First Virtual Pop Expo Powered By Auxxit
Auxxit was proud to be a part of this first-of-its-kind virtual exposition for the fandom community, helping bring fans, talent, and merchants together in a fully integrated event.
With the impact of Covid-19 keeping us from coming together at physical locations, it was awesome to be able to use our tech as a new safe and engaging format to help so many people!
“Virtual Pop Expo” was one of several projects working to re-create in-person events online. It took place last weekend with all the components of a pop culture convention: cosplay contests, industry panels, celebrity appearances, and a virtual marketplace with more than 120 pop culture merchandisers.
Those merchants set up shop on Auxxit’s platform and almost 1,500 people were on the app during the weekend event that kicked off with a preview night at 6 PM PT on Friday, May 8th.
The event which ran through Sunday, May 10th featured live streams both in the merchant rooms and in the main lobby.
Everyone involved worked tirelessly on an impossibly short 5-week timeframe to pull this off and the entire Auxxit team met the challenge head-on!
