Hybrid events (those with both face-to-face and online attendees) will likely see widespread adoption as in-person meetings reemerge from the pandemic. Hybrids will be a bridge back to normal, but, in many cases, will continue as a viable way to connect to a much larger audience than could ever be held in one location. This session will provide several ideas and suggestions for event designers and planners to consider when planning hybrid events.
- Receive ideas on how to arrange an event with two radically different audiences: the onsite group with social connectivity, focus, and high sensory input; the virtual audience, interacting individually on screens, with shorter attention spans and a limited sensory experience usually just looking at a screen.
- See suggestions on how to choose the best hybrid event platform for your specific needs.
- Get ideas on how to best promote the event to the in-person and online audiences.
- Cover a number of the many newly-learned best practices including audience engagement, how to manage the event onsite, and after the event.
