"Moving the EXPO from an in-person experience to a virtual platform was the last choice we wanted to make.” says Adam VanDyk, president of the Great Lakes EXPO. “We recognize that a significant advantage of the EXPO is the networking with friends and business associates. The EXPO board is working to bring as much of the in-person feel we are used to onto a virtual platform.”
Stay tuned for more details in the coming months as the education program is released, as well as exciting features that are possible through the virtual platform.
