A Message From The Organizers

Proud Supporters of V3DMC 2020

Hybrid Exhibition

This year we will offer a hybrid exhibition with stands at the live event and virtual stands accessible on our website.

Exhibitors who sign up for a stand at the live event will have one delegate pass and one virtual stand included in the cost. In addition, an exhibitor’s code will be provided which can be used to discount delegate passes and the cost of the live stand itself. At a lower cost, exhibitors can sign up for a virtual stand only. Once signups are complete and online material is ready, the virtual stands will go live on the website and remain live until the end of the year.

For an exemplary virtual stand, visit WZL's V3DMC page.
