    Virtual trade shows in times of Covid-19

    Are usual trade shows in times of Covid-19 no longer time up to date? And will they possibly go entirely out of fashion after the pandemic, so that more and more companies will focus on virtual events and virtual trade shows?

    What´s your opinion? Do you have experiences with virtual industrial events?

    In Düsseldorf, for example, the METAV Web sessions will take place in June where exhibitors are now presenting themselves and their portfolios. It was set up after the original fair in March had to be postponed. Do you know other virtual trade shows that were created this year because of Covid-19?

    Yes, I think it´s a great opportunity. You can use 360° videos or create a CGI based virtual reality. Although the production means a lot of effort and can be expensive at first, in the end it may be really cost effective: You can avoid to send a lot of staff to trade shows, book hotels, wasting time with the wrong visitors and so on.

    But I don´t think, that virtual events will replace physical trade shows entirely. The face to face contact will still be important, now and in 20, 50 or 100 years.

    true, trade shows will certainly not be replaced one hundred percent. You must also have the opportunity to see and try out a product/machine directly. This is virtually impossible.
