Online ASM Sponsorship Manual (OLD)

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

What does an online exhibition look like?

For the 2020 ASM 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.
