Cloud Conventions are virtual expos or trade shows managed entirely on the Convey platform technology. Unlike traditional trade shows, a Cloud Convention is easy and inexpensive to manage, can run for any length of time, can be attended 24 X 7 and requires no travel.
A Cloud Conventions site comes complete with a registration platform, ecommerce engine to take fees, virtual booths for exhibitors, calendars to display the agenda and session schedule, and virtual meeting rooms. A Cloud Convention can offer giveaways and promotions, highlight a keynote address, and hold vendor literature and videos.
Who holds a Cloud Convention?
Associations, companies, or trade show organizations can hold a Cloud Convention. These virtual expos are ideal before or after a live trade show to generate additional revenue and attract attendees that could not make the live event.
How does the Cloud Convention platform work?
A Cloud Convention platform has a home page that will be branded and customized with logos, banners, web pages, directories, an event calendar, and features. The platform is divided into online catalogs that become the virtual booths for exhibitors to customize, brand and add content, banners, videos, and giveaways. The platform has an ecommerce engine to take payment, a CRM to track exhibitors and registrants, and a reporting engine to track results.
How does a Cloud Convention generate revenue?
Cloud Conventions generate revenue much in the same way as a live trade show. The ecommerce engine can process attendee and exhibitor fees. Advertising can be sold on the site home page. Training and access to content can be sold by the convention organizer or exhibitor.
How much does a Cloud Convention platform cost?
Convey works with your organization to customize a strategy to either pay for the platform on a subscription basis or to take a percentage of convention revenue.
How does an organization manage a Cloud Convention?
Convey provides the initial set up and branding of a Cloud Convention site. Sites are easy to customize and manage by the organization or the entire platform management can be outsourced to Convey.
