Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 26, 2005
Catch the red-eye flight, check into the hotel, take a cab to the tradeshow, spend all day trying to find your colleagues, affiliates and the press, run to sit-in on a few presentations, fight the crowd to do some networking, take a cab back to the hotel, order room-service and soak your sore feet Â sound like the last tradeshow you attended? Savvy business professionals are turning to online tradeshows and the one everyoneÂs been talking about is eComXpo, the premier virtual tradeshow for eCommerce marketers, taking place from Oct. 6-8, 2005. The location? Your very own home or office PC.
eComXpo offers everything a traditional tradeshow does without the time or expense of travel. It allows more people to attend which means greater benefits to exhibitors, speakers and other attendees. ÂOne of my partnersÂ has three kids and she said there is no way she would have been able to pull off three days at a live conference, she was thrilled to be among the industry leaders that eComXpo has assembled Â ,Â commented Dan Ogden of eBags at the inaugural show in February 2005.
What makes a virtual tradeshow so appealing? Outside of the time and cost effectiveness, eComXpo is able to provide a unique way of networking and interacting with affiliates, associates, professionals and even old friends all from the comfort of your own computer.
Rich Garcia of CPAOffers.com said of the first show this past February, ÂWhat was especially nice was being able to instant message folks at the show and quickly find out if our offerings were a fit or not.Â
Exhibitors and attendees can view profiles of show participants and quickly decide who would be most beneficial to talk to through the private instant messaging and email system that eComXpo provides. With eComXpoÂs unique people search, attendees donÂt have to spend hours circling the tradeshow floor and staring at badges trying to find who they need to talk to - they can quickly search and see if someone is at the show; messages can even be left for offline attendees.
eComXpo knows the knowledge gained from attending tradeshows is crucial to growing a business. Shawn Collins of Affiliate Tip commented, ÂÂ the thing that really struck me was the nature of the presentations. They ran over 75 educational sessions led by the leaders in the space. These presentations could be viewed at scheduled times or on demand after the scheduled first run.Â
This exclusive feature is a win-win situation for all. The attendees can attend all the presentations of interest to them 24/7, the speakers are able to deliver their messages to thousands of people, rather than hundreds, and the exhibitors are happy because it allows more attendees to spend more time visiting their booths.
New for the October show is the ability for attendees to view presentations up to 90 days after the show, as well as having access to archived presentations from the February event. Additionally, attendees can join forums and Âhang-outÂ in the virtual lounge anytime throughout the show.
eComXpo attendees including affiliates, search marketers, publishers, advertisers, bloggers, e-retailers, networks, and agencies will be able to visit and interact with hundreds of eCommerce exhibitors including PR WebÂ, Google, Commission Junction, Looksmart, Advertising.com, Performics, Revenue Magazine, Yahoo! Search Marketing and more on both the affiliate and search engine floors. Attendees will also see educational tracks and sessions featuring over 100 presentations from top industry icons, including author, entrepreneur, blogger and agent of change, Seth GodinÂs keynote speech and daily panels including ÂSearch is HOT for Hispanics!Â, ÂWUTEVVER! Online Marketing to TeensÂ, and ÂSo You Want To Be An Author? Tips for Getting Published for the Online MarketerÂ at the October show.
PR WebÂ is the official media wire sponsor for the show and is offering free guest passes to the eComXpo keynote address and exhibition hall to the first 250 bloggers who register at: http://vts.inxpo.com/scripts/lightning.dll?LASCmd=AI:4;F:REG~1000&ShowKey=32&AffiliateKey=46&AffiliateData=BannerAd001&RegistrationDiscountKey=434&ShowPackageKey=1.
