MPI European Networking event - "Hybrid event - how to turn it into a treasure chest?"
With the pandemic bringing about strict health and safety measures, the nature of events has definitely changed. Now, very often organizers have no choice but to conduct the usual events via virtual platforms. Some people are optimistic about this sudden shift, some not. Virtual events have proven to be scalable, safe, and cost-effective, and for sure they are here to stay. In fact, a hybrid event model, combining the rich experiences of an in-person event with the reach and convenience of a virtual event, is emerging as the new meeting standard. But it’s hard to deny that virtual and hybrid events come with their considerable share of complications, mainly technical and engagement difficulties.
The webinar is meant to address these issues and try to find optimum solutions to them. Based on the survey run within MPI European network we have gathered some experiences and insights. We are going to discuss them during our meeting and hopefully come up with the best approaches, how to cope with them and even more. During the event, our special guests from IT industry, venues, AV supplier and corporate world will share best practices on how to plan and run hybrid events and how to make the most of them for both organizers and their clients.
