As the CoronaVirus stays looming everywhere we go,  and no viable vaccine confirmed, lifestyles are forced into changing for better or for worse. This is no different for the ISSA. The ISSA has announced that they will be having a virtual experience rather than the annual trade show as to not risk the health of convention goers. 

But what does this mean for those who were looking forward to the convention? Well, have no fear. Even though the virtual experience is not exactly the same as a physical experience, there will be a lot to gain from joining in on the virtual version of the convention. 

For instance, there will be:

  •  Online exhibits showing industry-leading companies and their new products and innovations that you can use for your own business
  • A virtual product showcase that will allow you to keep up with the growing industry and its technology.  
  • A strong conference program that will allow the facilitation of the brightest and most forward thinking minds in the industry to share their experience and knowledge.
  • Virtual networking opportunities that will allow you to connect with colleagues across the country through live-chats and webinars. 

If you register online you can receive some great value for free! If you only wish to experience the Expo, you can do so for no charge at all! Choosing this method, you’ll gain access to the show floor and the show floor education! Essentially, with the free expo access, you get everything that would normally be on the show floor. 

But what if you want to get the most out of your ISSA Virtual Experience? Well, there is a plan for you.
