Based on lessons learned from the initial ATMO VTS, a number of changes are added to ATMO VTS 2.0. “We have listened to feedback from attendees and exhibitors, and are working hard to improve the platform to meet your needs,” noted Chasserot.
Among the changes are a longer and comprehensive 24-hour webinar program, with live streaming functionality for exhibitors; an increased focus on networking, an additional focus on products and services, a comprehensive exhibitor directory and an attendee search feature.
“ATMO VTS 2.0 will give that ‘real’ trade show feeling, which is much needed these days,” added Chasserot. “The platform allows us to explore different rooms, listen to live presentations scheduled throughout the 24 hour period to include all time zones, and establish valuable connections with customers and suppliers. of the whole world. “
“We expect over 100 exhibitors and 10,000 attendees to join us for VTS 2.0 on March 30 and 31, 2021 – save the date! »Said Chasserot.
