Hybrid events

Combining physical events with virtual events. Design hybrid events in an innovative way.

 

Hybrid events

Hybrid events are virtual supplements to real events. An event can be accompanied online before, during and after the real event. The combination of real and virtual trade show ensures that you use the advantages of both worlds to create an optimal experience for your visitors.

The browser-based solution of the hybrid trade fair formats offer decisive advantages for you compared to real and virtual trade fairs and represent a solution for the trade fair construction and event industry of the future.

Advantages of hybrid events

Independence of place and time

In addition to the physical event, your visitors have the opportunity to participate in the event online. Presentations and documents can be made available to the visitor on demand on the online platform and for download afterwards.

Detailed event analysis

The combination of a physical event with a virtual event enables you to perform detailed event analyses. In addition to visitor measurements at the physical booth, visitor data can be tracked and analyzed online in compliance with GDPR.

Cost effective realization

Take advantage of the unlimited space in the virtual world to keep the cost of the real event location low. The virtual platform does not become more expensive due to a higher number of visitors.

 

High reach in target group

With a hybrid event, you take advantage of unlimited reach for your event. People who cannot attend the physical event due to distance can use the virtual trade show solution.

 

Unlimited number of participants

In addition to selected visitors at the real event, the hybrid event format allows you to use the unlimited number of participants for your virtual event to enable as many visitors as possible to attend.

No download needed

Your visitors don't need to download any additional software. Everything runs via the visitor's browser. They can access the hybrid trade fair via Chrome, Firefox, Edge etc. Access to the event is also possible with a mobile device. 

Disadvantages of hybrid events

In addition to the overwhelming advantages of a hybrid event format, there are also disadvantages that must be taken into account when preparing, conducting and following up on a hybrid event.

  • Parallel planning of the physical and virtual event
