Making Hybrid Events More Than a Virtual Fly on the Wall

Jun 14, 2023
Education Session
Content Production and Streaming Live Events
A one-way video feed isn't enough for today's events. We must elevate both in-person and virtual audiences to create interaction. We will explore some of the production concepts to allow and encourage this interaction, as well as ways to use the readily available tools to create highly interactive events.
This session will specifically dive into content production and ways to create interaction between all audiences from a technical production standpoint. The term hybrid event all too frequently means an in-person event that has a camera at the back of the room. A virtual audience with a one-way view is not in any way equal with the in-person audience. In the best case, it ignores a large part of the attendees, and, in the worst case, ignores all of the possibilities that current technologies have to offer. Not only do we have the tools needed to create hugely interactive experiences spanning both virtual and in-person audiences, we owe it to our events, our clients, and our attendees to use them.
Learning Objectives
  • Define a new standard for MVP of a hybrid event
  • List the various ways attendees can interact both in-person and virtual
  • Demonstrate some of the tools that can be used to create events with this level of engagement
