CICan is very excited to introduce our very first Virtual Marketplace! This interactive, engaging, online environment allows conference attendees to meet with booth staff face-to-face and learn about their products and services without anyone leaving the comfort of their home office!
Conference attendees will be able to explore booths with the click of their mouse. Exhibitors will be available to live chat about their latest products and services so attendees can take time to learn from the exhibiting companies and expand their network of contacts, all at their own pace.
Marketplace will be open daily during the conference between 11:00 and 17:00, with key Exploration Times as listed here. Booth staff will be on hand to meet with delegates.
To encourage attendees to visit our exhibitors, we will be implementing gamification in our virtual event. By clicking on the exhibitor’s store front, the attendee is assigned points. Accumulating points increases their chances of winning exciting prizes, including free registration for the 2022 CICan Connection Conference!
CICan is happy to welcome the following exhibitors to the 2021 Connection Conference:
