What is a hybrid event?
Hybrid events are a combination of live and virtual events. A fancy phrase for something that has existed in many forms over the years.
For example, our clients often host live events, such as, strategy meetings or product launches and invite a virtual audience or speakers to the event. Live streams are well-known alternatives for people who cannot join the event in person.
Simply by combining live and virtual participation, you’re hosting a hybrid event.
Why Hybrid Events?
When delivered professionally, hybrid events show the best that live and virtual events can offer. Some participants benefit from in-person networking at a live conference, others prefer to watch your event content from home. By giving your audience the choice between attending in-person or tuning in online, you will achieve maximum engagement.
Hybrid events connect your live audience with your virtual participants. By offering your event in both formats, you give attendees the choice of how they want to experience your event. In addition to accessibility, hybrid events offer many benefits.
The decision to hold a hybrid event, rather than purely virtual or live (physical) event should be based on a range of factors. To make this decision, event planners should focus on the goals of the event and be influenced by various criteria such as the event type and size, audience demographics, budget, and content among others. For many events, such as private & corporate parties, where the aim is for guests to celebrate, connect and enjoy themselves, a hybrid solution may not be a useful approach. When we look at a new event brief, we will consider all possible options and recommend the best course of action to fulfil the brief in the best way.
