Virtual & Hybrid Conference and Events
Your next conference or event might be face to face, virtual or hybrid – whichever format you choose, we are here to help you understand your options and achieve the best possible results.
Virtual conferences, also known as online or digital conferences, have become increasingly popular in recent years due to the convenience and cost-effectiveness they offer attendees and organisers. They are a great solution when it’s not possible to hold an in-person meeting and we help our clients produce some incredible virtual conferences. However, there are drawbacks of virtual conferences which can include a lack of in-person networking opportunities and a potentially lower level of engagement compared to in-person events.
Hybrid conferences and events offer a solution to these challenges by combining the benefits of both in-person and virtual events. They are usually held at a physical location with live presenters and a live audience, but they can also be broadcast to remote participants, and remote presenters can also be brought in.
Some of the main benefits of hybrid virtual conferences include:
- Increased accessibility: Hybrid virtual conferences allow attendees from all over the world to participate, regardless of their location or availability to travel. This makes the event more inclusive and allows a larger audience to engage with the content and speakers.
- Enhanced networking opportunities: While virtual conferences may lack the opportunity for in-person networking, hybrid events provide a combination of virtual and in-person networking opportunities. Attendees can connect with each other online through chat and video platforms, as well as in person at designated networking areas.
- Increased engagement: Hybrid events allow attendees to choose the format that best suits their needs and preferences. Some attendees may prefer to attend in person while others may prefer the convenience of participating virtually. This flexibility can lead to higher levels of engagement, as attendees can choose the format that they feel most comfortable with.
- Cost-effective: Hybrid events can be more cost-effective for both attendees and organisers, as they eliminate the need for travel and accommodation expenses. Attendees can participate from the comfort of their own homes or offices, and organisers can save on venue and catering costs.
Whether we are providing the audio visual equipment and support for your event or not, we can tailor a package which can be seamlessly integrated, allowing your event to be securely streamed to a wide array of online platforms or to a secure customised landing page or event website which we can design and build for you.
