EXPO HALL Virtual Exhibition Hall
A virtual exhibition is an exhibition whose venue is cyberspace, there is no physical existence of it. It is a digital entity that draws on the characteristics of an exhibition hall, in order to complement, enhance, or augment the exhibition hall experience through personalization, interactivity and richness of content. Virtual exhibition halls can perform as the digital footprint of a physical exhibition hall, or can act independently, while maintaining the authoritative status
The structure of the show includes a virtual exhibition hall which a user can enter with specific permissions and capabilities. Exhibitors can build virtual booths to exhibit information related to their products or services, just as they would at a trade fair in the convention center.
Visitors view these virtual trade show displays in the exhibition hall. Users – both exhibitors and visitors – within the environment often create avatars as a visual representation of themselves. Like their physical counterparts, virtual tradeshows may have other components such as a web conference, webcast, web seminar (‘webinar’), or other educational presentations. The virtual trade fair thus provides live interaction between users on several levels (one-to-one, one-to-few, one-to-many and many-to-many) and simultaneously.
