Virtual and hybrid events: The solution for the current demands for companies, organizers and organizations.


A hybrid event is a conference, seminar, workshop or another kind of meeting, where some speakers and participants are not present in person. Individual speakers can be partially switched together, or various locations can be live switched together. Often, the majority of participants follow the event online per livestream or video conference. With full-fledged virtual events, speakers, presenters and participants are switched together and the programme is professionally produced in our central control room.

The Difference Between Virtual & Hybrid Events And Standard Events

With virtual and hybrid events, the programme is typically produced primarily with the external viewer in mind. This is also the main difference compared to standard events, because with virtual and hybrid events, the timing and the course of the event must cater to the online viewer. The event is produced for the cameras which substitute for the viewers‘ eyes. This serves as a guiding principle for everything: the whole event design, the positioning of the cameras, lighting, sound and props. The cameras are not anymore positioned at the back of the room as “observers”; on the contrary, they are positioned close to the action.

Audience Engagement Via Interaction Tools

Virtual events and hybrid events alike are more than mere livestream broadcasts of lectures and on-stage discussions. Only with the addition of intelligent features such as chat and voting functionality, ratings, word clouds or breakout sessions does the audience turn into participants who can take active part in the event. We often incorporate a co-presenter who serves as the voice of the audience and voices their opinions and questions in an active way. The event programme as a whole must be interesting and it must include elements which will hold the audience’s attention.

Live Broadcasting To The Event Page, Website, Social Media Or Internal Video Conference Groups

Virtual and hybrid events are customarily broadcast per livestream, for example via our event page, with optional password protection using an individual or global password. For public events, the livestream can be included on your website or broadcast to your social media channels such as YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and others. For internal company events, the broadcasting is often carried out via video conference groups at Teams, Webex, Zoom or Bluejeans.
