What is “The Online Hunting Expo”?
This is the first visually rich online EXPO for the Hunting & Wingshooting industry that allows hunters from all over the world to get the latest information about their next hunting trip. Participants can access Virtual Booths where they can view, download and browse content like brochures, images and videos. They can then save interesting items to a Virtual Briefcase that they can download later. The exhibitors can start direct conversations with attendees using text, audio and video chat, in a 1:1 chat or group chat setting. In the auditorium speakers are sharing the latest hunting related news, companies can present themselves via image-video and producers of guns, equipment or optics can show their latest innovations… this happens via pre-recorded videos or semi-live sessions. The platform offers support for all devices and has mobile friendly versions of the event allowing the clients to engage on the go.
