Virtual events have shined during the COVID-19 pandemic with many in-person conferences quickly transitioning into virtual experiences. As lockdown orders begin to lift and in-person events come back, some people may still prefer to attend events virtually. Here are a few tips on how to host a successful hybrid event.
1. Effective communication
Communication is key! Let your virtual attendees know ahead of time how the event is going to flow and the details on how the online platform operates. You may even want to create separate event agendas for those attending in-person vs. online to in case there are any aspects that will only apply to in-person guests.
2. Attendee engagement
You want to make all your attendees feel like they’re a part of the event. Engage both in-person and virtual attendees with tools such as live polling and Q&As. Social media is also a key tool for engagement, especially if you have a specific event hashtag to encourage interaction online.
3. Choose the right venue
It is important to choose a venue that has the capability to both host the in-person event and stream the event online. Consider a venue that includes reliable high-speed internet, effective lighting options, and other technology capabilities needed to successfully execute your event.
