Arlington Heights, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/14 -- More than 1,600 storm water and erosion control professionals registered for the 3rd Annual Storm Water Solutions Virtual Expo, hosted live online on April 2 by Scranton Gillette Communications' Storm Water Solutions magazine, StormwaterONE, and the International Erosion Control Association. A record 900 unique visitors toured exhibitor booths and tuned in from the comfort of their offices to hear two keynote presentations and participate in a moderated chat session.
Virtual expo exhibits offered live interaction between attendees and exhibitors. In a post-expo attendees survey, respondents noted the ease of visiting vendors and downloading product information, and appreciated that the expo was free, required no travel expenses, and allowed attendees to come and go at their convenience.
Attendees who viewed on-demand webinars earned Professional Development Hours and commented on the quality of the speakers and topics. Asked to rate the Expo's value, 85.6% ranked it good to excellent.
In a similar survey of exhibitors, 100% of the respondents rated the value of the Virtual Expo as good to excellent, and listed maintaining company image and exposure as their reason for participation; 75% said it helped generate leads.
"The Virtual Expo continues to grow and provide important education and networking for the storm water and erosion control industries," says SGC/SGC Horizon Vice President of Events Harry Urban. "This was our largest audience and group of exhibitors, truly demonstrating the vitality of the market."
