OVERVIEW

In 2020, companies were forced to pivot their advertising strategies by going digital and Labroots was ready to guide clients, old and new, in the redesign of their physical events. The progress of the recent COVID-19 vaccines opens a new potential - hybrid physical and virtual events. Labroots is thrilled to participate as a pioneer, both as on- and off-site support, and as a producer of custom virtual events, for the latest design of scientific events and conferences.

WHAT IS A HYBRID EVENT?

Here's the truth about hybrid events - the options are endless To be frank, it's difficult to fully define a hybrid event because a hybrid event can be any combination of physical attendees, booths, and presentations with virtual audiences, posters, webinars, and beyond.

So why are hybrid events so exciting if no one can define what they are? Because if COVID-19 has shown us anything, it's that a virtual event presence, no matter the extent, is equally as valuable to event organizers to not only increase visibility to a worldwide audience but to also ensure that every attendee feels safe.

Hybrid events invite registrants physically and virtually, where physical attendance may be limited, or attendees, whether international or high-risk, are unable to attend in person. Event presentations, whether on-site or virtual, can be streamed for a virtual audience and event features, such as exhibit halls, poster halls, photobooths, and more, create an interactive experience for both physical and virtual attendees.

HYBRID VS. VIRTUAL

But why not just produce a virtual event? If that's what you want, then Labroots would be happy to help you, but let's dive into the differences between hybrid and virtual events and why event organizers are so excited about the potential of hybrid events.

Hybrid events have been around for a long time, we just never thought of them as such. Event organizers have been streaming presentations to a virtual audience for many years, but now there is the opportunity to not just stream a presentation, but to make a physical event interactive with a virtual audience. Hybrid events marry the on-site features, whether it bs presentations, exhibits, polling, etc, with a virtual audience, where event organizers and companies can receive feedback from both physical and virtual attendees.

Virtual events are just that - virtual. Although there are many benefits to hosting a virtual event, specifically the in-depth data tracking, the combination of physical attendance for more intimate meetings adn on-site demonstrations, and virtual audiences for more public presentations has shown to be very beneficial for both attendees and sponsors.
