A virtual exhibitor hall will be available daily for 30 minutes before the first session (10:30-11:00), 20 minutes between the sessions (12:00-12:20), and 10 minutes after the second session (1:20-1:30).  This affords conference attendees a full 60 minutes each day to interact and network with exhibitors. When attendees visit the virtual exhibition hall, they can view all available exhibitors, either by scrolling or by performing a search. Once a specific booth is selected, attendees can request a text conversation or a video meeting with the exhibitor, view exhibitor handouts or videos, and connect with exhibitors, allowing both exhibitor and the attendee to download contact information (like exchanging business cards). A list of exhibitors will be available on the Missouri Immunization Coalition website at: https://moimmunize.org/mic-conference-2022/.
