Visuals of people that show a full conference? This refers to having 3d model people all around the exhibition/conference hall. i.e. like how each booth is manned by a 3d model person

HexaFair: Static based Avatars, we can keep in many places. However, this may definitely increase the loading time of the application at least by a minute. You need to consider the user experience. We had it earlier in the system. Due to memory & high internet connectivity required, this may take 2 minutes for loading the complete applications, the end users are losing patience, leave from the application immediately. We carefully considered & removed it. Probably, in the auditorium, we can have avatars filled up. So that it does not look empty. But, in the exhibition hall, we don’t recommend. If you still want it, we can get it done for you.

Tried out the Android & iPhone app and it looks great. Quick check on use on mobile, is it possible to do it web-based rather than app-based?

HexaFair: As an organiser, it is your decision whether you want to go with only Web based or Web and Mobile app based. But, we highly recommend you to go with Mobile app as well. Feature wise, there is no difference. But, mobile, users will have far better experience and convenience. They don’t need to log in sitting in front of their computer
