for 20×20 booths and larger. Event industry professionals will receive complimentary registration and are encouraged to participate in any capacity. Says Nicole Unger, VP of sales at Alliance Nationwide Exposition, “Attendees at Together Again will be the first to meet in the industry in a very new and different environment. We expect to bring over 300 exhibitors and 5,000 attendees to experience their first live event in a post quarantine environment. Ten days after the launch, we have already signed up over 120 exhibitors, and over 1,000 attendees. Together Again Expo will essentially be a live demo where attendees and exhibitors will be the cast, and they will experience for themselves multiple new safety tools and practices including temperature monitoring, touchless registration, social distancing, as well as new F&B and sanitation practices throughout the entire facility and event. These tools will allow the attendee to implement these safety strategies into their own events."

She continues, "We also have many sponsors and exhibitors who have taken this 'down time' to lead the way for the industry to successfully hold live events moving forward. We will feature product showcases on the main stage from our Premier Sponsors—Sunbelt Rentals, United Service Companies and CORT Events—who will all showcase innovative health and safety products and services." They will be featuring a Live Opening General Session on Safety Protocols to include senior officials from the OCCC, Visit Orlando, Orlando International Airport, GBAC, IAPPA, Orlando Health and AAU, to discuss how conventions will be able to be held safely and responsibly. They will also feature a virtual panel with industry organizations (as of press time) to include IAEE, PCMA, ASAE, SISO, ESCA, CEIR, EIC and IAVM on the future of the event industry in the new normal with COVID-19. Both of these sessions will be led and facilitated by Carrie Ferenac of CNTV. The Together Again Expo will be

produced and live streamed by Technisch Creative. In addition to the production for the live event, Technisch Creative will give virtual attendees an opportunity to experience the event from start to finish, remotely. Attendees at home will be able to view and participate in all live and virtual presentations, and they will also explore the expo with personal exhibitor interviews, entertainment, and video highlights from select exhibitors and sponsors. "Our goal is to provide fast moving, engaging content that demonstrates the future of events," says Unger. Meeting and event professionals and suppliers can register at www.together againexpo.com.
