These individuals will be displayed on your virtual booth as a point of contact

· Up to 10 Pre-recorded video files: MP4 format HD resolution 1920px x 1080px (Maximum 5 minutes in length and 500mb in size)

· These are short promo videos (5 mins max) used to showcase your brand and the services you provide. Sponsors typically provide 1-3 videos, but it’s common to not include videos so don’t feel pressured if you have nothing suitable. Attendees don’t have the ability to download these videos.

· These replace the documentation you’d typically have on offer at an expo, but in virtual form. They provide an opportunity to outline what your company does and the value it can provide. Sponsors often use these as an opportunity to outline recent company achievements, company strategies/philosophies, and to forecast the investment opportunities on offer. Attendees will have the opportunity to download these PDFs in their own time, so feel free to make these documents rich in detail.
