is your opportunity to connect with suppliers you currently do business with, explore opportunities with new vendors and new products, and discuss challenges with your peers. Learn from others how they are adapting their business in this new and evolving environment.
You won’t need anything other than your computer and an internet connection. If you want to participate in video calls with suppliers, you will want to have a camera, speakers, and microphone (many computers have these items built-in). Text chat will not require any special equipment.
The event will take place over three “live” days, with a limited number of hours each day for visiting suppliers at their booths and participating in meetings. The site will remain open for a full month after that to allow more time to connect with suppliers at your convenience.
There will be scheduled appointments and flexible/open meeting time; plus you can log-in to leave suppliers messages at any time to connect outside of the conference live hours.
The allowances will be for the eight-week shipping period after the conference dates.
