WE360 CONNECT is an innovative alternative to traditional trade show models, with the first installation taking place virtually on April 28 + 29, 2021. The brand new platform is both B2B and B2C and is curated to create conscious capitalism in an inspiring way, uniquely designed to deliver experiential wellness and environmental responsibility through a virtual and live ecosystem. The show will bring together authentic brands with selective buyers and qualified influencers, to engage in real-time and build relationships. Building the WE360 community will facilitate the expansion of healthy choices everywhere by helping the doers and drivers of socially and sustainably responsible businesses expand into new markets. The platform was built to engage new consumers and customers as well, to connect with others who will teach, translate and transmit their stories about doing well by doing good. The proprietary software designed for the trade show was created to fulfill a growing need WE360 founders saw to bring brands and buyers together outside of traditional settings.
We are 90 days away from previewing special content across multiple social media channels on Earth Day 2021 in advance of the show at the end of April. Complimentary registration is available to both buyers and consumers by visiting https://www.we360connect.com/. Exhibitors can also apply online or can submit a request for more information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The WE360 team is made up of an array of extraordinary talent from the worlds of music, non-profit, massive-scale event production, and the natural and holistic products space. With decades of experience as disruptors, risk-takers, trend makers, science followers, storytellers, and challengers of the status quo, they’ve merged their collective wisdom to create a custom solution for modern times.
Co-founder Jason Winkler shares, “The WE360 virtual event platform was designed by our in-house team of developers with a focus on the user experience. We wanted to provide an alternative to the standard sims avatar trade show, traditional video conferencing platforms, and outdated, singularly focused marketplaces. The WE360 platform differentiates itself from other virtual events by honing key factors such curated content, discovery, smart mapping, user friendly navigation, 3D real life booth scans, video and messaging communication, B2B and B2C interactions, buyer and exhibitor pairing algorithms and in-depth B2B analytics.”
Co-Founder and Brand expert Tim Avila continues, “The founders of WE360 believe that alleviation of many of the unjust, toxic and stressful impacts from today’s world can be achieved by making one (or more) better choices each day. What, how and when we consume everyday products and services can make all the difference. Every single human should be afforded the dignity, opportunity, and ability to exercise their right to decide what they will allow into, on or around their body.”
Invited brands will be divided into the categories of NOURISH (food and beverage), FLOURISH (wellness), and LIVE (lifestyle). All registered participants will have access to trade show booths, brand and founder stories, as well as unique content presented throughout the day and available through The Well. Buyers and core wellness influencers will have the additional opportunity to set up one-on-one meetings with brands via the platform’s online scheduling tool, and can sample products through a virtual gifting suite.
