Exhibitors will be able to collect details for visitors that have viewed/interacted with a product, session, or company profile, as well as manage contacts and meetings; while visitors will be able to request meetings and information, and chat live with the virtual booth staff. In addition, all event participants will be able to access a virtual attendance list and chat in either public or private lounges.

Committed to highlighting exhibiting companies and their offerings, IBEX Online: A Virtual Experience will place significant focus on new products for 2020 and Innovation Award product entries.
