Exhibits

VIRTUAL EXHIBIT BOOTH: US $950*

Sigma’s virtual exhibit hall provides the perfect platform to engage with attendees directly! Your virtual booth, displaying your name/logo, allows you to offer links to your product pages, brochures, social accounts, videos, and more!

You can also connect with attendees by booking a virtual booth visit at any time including scheduled exhibit hall hours.

Exhibitors will be recognized in pre-event promotions to more than 135,000 Sigma members and during the event via citations on the congress website, virtual platform, and mobile app.

What is a virtual exhibit hall?

Check out this preview of what a virtual exhibit hall looks like!

Your virtual booth will be just a click away to congress attendees via your logo featured on the virtual home page. And CommPartners, our virtual meeting partner, can design your booth for you or help you create just the right look and feel.

You can “furnish” your virtual booth with video, product brochures, link to social accounts, conduct live chats during dedicated hall hours, and book virtual visits.

Booth Traffic & Lead Generation

Exhibitors and sponsors will be featured on the congress virtual platform, website, and the mobile app.

Sigma will drive traffic to your virtual booth throughout the conference via notifications and plenary session announcements during dedicated viewing times.

We highly encourage you to include downloadable resources in your booth. These are a great way to know which attendees were interested in your organization. Attendees that download resources from your booth will be collected and shared post-event.
