Are you ready for our Virtual Trade Fair?
Right now we are very busy preparing for our Virtual Trade Fair on Monday May 27th. The Trade Fair will operate between 11:00 and 13:30 pm.
What will happen?
Students will meet and greet guests at the booths they have been busy designing and conduct trading using virtual currency (‘tokens’) with virtual world guests. Clients and guests include other staff looking at the potential use of virtual worlds in education, business contacts and even some international attendess (think of the money they are saving on flights!!)
How are we preparing for the event?
Students and project members have participated in virtual world training sessions alongside Trade Fair guests, business mentors, Virtual Enterprise Australia staff and interested North Coast TAFE staff. Currently, students are busy creating booths for virtual trading. Our business faculty teachers, Deb Kelly & Marie Power are guiding the students with creation of marketing collateral for the booths, brochures for trading, developing presentations and much more.
We’re also busy promoting the event to ensure that we have plenty of virtual visitors to keep our student busy! Here are some images of our spaces and training.
