Well, what is a Hybrid Event?
Hybrid events have been around for a while however their true potential is only really being tested recently. A hybrid event is an event, conference, roadshow, panel, workshop or meeting that takes place both in-person and online. This allows people who are not physically at the venue to take part as a delegate of the event.
It’s similar to a streamed event, however, your virtual delegates are able to participate in the event themselves. They can take part by providing real-time text feedback, video feedback and a host of other ways.
It’s so important to engage your virtual audience. After all, they can click away any time they want. Seduce them and get them involved in the event content so that they want to stick around, from the comfort of their own homes, offices or in transit.
How does it work?
Event Planner has a few tips: A typical online broadcast of a hybrid event can consist of many different parts, here are some you’ll want to make sure you include in yours:
- A preview of the content of the event. Use this to introduce important keynote speakers and experts. Or to showcase parts of conferences or events that took place at another time. Use all the technology of hand with playback video and audio.
- Live recording of a presentation or seminar, with possibly the opportunity to ask questions online. The online moderator can gather these questions from remote viewers and put them to the speaker or chairperson.
- Commentary/conclusion. An exclusive Q & A with the keynote speaker, especially for your online audience, can be a big drawcard.
