What size virtual booth is recommended?
If an exhibitor has a medium or large booth in a physical expo, it is recommended to get the same size in a virtual booth. However, if an exhibitor has a small booth in a physical expo, a bigger booth would benefit them. A larger virtual booth allows for a bigger footprint year-round.
