vFairs aims to transform the events industry and change how people come together and exchange ideas on topics of interest.

It does this by empowering organizations to move away from expensive, limiting & tedious physical events and host hassle-free online event experiences instead. Virtual events prove to be far more cost-effective, scalable, productive, and measurable. Most of all, they remove the need for people to be at a specific physical location making it very convenient.

vFairs has helped top organizations like Nestle, 3M, Unilever, UMUC, and American Airlines host amazing Virtual Career Fairs, Online Trade Shows, Virtual Open Days & more. The vFairs platform is leading the way in breaking barriers in the events industry.

Interested in changing how the world hosts events? Let’s do it together at vFairs.
