2021’s online Bearing Expo & B2B Meetings event, which took place on 15-18 March, hosted 1,057 guests from all around the world, covered multiple time-zones, and set a precedent for future shows. The new revolutionary format was widely embraced by the global bearing community and retained an impressive 73% of registered guests. The large turnout was coupled by a remarkably high amount of user interaction across a variety of features.
Participants were free to come and go at their convenience, but on average spent a total of 569 minutes on the platform at any given time. With access to video and chat functionality, attendees participated in over 653 video meetings and shared over 5,014 messages. A hefty majority of time was also spent participating in the B2B networking section of the event, along with the main expo area where attendees explored exhibitor booths. Furthermore, significant interaction took place at the stage section of the event where expert speakers provided unique industry insights and answered questions during Q&A sessions.
Bearing Expo 2021’s success in the new virtual space was groundbreaking and directly correlated to the significant amount of preparation from the exhibitors, conference speakers and organizers that went into the show’s development.
Moving forward steps are being taken to make future shows even more efficient through added system functionalities. While there have been no official schedule announcements, the new additions, alterations, and improvements will be on full display in the latter half of 2021.
