Participants will be able to chat with exhibitors and move from one exhibitor’s stream to the next, much like booth-hopping at a physical vendor mall!
Once you are registered and logged in, click on “Exhibitor Mall” at the top of the page. To access an exhibitor’s livestream, simply click on the livestream link posted on each exhibitor’s profile page. Many of the exhibitors are also offering special sales and promotions on their profile pages.
You are also welcome to browse the exhibitor profiles at wigardenexpo.com/exhibitor-mall/ and shop anytime!
