In a bit of a twist, rather than coming to Eastern Energy Expo, Eastern Energy Expo will come to you. Eastern Energy Expo announced that the 2020 Expo will be held in an “On Demand Venue.” By bringing the Expo directly to participants using a dynamic web platform, EEE will continue to serve the energy and comfort industries—this year through a 100% online experience during the entire month of August.
While attending the On Demand Expo, visitors will be able to tour the exhibits, watch the business sessions, see new products and interact with vendors.
Through their On Demand exhibit, exhibitors can display products, services, videos, show specials, news, contact and social media links.
Eric DeGesero, executive vice president, Fuel Merchants Association of New Jersey, representing Eastern Energy Expo said, “Of course, we were all eager to be at the new Mohegan Sun Convention Center. However, the reality of COVID-19 has impacted the way we all work and travel. Over the last few weeks, it has become evident that regardless of what the status of reopening in our region is by August, the in person experience would not only raise legitimate safety concerns, but also inhibit our ability to facilitate the face-to-face results that we all want from a trade show.”
Lisa Strung, executive director, Oil & Energy Service Professionals, commented, “While we know we cannot replace the face-to-face networking of an in-person show, the partners to the show are working hard to assure this year’s event will provide all participants, attendees, exhibitors and sponsors a new way to interact in this virtual format. Going “On Demand” will enable us to bring the show to attendees for a month-long experience where they can take advantage of the opportunity to participate at their convenience. OESP is excited to continue to bring quality educational programs to you.
Ted Harris, executive vice president, Pennsylvania Petroleum Association noted, “Going virtual affords us the opportunity to expand the demographic reach of the show. Location is not a barrier to participation and attendee registration is free to all. With the cancellation of so many events, we are pleased to offer exhibitors, sponsors and attendees the opportunity to connect and maintain visibility during this challenging time.”
