Designers Set for October 14 – 16, 2003
CAMPBELL, Calif. – July 29, 2003 – VirtualMCAD 2003, an exclusive online tradeshow for mechanical engineers and designers, announced new technological enhancements to the upcoming show today. When visitors arrive at the show’s virtual booths they will now be able to either chat or talk directly to booth representatives. The technology works through firewalls, is extremely reliable, and is OS independent. All that’s needed is a microphone and speakers.
The VirtualMCAD show, slated to begin October 14, allows visitors to experience all the benefits of a physical trade show from the comfort of their desk, wherever they are. Companies will greet and speak with booth visitors, handout literature, show presentations, deliver software, and even give visitors their business cards.
Exhibitors use an intuitive admin console to completely manage and configure their booths. They are able to configure the booth's color scheme and messages, include multimedia, deliver their business cards and more. A comprehensive visitor reporting and tracking system is built into each exhibitor's console that replaces the card-swipe system used at physical shows.
The October VirtualMCAD 2003 show follows on the heals of last year's very previous successful VirtualMCAD 2002 shows, and is timed to allow companies who have prepared material for physical trade shows to get double use from it. David Heller, IBSystems President said, “Companies spend thousands of dollars preparing material for physical shows that now draw a limited audience. Our virtual online shows give companies a cost effective way to recycle their material to maximize its value to a large and targeted audience. It just makes sense.”
The interactive VirtualMCAD 2003 will be live and staffed from Tuesday, October 14, 2003 through Thursday, October 26, 2003. After that, it will be available on demand (unstaffed) through the end of this year. An early-bird registration form and demonstration booth can be test driven now at www.virtualmcad.com .
