Exhibit Hall

We know that the Exhibit Hall is an important part of every Focus Conference. This year won’t be any different! Our virtual exhibit hall experience will offer Focus Conference attendees the ability to browse new products, setup one-on-one meetings with exhibitors, sign up for their raffle giveaway items, chat with exhibitors, and connect with others about exhibitors. All attendees will also receive a sample box of items from Focus Conference sponsors before the event, so make sure to watch your doorstep for the package!

On-Demand Sessions

Our on-demand sessions give you the opportunity to choose what courses you want to take on your own schedule between Jan. 29 and Feb. 28, 2021. If you weren’t able to make the live sessions, these will be recorded and available for you on-demand. Once the live sessions are over, Focus attendees will have these courses available to them in the online conference portal.
