A warm welcome to all that have chosen to participate in our inaugural virtual book fair. It was something like 38 days ago that we first dreamed up the idea for this fair. In that time we have created the site you see here. The exhibitor load-in process has been developed to allow all to enter (by the Book Uploader) and edit (under My Products) the products you have put in. You can also edit your submitted Exhibitor Info under the menu option of that name.
We want everyone to first focus on getting their own information and its' display to the point where you are pleased with how it looks. This is brand new to all of us and it will take a while to get used to the screens we have created. The fair site itself is largely ready, but know we are continuing to work out the details so we are ready when the fair opens next Friday.
If you are having trouble getting started, please look through the instructions. Also know that we are committed to our mutual success and will personally assist as needed. Please send notes to firstname.lastname@example.org with an idea of the issues and we will respond in the order received.
I have had a chance to work within the screens we created, and I will offer one tip to get started. Use two tabs. One should be open to the editing screens, whichever one you are working with, The other tab should be open to View (Right-Click, Open in New Tab, or similar for your browser) the information on your own Fair page, I will also note that it may be helpful to look around (Prior or Next Exhibitor) at what others are doing.
Also, please know we are working the process for getting your videos loaded in; we need to save that task for later while we work out the kinks.
With that I encourage you to have at. Hopefully this will be more fun than frustrating after you get going, and rewarding to all. Check in here, or set up the notifications to get notice of additional posts. We will provide updates when we think they will be broadly useful.
