Do you REALLY want to do a hybrid event?Mar 14, 2022
Hybrid events sound amazing in theory. They give people the benefit of attending either in person or virtually at home - what could be wrong with that? But when it comes down to actually planning and running the event, it becomes exhausting and at times overwhelming.
A hybrid event takes a much larger amount of planning time, resources and money than either a virtual or in-person event.
In this solo episode, I’m exploring whether it’s really worth running a hybrid event. I’m personally not a fan of hybrid events at all. I’ll be telling you my reasons why and the actual workload you’re signing up for when you commit to running this type of event.
In order to paint a picture for you, I’ll run you through how to run a kick-ass completely virtual event and live event and then the complexities of running them simultaneously. I’ll explore 5 key tips for planning a live virtual event so you can start to see the breadth of production work that goes into each event so you can make an informed decision about the use of your resources, time and money.
