Hybrid events are a new form of events that combines the best of in-person and virtual interactions. Despite the pandemic, businesses are looking for ways to increase their revenue and grow their businesses.
In today’s world of instant gratification, people want information and solutions when they want them. They don’t have time or patience to wait in line, sit through a long seminar, or fill out tons of paperwork just to get the information they need.
Hybrid events provide a way for businesses regardless of size to connect with industry experts while still maintaining the convenience of an online event. By combining live webinars with virtual interaction, hybrid events allow you to maximize your efforts by reaching more people in less time than traditional seminars or conferences can offer. This gives attendees access to valuable content from industry leaders without having to sacrifice any personal time away from work and family life. Plus, because there is no travel involved, these types of events also save you money on gas and hotel costs!
In this post, we explore how to create engaging hybrid events that drive business growth. Serial entrepreneur and online event expert Hoyin Cheung walks us through how to leverage social media platforms, video conferencing tools, and more so participants feel like they are part of an interactive conversation with other attendees rather than listening passively from home or work.
First, we’ll cover what makes up a successful hybrid event before diving into 10 things all marketers need to consider when planning one themselves – including using content as teasers for events; facilitating small group interactions; conducting proper Q&A sessions; and much more!
