ATMOsphere is launching the world’s first natural refrigerant virtual trade show, taking place on 1st – 2nd September 2020. The event will be free to attend.

Be Part of the World’s First Global &
Virtual Natural Refrigerants Trade Show!

The LIVE event will take place over a 24-hour period, encompassing every time-zone, starting with Europe, the Middle East and Africa, followed by North, Central and South America, and finishing with the Asia Pacific region on September 2nd. The website will be accessible for one month post live-event.

During the 24 hour live event, exhibitors will be able to interact with participants through real-time chat, audio and video capabilities. Company delegates will be represented by personalised avatars of their actual images, making them easily recognisable to colleagues.

Easy to navigate and visually captivating, the Virtual Trade Show allows visitors to click through the exhibition halls, attend webinars, and network, recreating the feeling of a physical event.

“We are proud to announce a brand-new virtual trade show, which will be the first in the world for the cooling industry,” said Marc Chasserot, CEO of shecco. “It will bring hundreds of companies and thousands of individuals together to exchange and learn about the latest natural refrigerant technology solutions from the comfort of their home.”

FAQs

How many avatars can exhibitors can have at their booth?

10 avatars can be created per company, but only 3 will be displayed at the same time. The rest will be stored in the back-end, and once a company delegate logs-out, another can log-in.

What happens if I’m busy chatting with an attendee and someone else wants to talk, do they receive a notification?

Since the main communication channel is text-chat, it is possible for the company delegate to answer several requests at a time. However, when it comes to video calls, if the delegate is already on a call, the visitor will see that they are not available. Furthermore, if the delegate wants to go on a break, they can log-out and their avatar will disappear. 

The live event is 24 hours. If an exhibitor is not online, what happens if an attendee wants to communicate with them? Does the exhibitor receive a notification, and can they contact the attendee afterwards? 

Yes, attendees can leave a message at the booth, which will be sent to the exhibitor via email.

What are the booth requirements and do exhibitors have to upload the banner ads?

The software provider will be directly in contact with exhibitors before the event to prepare the virtual booths. Exhibitors will receive a few templates to choose from in terms of booth layout/ design. The functionality of the booth – material you can include such as videos, product info, brochures – is the same for all.

How do we access the Virtual Trade Show?

The Virtual Trade-Show platform is a website, no apps or plug-ins need to be installed. It’s a user-friendly experience. 

How long will the Virtual Trade Show website stay online?

The website will conveniently stay online for a month after the LIVE event, so anyone who missed the full-day event can access the website, view the booths, download material etc. But they can no longer chat live with exhibiting company representatives. 

Does the Virtual Trade Show replace regional ATMOsphere events,  such as ATMOsphere America or ATMOsphere Europe 2021?

No. The Virtual Trade Show was launched in response to major trade shows around the world being cancelled or postponed. It’s the perfect opportunity to keep business moving in 2020. The show will include expo halls, exhibition booths and webinar presentations. Whereas ATMOsphere conferences are based on panel discussions, thought leadership and market-trend analysis. 

How do attendees find our booth?

There is an exhibitor listing at the information booth and a search function, for easy navigating. If you are a Premium exhibitor, you get your logo displayed in the main Entrance Hall, which directly clicks-through to your booth.

How will attendees know about our webinar?

There will be an event program available at the information booth in the Entrance Hall. Webinars (as well as exhibitors) will be promoted during the pre-event marketing campaigns.

Who invites attendees?

Thanks to media partnerships around the world, attendees will be invited to attend for free through news channels, social media, internal corporate promotion and paid advertising.

Can interested exhibitors see an example of the exhibition area?

We have images available immediately and will be able to share a demo video closer to the date.

What kind of material can we add to our booth?

There will be a “book shelf” where marketing material, catalogues, brochures and product info can be added as PDFs. You can also add videos. Premium exhibitors get a 3D rendering of a product displayed and when an attendee clicks on it, product info will display, or they will be able to chat live with a company representative about it. 

If the event takes place over a 24-hour period, are exhibitors expected to be online the entire time?

Ideally, one or more company representatives would be online and available to engage with attendees during business hours in their time-zone. If your company has offices in various regions, you are encouraged to coordinate internally to have someone available during numerous time-zones. If this is not possible, an attendee will not be able to chat with you live, but you will get their questions via email. In addition, exhibitors will receive a user report post-event.

Can presenters share-screen during meetings in their private meeting room?

The private meeting rooms offer a screen sharing as well as a whiteboard function. Imagine a Zoom meeting (but using our own integrated software), where everyone can enter by just clicking a button.

Is there a limit to how many files we can upload to our booth?

No. The software provider will inform exhibitors on what format the documents, videos and links must be in. The exhibitor will have the possibility to upload the files themselves through a configurator.

What type of information will be included in the user-report provided to exhibitors after the event?

Here are some examples of the information included in the user-report:

– Total registrations to the event
– Analysis of event participants (name, email etc.) *in accordance with privacy laws
– Visitor geography
– Visitors per booth
– Unique views per video
– Chat data

What time does the event start?

The event will begin at 10am CET, the Middle East and Africa, followed by North, Central and South America, and finishing with the Asia Pacific region on September 2nd.

What type of networking opportunities will there be?

There is a lounge area where attendees can connect and talk to each other. The lounge area will be managed by topics, and also have open discussion opportunities.
