What’s the Difference Between Virtual and Hybrid Events?

Virtual events take place entirely online. They are run and hosted online, and bring people together through a virtual environment on the web. Virtual events typically happen live over video platforms such as Zoom, YouTube Live or Facebook Live. Online events are an opportunity to grow your audience and attract more people. However, they can’t replace traditional in-person events.

Hybrid events, instead, are traditional events with a live audience that are also streamed online. This allows those who are unable to attend an event in-person to join remotely. Simply put, hybrid events are a mix of both; they are made up of both, a “live” in-person and virtual audience. They can be an effective way to increase revenue. Hosting an event both, online and in-person, offers many benefits. Speak to us today to find out if this is the right approach for your event.
