Virtual and hybrid refer to how your audience engages with your event.
Your audience interacts in a fully virtual environment, either through a video conferencing tool, a live stream, a virtual event platform, or another method.
There is a mix of audience participation - but a significant percentage of your audience participates virtually. This could be a live session streamed to a broader audience, or an exhibition where suppliers have a presence both online and offline.
Depending on your event, you may be familiar with these tools. However, each one covers an essential piece of your event, and will make your virtual event a success.

Keeping the attention of your attendees is vital for a successful virtual or hybrid event, and shouldn’t be an afterthought. Great engagement can be woven into your entire event to keep your attendees glued to their screen, wherever it may be.
Many attendees are used to professional videos that keep moving. A tight script will help prevent any ad-lib that could derail the whole presentation.
A common tactic is to live stream the main sessions, and use pre-recorded content for the rest. This has the added benefit of saving you a lot of stress the day of the event!
