With the onset of COVID-19, the need for virtual gatherings and hybrid events has become imperative as we constantly pivot to keep people safe and meet health-related guidelines.

What is the difference between a virtual and hybrid event?

Virtual events are meetings that take place 100% online. Attendees interact via an online digital platform. Guests can attend from anywhere in the world as long as they have access to the web and an electronic device. A physical location is unnecessary when hosting a virtual event.

Hybrid events have both in-person and virtual components. Attendees can choose to attend sessions either face-to-face in a physical location or online. People who choose to attend virtually can watch live streams of the event to interact with others in virtual reality.

We agree the best way to build loyalty and trust is to meet live and in person however with today’s technology and the more we use it is one of the best ways to keep business going.
