Due to the situation brought forth by the pandemic of 2020, hybrid events come as a necessary solution for all event organizers.

A hybrid program is a concept that combines the idea of a live event with a virtual event to bring the best of worlds together – ease of access, risk-free, and with the same level of entertainment as before.  You no longer have to feel uncertain about your meetings and events, as now you can convert them into hybrid events.

Are you considering going this route? In this case, you have come to the right place. In the following article, we will show you how to maximize this kind of event’s potential and how you can make the most of your virtual event.

Two Types of Audiences

This type of event has been around for many years. The NFL, for example, has a live audience for their games, but also broadcasts them to millions of people worldwide. And their success is a testament to how effective they can be at reaching global audiences.

By creating a hybrid program, you, too, can open up to a large potential audience. All you need to do is develop the infrastructure to hold both a live audience and an online one.

In this field, visuals are important – the venue and the presence of an audience matter.

One of your efforts would be to get a visually striking venue. The other would be to accommodate the right number of live guests. Your online guests will feel more relieved to see that they’re not alone in the virtual event experience.

You will need a digital platform with many functionalities for your virtual audience and can handle lots of online traffic. In an online environment, people can come and go, so their numbers can fluctuate greatly.

What Type of Content for Your Hybrid Program?

Do you intend to take your guests by surprise, or do you want to offer them a taste of classic entertainment?

It depends on what you’re going for but knows that a hybrid event allows you to get creative.

Here’s an example that has been tried and tested. You can hire a magician to perform for your live audience while interacting with the viewers at home for the virtual event.

The magician can call someone live on stage, to pull off a sleight-of-hand trick. He can ask the online viewers where they think the card is hidden, creating a very suspenseful moment for both live and online viewers alike.

Or perhaps the magician can ask both the live and online audience to think of an object collectively – then through the use of mentalism, the magician can read the audience’s mind and draw the object on paper.
