On entering the event, visitors will land in the Lobby. From there, visitors can access The Exhibitors Hall, the Auditorium, and The Lounge, as well as The Information Desk

The Information Desk

Clearly visible in the Lobby, visitors and exhibitors can access the Information Desk at any time to request replies to any questions that may arise during the event. The Information Desk is staffed by both the event platform team for technical issues and the VegfestUK team for any other areas.

The Exhibitors Hall

Open throughout the show, the Exhibitors Hall will house the stallholders, their brands, products services and information. Visitors can browse the individual stalls and then ‘visit’ a stall to access products and services information as well as shop, and chat directly to stallholders via live message and video function. The Live features (Shop, Video, Live message function)stay open for the duration of the event until 11pm Sunday Augsut 16th, the other features of the stall remain accessible for a further month (access to product information, contact details)

The Auditorium

Will house both the Livestreams and the Presentations. The Livestreams will be running consecutively and will commence at a pre arranged time, using a Zoom format, and lasting between one hour and one hour thirty. They will be streamed live, and be available to watch again a few hours later. The Presentations are pre recorded, hosted in featured areas and available to watch at any time. The Presentations will generally be shorter, between 10 minutes and half an hour (they may be shorter or longer). The Speakers may well advertise their presence at a pre arranged time in the Lounge for a live chat room facility to answer questions from visitors. The Auditorium stays open for 30 days after the event closes to enable visitors to revisit and rewatch talks, presentations and performances

Chat Rooms

Visitors will find the featured chat rooms in the Lounge, where they can meet like minded people and discuss the talks, exhibitors, speakers and other aspects. The Chat rooms will generally be hosted by some of the speakers and experts in the featured area, and individual speakers will be advertising their presence at specific times to enable visitors to come and chat if they wish. The Lounge is only open until the close of the event on Sunday 16th August
