The third Virtual Insurance Marketplace (VIM) is taking place tomorrow, May 29th and Thursday, May 30th, combining the latest technology in webcasting, online chats, video streaming, and avatar graphics to offer the components of a physical trade show. Free to California agents, brokers, and insurance professionals, VIM is designed to look and function like a real tradeshow but plays out in real time in cyberspace. There will be exhibitor booths, presentations, distribution of marketing literature and social "gatherings."
VIM is hosted by Direct Connection Advertising & Marketing LLC, which provides marketing and communication solutions to insurance carriers, wholesalers and the industry at large.
"With the virtual tradeshow, you don't have the expense of travel, accommodations, meals, etc. that are part of attending a show," said Anita Nevins, fouder of Direct Connection Advertising & Marketing LLC. "We're bringing the benefits of a tradeshow to a wider audience, providing attendees with the ability to click on an exhibitor's booth to download company information, watch product-demonstration videos and chat online with company reps from the comfort of their office."
The Virtual Insurance Marketplace is not intended to replace the industry tradeshows that take place throughout the country year-round; rather they can be used to complement an existing show by offering an opportunity to those that can't attend either as a participant or as an exhibitor to connect and network with colleagues, find out about products and services, learn from industry experts, and connect with markets. The virtual tradeshow also offers an opportunity for companies and associations to create a new show for those looking for different avenues to reach their constituents.
