Hybrid events are a combination of live and virtual events. Let’s say you host a product launch and invite a small number of people to attend. You also record and live stream the launch, so people who don’t show up in-person can tune in online. By facilitating live and virtual participation, you’re hosting a hybrid event. Hybrid events don’t have to be half-live, half-online, either.
You might host a conference and only make the keynote speech available for live streaming. Keep in mind that hosting a live event, filming it, and distributing the event film afterward doesn’t count as a hybrid event. To be hybrid, delegates should be able to access at least part of the event virtually as it’s taking place.
When done properly, hybrid events bring together the best elements of live and virtual events. Attendees can benefit from the in-person networking of a live conference or the convenience of watching your event content from home. Hybrid event planners also give delegates the choice between attending in-person or tuning in online. Flexible options stand to increase your event’s overall participation.
Hybrid events connect your live audience with your virtual one. By offering your meeting or conference in both formats, you give attendees the choice of how they want to experience your event. In addition to accessibility, hybrid events have several other benefits:
With our hybrid events, presenters will deliver their presentations in a live studio, which includes our technical crew for lighting, camera, and staging.
We film and livestream the presenters to your virtual audience. Our hybrid services also allow for remote presenters, so all of your event content is webcast through a centralised platform.
We can provide bespoke virtual worlds and branded digital overlays for your webcast.
Your virtual participants will be able to log in through a secure portal, with enterprise-grade security and compliance.
