“We were searching for a solution to meet the needs of our members while moving education beyond webinars and traditional learning,” said Anthony Darkangelo, CEO of FCA International. “The experience is beyond what any participant may have previously experienced,” said Darkangelo.
“USGlass magazine has been working on a virtual event for quite a while,” said vice president of media services, Holly Biller. “The cancellation of most major industry events increased the urgency. Now, attendees can participate in education and visit the trade show—all while never leaving home.”
Sponsors supporting the event will have virtual booth spaces where they will be able to engage with attendees through live chat functions. Networking lounges, resource centers and other interactive avenues are also available for participants to connect. For a preview, click here.
