We might think of the hybrid event as a recent invention; something that evolved alongside the 100% virtual event during the global pandemic. However…
Electric cars have taken centre stage as the “captain of green living” in recent years. But, are we not just trading emissions from the exhaust pipe with those at a power station and a lithium mine? The answer is yes, but with good reason.
While the event app didn’t leave us over the last few years, it certainly took a back seat while virtual event technology did the heavy lifting connecting remote attendees.

As inflation continues to rise and disposable incomes stagnate or go backwards, it’s no surprise that many of us are tightening our budgets and reducing our spending. Like just about every other sector, this difficult period is likely to impact the events industry.
It’s reasonable to assume that when we network at a virtual event we should do the same things as we do in-person. However, while video does give us face-to-face contact, the way we communicate changes. To help attendees get most from a virtual event, we take look at how people can network effectively online.
