VIRTUAL Fall Training School Trade Show
September 22-24, 2020

NYCOM will be running its Fall Training School through the virtual platform Whova. This conference platform can be accessed with a mobile or desktop app and offers exhibitors the opportunity to make connections, show videos, showcase written materials, invite attendees to meetings or set up one on one meetings. In addition, you will receive a special link so that you can “set-up” and customize your booth space or profile.

    HIDE & SEEK
    To encourage traffic in the exhibit area, NYCOM will be offering multiple gift card drawings for attendees who search through the exhibit hall looking for “hidden” words.
