The Expo hall at the 2020 AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo, which opens on December 14 at 7 a.m. U.S. Central Time, might be in a different format than usual but it offers no less opportunities for attendees to explore the best and brightest innovations of the in vitro diagnostics industry and find solutions for their operational needs.

More than 170 exhibitors will be on hand via the AACC virtual meeting platform to confer personally with attendees, offer product links, downloads, and demos, and give insightful workshops and lectures.

This year’s all virtual format enables attendees to use their time efficiently from the comfort of their homes or offices, accessing detailed information and making substantive connections with just a few clicks. Attendees also can gather information in advance and have more focused exchanges with exhibitors.

The engine of this efficiency is the intelligent matchmaking embedded in the virtual meeting platform. When attendees consent to participate the system recommends companies and other attendees of interest. Though it’s not required, when attendees update their profiles to reflect their professional interests and categories the system will refine selected recommendations.

Based on their profiles, attendees and exhibitors see recommended contacts and can express interest in connecting. Mutual interest becomes contacts with permission from the participants, and lists can be exported for later use. Interested parties also can arrange video meetings without having to download or access separate software.

Attendees can schedule meetings with exhibitors, drop off a virtual business card, or live chat each day with exhibitors Monday, Dec. 14 through Thursday, Dec. 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Central Time. Attendees can show their availability via the virtual meeting platform to make scheduling simple and stress-free. The Clinical Lab Expo Hall formally opens on Monday, December 14th at 7 a.m. U.S. Central Time.

The 2020AACC virtual meeting platform offers convenient and easy connections, with flexible contact options to suit attendees’ preferences. An added benefit is that by simply connecting and engaging attendees could receive $100 Amazon gift cards. Three will be awarded each day and announced in CLN Daily, the official publication of the 2020 AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo.
