Most of us are social creatures who thrive on face-to-face contact with our colleagues and friends, and over the last year, many of us have had to learn new ways of benefiting from that social interaction. The human connection is one of the most enjoyable parts of any trade show - connecting with old clients and colleagues, meeting new companies, and keeping up to date with new developments and technologies, so it's interesting to see how the industry is getting around the restrictions imposed by Covid. We're all used to having our client and colleague meetings via Zoom or Slack- it has become the norm - but organising a 3-day trade show virtually takes things to a whole new level!
Spatex organisers have arranged a fully interactive online exhibition. There is live chat with all exhibitors and the opportunity to engage in group discussions. And there's the usual workshop programme spanning 3 days with a full line up of experts. Tom Devin will be presenting on the first day of the show which runs 2-4 February. Registration is free and lots of information is available on the Spatex website.
