The networking feature allows virtual conference attendees to create profiles (detailing facts like their work history and areas of expertise), and then recommends the profiles of other attendees based on similar business interests. Unisfair has also bundled admission collection tools into the platform, allowing events organizers to charge overall conference fees, as well as admission fees for specific keynotes or panels. Meanwhile, Virtual Events for Business 2.0 now supports presentations, general chat and private messages in 15 languages, including French, Spanish, Turkish and Korean.
The updated platform has been upgraded to support third-party add-ons for Webcasts and sales automation tools (from companies like Salesforce.com), in addition to now offering a spate of new designs for virtual booths and booth representatives.
Menlo Park, Calif.-based Unisfair has powered virtual conferences and expos for companies including Nielsen, IBM and Rogers Publishing.
