Using the Meeting Hub
The Meeting Hub allows you to connect and communicate with other attendees. Once you have located an attendee you want to connect with, click the Connect button. Once the other attendee accepts your request, you can choose to interact with your connection by starting a live chat or live video call. You can also schedule to meet at a future time, send messages and take notes. Contact information for all attendees you have connected will be included when you export your contacts (see the Exporting your Notes and Contacts for additional information).

Virtual Exhibition
You can visit the Virtual Exhibition at any time during the event by clicking on the View Directory button at the right of the timeline. When you are in the Products & Services Directory area, you can search and browse through the list of exhibitors. Clicking on the View Button lets you review the Exhibitor’s Information and download any available brochures. You can also choose to connect with members of the Exhibitor team via Meeting Hub. If the exhibition is open and the exhibitor’s staff is online, you can request a live meeting and you will be placed in a queue. You can always see your position in the queue and when you reach the top of the queue a video meeting with the selected member of the exhibitor’s team will begin.

Exporting your Notes and Contacts

In additional, all Meeting Hub connections you have make with other OnAIR participants will save their contact information, that you can export using the Export option as well.
