FAQ

How will MAAM be hosting Building Museums™? MAAM will be using a platform called Hopin to host the 2021 Building Museums™ Symposium. Hopin will have a stage, areas for roundtable discussion, speed networking, and an exhibitor area. To learn more about Hopin’s features, view their video on the attendee experience at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRBVbUCNTTg.

What will virtual sponsorship look like? Things will look a little different this year! We’re offering more opportunities to connect with attendees through roundtable discussions, video segments, links to your marketing materials and whitepapers, and a space to meet with attendees virtually. Some of the higher levels include a chance to sponsor webinar content with MAAM throughout 2021.

What does the virtual exhibit area look like on Hopin? Check out a brief, 3 minute demo of the Hopin exhibitor area here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqhAM9c7jnE
