Understand Zoom Events Expo
As part of Zoom Events, Expo is a feature that allows event organizers to set up a virtual exhibition that allows attendees to meet other exhibitors and booths at the show and learn more about what exhibitors have to offer.
In addition to exploring and networking in person on the expo floor, attendees can also do so virtually, just as they would in person. You have the opportunity to visit an exhibitor stand, exchange ideas with other participants and network with exhibitors in the Expo area.
