It’s Not “All or Nothing”: Event Options During the COVID-19 Pandemic

We can’t meet in person right now, or at least not in very large numbers. And even as countries and states start to open up and ease restrictions, we may not be able to meet in large numbers for a while.  Organizations want and need to continue to hold events so they can meet their business goals.  The good thing is, it doesn’t have to be “all or nothing” when it comes to hosting events.  Instead of a full-fledged, in-person event, organizations can choose to host virtual or hybrid events as we navigate through this time. 

What Are Virtual Events and Hybrid Events?

A virtual event takes place through an online event platform. There are countless types of platforms available, all with different features and price points. A hybrid event is when there is an in-person event component for some attendees, as well as access for online participation for those that cannot attend in-person. 

To learn more about virtual and hybrid events and the characteristics of a successful virtual event experience, please read the article we authored which was shared on AllSeated’s blog:
