Realisation of exposition-like events, like conferences, exhibitions, etc., involves a multifaceted process regarding aspects such as: general planning, administration of the event's ground, exhibitors and visitors support, local event's time scheduling during de exposition or simple staff management. Depending on the complexity of the exposition, this usually requires considerable logistics efforts, which could be decisively facilitated through information technologies such as Internet/Intranet/Web-based systems. The aim of this paper is to propose a generic web-based solution to support exposition-like events. A prototype designed to support any type of exposition-like events - the Exvent System, is in detail described and discussed. It supports specific services and interfaces regarding different users such as: organisers, exhibitors and visitors. Users have a multimedia environment available, displaying a graphical model of the exposition-ground along with specific on-line facilities.
