Specification company Specifi has revealed plans for Sp Virtual Next, a digital event for the foodservice equipment industry.
The event will be held on 30 September with industry-leading speakers, real-time networking and a virtual exhibition and marketplace where products and projects can be shown in virtual reality.
Attendees will be able to network, ask questions directly to speakers, explore pods in the exhibition, browse products and interact real-time with exhibitors.
Exhibitors can showcase products in detail, chat with prospective customers and track leads.
Manufacturers already signed up to the Specifi Studio platinum partnership programme can make use of a virtual 3D stand with up to 10 pieces of equipment and as many as three product videos. The Pods will allow attendees to move around the space, interacting with equipment to see product codes, dimensions, service requirements and promotional videos.
Static Pods are available to all manufacturers, dealers, designers, consultants and any other interested party. The Static Pod allows up to five products or projects along with PDF spec sheets and videos. There will also be a chatroom, a calendar to allow attendees to make an appointment for up to 30 days after the event, a 'contact us' facility and the opportunity to add a company video and biography.
Specifi's VP sales for UK and Ireland, Nic Banner, who will lead the exhibition, commented: "We currently have availability for up to 100 Pods, 20 of which will be a 3D experience and the remainder as static Pods.
"One of the big advantages of hosting an online exhibition is that it is not just for the day. We will be making this exhibition available to exhibitors and attendees for a period of 30 days after the event."
