Hybrid events incorporate in-person and virtual participation simultaneously. They take place at a physical venue with an audience, but they also have a live and interactive online element too. They can include a variety of settings, whether it’s a conference or webinar, that offer the virtual audience a way to participate. This could be via virtual meetings that feature the live streaming of content and dedicated chat rooms with live Q&As and virtual polls.
Hiring a hybrid events company to assist in hosting your event, will mean
that you are able to reach participants anywhere in the world. This results in having the possibility to engage many more people than simply those who choose to participate in person. There are also benefits in being perceived as an innovative forward-thinking company. Investing in hybrid event solutions and creating a hybrid experience usually means that content can be easily repurposed, as it is developed with remote online audiences in mind. This can prove to be incredibly useful for future marketing and advertising purposes and generating a buzz around your next event.
Hybrid events offer a plethora of benefits that can prove hugely beneficial to businesses in both the short and long-term. This is because the fusion of an in-person event with a virtual one offers the best of both worlds – some of the main advantages are detailed below:
Hosting a hybrid event is not as simple as putting a camera in a room and live streaming the sessions.

Hybrid events are a combination of live in-person events with a virtual online component that are shown to those attending online. Hybrid events are becoming more and more in demand and are likely to remain so for the foreseeable future. By utilising the expertise of our hybrid event specialists, turning your event into a hybrid one will ensure that you are maximising the number of attendees and amplifying engagement.
Hybrid events provide you with certainty during these challenging times. The number of in-person events is likely to remain low for the foreseeable future and even then, limited attendances are likely to persist in the medium to long-term. Even when the number of in-person events does start to increase, changes in attendees’ expectations are likely to dictate that the demand for hybrid events will continue.
Hybrid events are suitable for companies and organisations of all sizes. Most of the time they are utilised by companies looking to take advantage of the benefits offered by hosting events in both the online and offline spheres. Alternatively, they are also suitable for webinars and meetings if you are looking to include individuals who are not able to travel to the event, or if they are joining from overseas.
We are able to provide all of the equipment needed to make your hybrid event a success, including cameras and tripods, microphones and even the streaming hardware for your attendees to connect to. As a specialist hybrid events company, we possess a wealth of expertise to ensure that your event exceeds expectations.
