  • Forging New Ground with Hybrid Events in 2021 and Beyond

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 04/08/2021

    Organizations have been producing hybrid events for many years. So what has changed? The answer is everything. This past year taught us about the power and reach of virtual education programming. Does it make sense to go back to the way it was once the pandemic is over? We will explore this question and address strategies and tactics for leveraging everything we learned last year as we make plans to return to traditional onsite conferences.

    Organizations have been producing hybrid events for many years. So what has changed? The answer is everything. A discussion with the rationale for offering a hybrid event. This past year taught us about the power and reach of virtual education programming. We innovated, were more inclusive and in many cases expanded our reach to those who may have not previously attended an onsite conference. Does it make sense to go back to the way it was once the pandemic is over. We have heard from some organizations who are moving forward with plans for a hybrid event while others are hesitant because they don’t want to take away from their place based programs. Where do you stand on this. We will explore this question and address strategies and tactics for leveraging everything we learned last year as we make plans to return to traditional onsite conferences. Additional takeaways include:

    1. Producing hybrid events from an online education perspective
    2. Cost and production considerations
    3. Weaving your hybrid event into our online education and LMS strategy

    Our speaker for this webinar is Jeff Hurt, CEO and Chief Epiphany Officer,Empowered Epiphanies.
