The Infosecurity show and exhibition has gone virtual with the launch of the first Infosecurity World Online exhibition. But where are the sweets?
The Infosecurity show and exhibition has gone virtual with the launch of the first Infosecurity World Online exhibition.
Following registration on the website, the visitor is welcomed into a very peaceful-looking virtual convention centre with a scattering of smartly dressed delegates (no shorts-and-t-shirt-wearing throng at this show).
The site includes virtual exhibition stands, a virtual newsroom (containing case studies, white papers and news), and a virtual seminar room where flash presentations or keynote speeches can be played. Trend Micro, Clearswift, Sophos, Compaq, Pentasafe and Computer Weekly are amongst those currently 'exhibiting' at the show. Their stands enable visitors to gather details about products and services, adding the relevant information to a virtual exhibition bag, the contents of which will be forwarded by email. Requests may be left for the exhibitor to contact the visitor in person, and press releases and links to the exhibitors' websites are provided - in fact pretty much everything you would get at a 'live' exhibition.
VB notes one glaring omission though: what about the free coffee, sweets and merchandising goodies?
