Our first Hybrid Event Masterclass was a huge success with over 1,000 virtual attendees.

A survey of event professionals during our first hybrid event since lockdown revealed that almost three-quarters (73 percent) of them are planning a hybrid event before the end of the year.

A fifth (19 percent) of planners said the biggest barrier to choosing a hybrid event is a lack of experience, followed by concerns over cost (17 percent), risk of failure (17 percent), perceptions of low attendance (17 percent), confusion with technology (16 percent) and getting stakeholder buy-in (15 percent).

 The event took place at our County Hall venue in London with virtual attendees tuning in from across Europe, the U.S. and Central America giving the event a global reach. 

If you joined us, then you’ll know that the one-hour session flew by. If you didn’t, then you can enjoy the recording below which will give you a taste of how the day unfolded.

However, what the recording isn’t able to fully bring to life is just how interactive and involving the hybrid event was for all of the attendees – those tuning in remotely at home and those who attended in-person within the various venues.

One of the benefits of hybrid events is the software that powers the experience. In this instance, etc.venues worked with hybrid software provider Glisser to provide a truly immersive session for attendees which included live Q&A sessions with the presenters, interactive polls, quizzes and lots more to create an unforgettable hybrid event experience.
