blooloop V-Expo sets the standard for online events in the attractions industry

The blooloop V-Expo took place last week. Held 13-15th Oct. and hosted by our friends at Merlin Entertainments, over 4,500 attended our first virtual conference and exhibition

Delegates watched presentations and took part in discussions with leaders from across the sector. Over 50 of the industry’s most innovative companies joined us with online booths and webinars.

Best Booth Engagement

We are all just learning about online events, but of course content is key. Storyland Studios rocked in terms of engagement at the V-Expo, delivering popular webinars such as “Creating Storytellers” and “Masterplanning a Theme Park”.

Check out the Exhibition Hall for more creative designs and interesting content from our exhibitors.
