Frequently Asked Questions

What is included with a NOMS virtual booth?

Exhibitor booths will look and feel like a website landing page and will include PDAC and NOMS branding along with your company/organization information, images, logo and web links.

  • A virtual (2D) exhibit booth for all four days of the convention.
  • You can customize your virtual booth with your company logo, description, contact information and social media handles. Also includes up to five website links.
  • You can upload up to ten documents including flyers, brochures, maps, investor materials, photos and more.
  • Ability to upload up to four promotional videos for attendees to view when they enter your virtual booth.
  • Live text chat with attendees and other exhibitors.
  • Access to the PDAC help desk to assist with any questions or concerns you may have.

Will I be responsible for creating my virtual booth?

As with the traditional in person NOMS event, it is our intent to maintain consistency. To help achieve this, our coordinator will contact you to acquire content which we will then use to create your booth, thus limiting the staff time required on your end. Each booth will include:

  • Your logo
  • Image (we will reformat your poster from last year)
  • Company description (this information will also be used in the 2021 directory for download)
  • Link to your website
  • Links to your social media accounts
  • Chat function
  • Link to video (if you have one)

Will I be able to customize my booth?

While we are requiring that NOMS exhibitors maintain consistency in terms of layout and branding, you will be able to add additional documents and links once we have created your basic booth as per question 2 above. You will be provided access to the platform before the show opens, providing ample time to customize your virtual booth and set up meetings.

Are we required to have a company representative online throughout the show to respond to inquiries?

No, you are not required to sit by your computer. Attendees can book meetings with you and your staff or send text messages to your inboxes at any time. You can schedule your hours each day to show when you are available for meetings.

Business interests and buyers will be able to book 1-on-1 meetings with your booth representatives during the hours you have preselected. There will be space in your booth to add in your own external video conferencing invitation link. (e.g. Zoom, Teams, etc.)

How will attendees find me?

The PDAC virtual platform includes a sophisticated matchmaking algorithm that will encourage attendees to visit your booth based on their interests. They will also be able to search alphabetically or based on products and services they are seeking.

How will the virtual trade show be promoted to attendees to encourage them to visit the booths?

PDAC will promote the exhibit hall after select presentations and will allocate specific times in the agenda for attendees to visit with exhibitors. Additionally, push notifications will be sent to remind attendees to visit exhibit booths throughout the show dates and crosscut emails will be sent to all attendees to introduce the exhibit hall.

NOMS will create posts to promote the trade show using social media and email campaigns. Sample posts will be provided to NOMS exhibitors to be shared with their networks.

Will our representatives be able to participate in other features of the PDAC virtual convention?

Your NOMS registration includes 4 PDAC virtual passes*. Unlike the in-person event, all booth representatives will have access to the entire virtual convention including presentations, networking events, matchmaking and more! Booth representatives will have full networking capabilities and the ability to contact attendees directly.

* You may purchase an additional 2 exhibitor staff passes at $125 CAD each at registration.

How will I know who has been to my booth?

Virtual booth analytics make it possible to track engagement on a level that is not possible in person. You will have the ability to see real time booth analytics for an in-depth look at who visited your booth and send follow-ups.

Exhibitors will have access to the following information on attendees that have opted in to sharing their information: name of attendee, email of attendee, date/time of first and last visit, total number of visits, date/time of downloaded item or product offers and total number of website clicks.

Will we be able to access the analytics and other show information after the event?

You will have access to the platform three months post show, extending the time for you to continue to capture leads and connect with attendees.
