How does the IT Major Incident Management Virtual Expo work?

Having pre-registered for the show, you’ll be able to explore the exhibitions and visit all of the exhibition stands. You can browse the show by moving down the aisles using your mouse, or head directly to a specific exhibitor’s stand using the interactive floorplan. Once at a stand you’ll be able to watch videos and download literature about the product or services and will be able to request further information from any companies that are of interest to you and talk via text or video conference to an industry expert via the Expo’s messenger function. All information can be saved to your virtual goodie bag to refer back to after you leave the exhibition.
