Virtual Exhibits

This year FABA is offering a virtual Exhibitor Hall.  Attendees will browse your virtual booth exactly as they would at an in-person event. 

Virtual exhibitors can set up their own profile by creating an account at BehaviorLive.com.   It is the exhibitor’s responsibility to set up their own profile. It is recommended that profiles are complete the week prior to the event.   

BehaviorLive's virtual conference platform has a very robust exhibitor booth capability.  Your exhibit pages can be customized with company information including static images, PDF docs, short videos, and/or links to websites.  This allows exhibitors to connect with attendees as they would during an in-person event.  Attendees can “visit” your booth to learn more about your company, access to screen sharing to demo your product download documents that you provide, chat and/or video conference with an exhibitor and a log to track everyone who visits your virtual booth.   

Documentation for exhibit booths can be found here:

https://support.behaviorlive.com/hc/en-us/sections/360009589233-Exhibits-Sponsorships

In the past virtual exhibitors have left the BehaviorLive platform open on their computer while going about their regular work day.   When an attendee is visiting your booth, you will be notified so that you can engage with them, however, engagement is not mandatory.  If an exhibitor is away from their virtual booth, attendees can still play videos, download documents, and check in.
