Decide on how you want to use the Virtual Meeting software, for instance, to meet with a single person, schedule meetings at specific times, host a group meeting etc. Set up your meeting using the software and provide us with the meeting link and access. We will build the links into your Online Marketplace Exhibitor listing.
