  • Main presentation (e.g. webcast)
  • Breakout sessions (where applicable)
  • Event information and material (agenda, speaker biographies)
  • Collaboration tools (e.g. networking, chat, Q&A)
  • Kiosks

vExpo Kiosk

The virtual kiosks are used by departments, communities, and program areas to showcase their initiatives and share information about their products and services, in a visual and interactive format. The kiosks can be integrated as part of a vExpo, Web presence or promotional package. Kiosks usually include:

  • Kiosk name (name of the department or initiative)
  • Content (visuals and decorative text with links to websites, videos, etc.)
  • Contact information (email, social media)
