Introduction

Jim Reilly (@oldantler), author of the Positively Virtual blog, commented in a recent posting that “we need to at least offer a option to get us away from a ‘literal’ view of an exhibition hall, conference centre, networking lounge and so on.

I Agree

Jim’s plea was music to my ears. In fact, it’s precisely what we’ve done with INXPO VX Platform– we’ve moved content and brands center stage and de-emphasized the physical event metaphors that used to surround them.

My Guest Post on Positively Virtual

Jim allowed me to elaborate in a guest post on Positively Virtual. In the post, I cover ways in which navigation and content discovery can be made easier for attendees:

  1. “You had me at hello.”
  2. List featured content right away.
  3. Minimize clicks.
  4. Provide automated recommendations.
