Islandia, New York — The Festo Experience – Automation for Tomorrow is an online North American trade show to be held 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. EDT on August 5 and 6. Designed to approximate the experience of attending a major trade fair in terms of the large number and range of products on display, this event also includes live technical sessions, networking opportunities, and technical personnel available to discuss solutions for upcoming projects. Many Festo employees – five times the usual number assigned to a major trade show – will be on hand to chat with attendees in both English and Spanish.
“We are thrilled to host the first North American virtual trade show where our customers can fully immerse themselves in the online Festo experience,” said Kristine Inserra, Director of Marketing Communications for Festo North America. “Though we enjoy connecting in person, we’re excited by the opportunity to bring everyone together online. Trade shows foster an environment where we can showcase products, engage in fruitful discussions about upcoming projects, and educate through technical sessions. We’ve done our utmost to emulate the same atmosphere attendees would find at any top international trade show and hope our customers enjoy the experience.”
Registration is free. On the days of the event, an attendee will login and then see the Festo Experience trade show lobby. The lobby features an information desk, entrances to the exhibit halls, the auditorium for live and on-demand presentations, and a networking lounge. No special software is required. Chrome or Firefox browsers are recommended. Communication is via chat-based dialogue.
Themed booths feature product displays, on-demand video, literature, and the opportunity for chat, either publicly or privately, with booth staff.
