The first entirely online conference for the meetings industry, Expo Tech Expo will showcase technology solutions for both online and “terrestrial” events. The event is the brainchild of New York City — based online exhibition industry resource Trade Show News Network (, which recently acquired Trade Show Central, in collaboration with Expocentric, a London — based virtual conferencing company.

“Part of the mission is to look at where the Internet is going,” says TSNN president David Larkin. “I'm not waiting around for everything to be perfect. We're going to go for it.”
