If you are partnering with a reputable virtual fair platform, the setup of a virtual fair will take a very short time. This includes time spent on communicating your requirements, running a demo show, training your staff on navigating the event, and final implementation. On the other hand, the preparation of a physical fair will take much longer. It takes months to plan and sponsors to get involved, vendor meetings take weeks to hold, and the show itself takes up all of your event manager's time. Also marketing requires a lot of effort, as it requires both offline and online channels. After the physical fair, cleaning and leaving the venue can take up to 2 days. With the virtual fair, platform providers, who not only organize your fair as a turnkey project, but also provide reliable customer support before, during and after the event and undertake all the stress.
This is true for all virtual fairs and is one of the strongest contributor to the success of virtual events. Virtual fairs often give much higher results in overall engagement, as each visitor has the option to choose the content they want to utilize and save, including webinars, videos, brochures, and e-documents. In a traditional show, your exhibitors need to go through the standard seminar and presentation program, but the 'on demand' viewing feature of virtual fairs allows them to choose their preferred material which increases their interest and conversions. Individual live chats at each session and virtual booth contribute to the personal visitor experience. They can chat with representatives without having to line up in a long queue and fit their questions to 1 minute per person.
If your team has worked hard to create original and engaging content for visitors, you can reuse these materials for content marketing after the event is over. Your promotional videos can be found on your company's website or products page. You can upload webinars to YouTube and share them with your subscribers via email newsletters. If you conducted in-event polls, you can turn these results into a blog post and share them with your followers. You can use incoming questions in your chat interactions to create or update a FAQ page. The possibilities are endless.
Perhaps the most obvious distinction between physical and virtual fairs is that the latter can provide detailed reports. Although there are people who visit a physical fair, take leaflets and leave contact information, there are no tools to accurately measure the results of the fair. The only way to understand how the fair went through is by the participants' thoughts.
One of the biggest benefits of the virtual environment is that it tracks every registered user and records every chat conversation made, videos watched, downloaded and shared files, all uploads made and all transactions performed.
