If you ask an event planner when they plan to hold their next LIVE event, they would probably not have an answer to the question. The event planners are well aware that now the event industry has evolved into the event tech industry. This means that event planners have become virtual event planners, and events have now become ‘hybrid events’
As an event planner, you must quickly adapt to the new era of hybrid events, and if you wish to know more about hybrid events, this post will walk you through the details.
What are hybrid events?
The meaning of the word hybrid is ‘mixture of two things.’ In the case of hybrid events, it refers to a mix of LIVE and virtual events. Hybrid events have a LIVE audience present for the event while streaming a LIVE coverage so that the non-present audience can see the event virtually.
Another prerequisite of a hybrid event is that it needs to be engaging and interactive. So much so that people joining virtually can feel the event’s essence as if they are physically present there. According to a report, a whopping 97% of marketers are confident that hybrid events will be the way forward.
Choosing a Virtual Event Platform for Hybrid Events
When you organize an in-person or LIVE event, you need to plan the venue’s details, sponsor booths, a stage for the audience, sponsors, and VIPs. Similarly, when you plan a hybrid event, you need to consider the availability of all the above features for your virtual audience, sponsors, and VIPs.
Let’s have a look at a virtual event platform where you can host your hybrid events with ease:
