UBM Studios Creates Virtual Event Directory

Press Release: UBM Studios Creates Revolutionary Virtual Event Directory Listing, Proprietary Technology Becomes the Virtual Event Center

Launched First with the ACS Virtual Conference & Career Fair

Chicago, IL – UBM Studios, a leader in virtual events and virtual business solutions, today announced its new proprietary virtual event Directory Listing.  The Directory Listing becomes the center for all virtual events, allowing event visitors’ easier access to exhibitors, sponsors and key information.

Key features of the Directory Listing include:

  • Scales to any size event;
  • Offers event producers a new Directory Listing option;
  • Look and feel of the directory can be changed for each event;
  • Filters by category, exhibitors, sponsors, alphabetical, etc.;
  • Attendees can roll over each company name or logo to get detailed information; and
  • Attendees can click on logo or company name to navigate directly to a booth.

“Prior to the Directory Listing, large virtual events would have more than one event center because each event floor is only able to support a small number of exhibitors.  With our proprietary technology the Directory Listing becomes the event center allowing visitors easier access to the companies and the information they are interested in gathering at events and also provides exhibitors and sponsors with additional exposure since they may be listed in more than one category,” said Michael O’Sullivan, Creative Director, UBM Studios.  “As we continue to create industry leading events we will continue to evolve our platform to offer our clients and event attendees with the best virtual experience possible.”

The directory listing was first launched with ACS Virtual Conference & Career Fair, targeted to the chemical industry, which takes place November 2-3, 2010.  The event is produced by The American Chemical Society (ACS), the world’s largest scientific society, Informex, the leading meeting place for buyers and sellers of high-value chemistry and Chemical & Engineering News, the ACS’ flagship publication.
