For example, a booth dedicated to Academics will offer the opportunity to chat with students currently enrolled in Ultimate Medical Academy programs, while a booth dedicated to Admissions will be staffed by representatives ready to answer questions about enrolling.
“With most of our students being online, virtual open houses give us a chance to interact with and show prospective students what Ultimate Medical Academy has to offer from any place they happen to be,” said Ultimate Medical Academy Vice President of Digital Marketing Rustam Irani. “vFairs is extremely effective and user-friendly and we’re excited to share this experience with prospective students in August and will be hosting more virtual open houses in the coming months.”

The virtual open houses are expected to draw hundreds of visitors.
