The shape of events may have changed forever. Our chameleon-like industry has adapted to a global pandemic by embracing virtual experiences and is now exploring new, digitally-enabled safety measures as we eye a return to in-person events. 

Given the critical role of technology in helping event organizers adjust to change—plus the ubiquitous nature of technology in people’s daily life—it’s likely that hybrid events that combine face-to-face and online interactions will continue to expand. 

But what makes for a truly successful hybrid experience?

It requires careful attention to how you’ll engage people across formats. According to recent research by Markletic, 71.1% of event organizers say that connecting the in-person and virtual audience at hybrid events is their biggest challenge.

Effective hybrid event management often requires extra preparation time and sophisticated use of technology. So why bother? Hybrid events are more inclusive and potentially more valuable

Hosting hybrid events on the Jomablue platform lets you build a better pipeline and maintain a dialog with customers for weeks, instead of hours. You can also pique the interest of people that engage online who might consider attending future events in-person.

  1. Boost live experiences with digital interactions

It’s hardly surprising that many live events now include a digital component given how much people love their personal tech. Jomablue is a leading platform for hybrid events in part because of the way our virtual spaces complement and amplify experiences delivered on-site.  

For instance, by using Jomablue you can:

  1. Create unique experiences within one harmonious event

The ideal hybrid event is more than live event content in a digital setting. Live-streaming every session is probably not enough to make virtual attendees feel engaged and included. 

How can you give all attendees an engaging experience? 

Bridging the divide between live and virtual experiences can increase the reach and revenue generated from events. However, adopting the right platform for cross-format events is essential. 

Jomablue offers one flexible solution for virtual, hybrid and in-person events. This integrated approach to producing and marketing events regardless of format makes it easier to take a holistic view of any event, design targeted interactions, and measure your success.
