Expochat was a Twitter-based conversation on topics related to the trade show industry. It took place Wednesdays at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time and tackled a single topic each week - a recurring pain point, innovative ideas, evolution of the industry, best practices, and what worked. Expochat was alternately moderated by industry thought leaders: Stephanie Selesnick (International Trade Information, Inc.), Elizabeth Johnson (glee Content Marketing), Marlys K. Arnold (ImageSpecialist), Bill McGlade (Victory Productions), Rich Vallaster (Personify) and Stephan Murtagh (The Exhibition Guy).
