Using the platform to create new sponsorship offerings and revenue streams

29 April

4 pm BST | 11 am ET

There is a huge amount of discussion around how to sell a virtual offering, how to convince your exhibitors to give budget to online events and the best way for sales people to be upskilled in this area. But the key to success comes down to our arsenal in terms of what we can now sell. Attend this panel session to pick up a wealth of creative new ideas regarding our new virtual inventory. We are no longer selling square metres, but there is so much more of value out there now for our sponsors.
