What you get at Oi Connect

Oi Connect is an all-in-one platform that lets you showcase your products and services, schedule business meetings, and conduct video calls. Find some of the top features below:

A full feature digital booth

New for Oi Connect 2021, we are able to offer 3D customized stands at no additional cost. There are three templates to choose from – you simply drag and drop your branding into the appropriate area. As part of your stand package you can also add downloadable brochures, product images and descriptions. We offer all exhibitors a full guide on how to easily build a 3D digital stand.  

Schedule Meetings

The Oi Connect platform uses powerful technology to get you the best possible matches and find the right person easily. You have the power to send meeting invites, plus of course you can receive meeting requests from visitors. All exhibitors can manage their own diary to ensure you maximise your time.

In Platform Video calls

The Oi Connect platform is your view on the world of ocean tech buyers. Using your webcam, you can see and talk to attendees all within the platform, no need to download yet another app, it’s all there for you to take advantage of on the platform. You can also share presentations, send chat messages and leave your business card at the end of the call.

Drop-In meetings

We all know that attendees like to browse the aisles at live events, and when something catches their eye they will happily drop onto your stand for an informal chat. Oi Connect allows this to continue in the digital world with Live Chat and Drop-In Meetings. Simply have your team standing by to greet any potential customers and start the conversation.

NEW for 2021: Video Product Showcase

Showcase your products in the form of a pre-recorded video as part of this year’s content program. These will be available to view On-Demand across 4 days of Oi Connect, and all the way through to May 25, so your video is always prominent. Our post-event survey showed that 83% of our visitors want to see more product-focused content, whether that’s product demonstrations, launches, webinars or even training. And it goes without saying, when attendees see your video, they’ll be more interested to meet with you.
