Your Digital Lounge Sponsor Booth

During the Digital ISE® Executive Forum & Awards Program, T.E.N. will host an unobstructed, concurrently-running ISE® Digital Lounge where executives can visit virtual booths for sponsors, read banners of information, visit links, enter a Zoom session hosted by the sponsor for deeper conversations and more. The ISE® Digital Lounge runs from 1:00pm to 5:30pm local time via GoExhibit, a digital event space with realistic sponsor booths customized for each individual sponsor. GoExhibit’s capabilities allows the T.E.N. team to keep track of which executives visit your booth to help your team understand who you encountered during the event.

As part of your sponsorship you will be able to provide the imagery, text, and links to customize your ISE® Digital Booth. Your booth has three banners, one welcome podium, two text panels, and two link panels for customizing. GoExhibit will work with T.E.N. to tailor your booth to these provided materials to provide the best experience for your team and visiting executives.

Please provide the following information no later than Wednesday, September 18th by 5pm ET.

URL Recommendations

We recommend three options for your two URLs:
- Zoom Session: Sponsor-hosted Zoom session where you may invite executives to join your team and chat. Video chat is welcome, as is using your session’s Chat window to send private chats to specific executives in your session. This is a benefit included in your sponsorship, and as such it is strongly recommended you utilize this option for one of your links. Please see the next page about details for this session.
- Website Homepage: A link to your company’s website so visiting executives can click through to your website.
- A Downloads Page: A sponsor-hosted downloads page where executives can view digital brochures, white papers, research, and other materials to help an executive learn more about your company and share the information with their team.

Sponsor-Hosted Zoom Session

Your sponsorship includes the option to host a Zoom session as one of your URLs for your booth. This is a Zoom session launched and hosted by your team, wherein your team can further engage with executives at the event who seek more in depth discussion with your team.

This Zoom session would be open for the duration of the ISE® Digital Lounge from 1:00 to 5:30pm local time. However, should you choose to continue conversations with executives currently in your session at the conclusion of the ISE® Digital Lounge, your session may stay open after the event for as long as you like—however, access for new attendees via the ISE® Digital Lounge Booth would be closed.

T.E.N. can provide a Zoom session in your stead if necessary, but with limitations—a T.E.N. Zoom session will only be open from the 1:00 to 5:30pm local time window. At the conclusion of the ISE® Digital Lounge, this session would be emptied and closed. Further conversations with any remaining executives in the session would not be possible. Only team members delegated in your deliverables as representatives in the ISE® Digital Lounge will be permitted to engage with executives in these Zoom sessions.

Sponsor-Hosted Zoom Session Deliverables

Should you choose to provide a Zoom Session for one of your ISE® Digital Lounge Booth URLs, please provide the following information by Friday, September 18th by 5pm ET.
- Zoom Session URL
- Zoom Session Password

Zoom Sessions during the event should disable the waiting room feature.

Business Intelligence

We are thrilled to have you on board as a sponsor! In order for us to fulfill the business intelligence aspect of your sponsorship contract, we would appreciate your response to the survey link below. I realize some of you may have done this previously for other regions—we have slightly altered the survey in an effort to better match sales leads so it is important that you do it one more time! This will enable us to provide you with the most relevant intelligence in order to make your investment worthwhile. Please have this survey completed by September 25, 2020.
