Are you ready to connect with others? Looking for a way to build and expand your network? Interested in supporting the local business community? Are you poised to grow your business? The Chamber's Exposure Committee, chaired by Maddie Nevins of Kent Audio Visual (pictured right), has been hard at work transforming the region's largest business-to-business trade show into an interactive virtual event where you can do all of this and more.
Every fall more than 200 Wichita businesses from a variety of industries promote their newest products and services at the region’s largest business-to-business trade show, Exposure. Hosted by the Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce, Exposure has been re-imagined this year and will utilize an interactive virtual conference platform called Remo, rather than the typical trade show format normally held at Century II.
Chelsea Dyer, Manager of Engagement for the Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce, has also changed the event from a day-long experience to three mini events that will be held October 9, 16 and 23 from 9-11 a.m. Dyer said Exposure remains free to attendees and the virtual platform provides the type of networking opportunities that many people in the business community are seeking. Dyer said, “Our event committee did extensive research and landed on a platform called Remo that allows screen sharing and networking at individual tables and reserved tables for exhibiting businesses. Attendees can easily move between exhibits and interact with each other during the event. They can also participate in gift card drawings that will be held every day during the event.”
Dyer said there’s been a good response from exhibitors like Broadstroke Inc., Friends University and Spectrum, Inc. who are impressed with the easy navigation offered by the platform. Exhibitors have options to participate on the platform at different levels that can be found on the Chamber website. You can also watch these videos for more information.
