As we navigate and utilise the virtual world to host our current events with our clients, we can’t help but wonder how our industry will change once things come back into routine and we get to see, touch, smell and hear rooms full of people at a live event. One thing is for sure, we won’t be seeing live events working by themselves anymore. What we will see is a good balance of digital and live events working together to deliver an even heightened and better experience for delegates, attendees and guests around the world. Hybrid events are the way to go and here is why it is the future.
What is a hybrid event?
A hybrid event is simply an event that combines live, face-to-face events with digital, live streaming events. An example of this could be a staff conference that hosts a live event in Sydney live streaming the same program to different states.
Why Hybrid events?
Hybrid events has an impressive reach of audience making the scope of the event a nationwide and world-wide reach. The ability to attract more attendees by offering both live and digital events. Create further flexibility by providing on demand viewing. With Hybrid events, you are no longer bound by physical or geographical limitations. The world is your target market hence creating further opportunities for your business to grow and reach new markets.
