What is the key to successful hybrid events?
We asked someone who knows about winning!
Let’s talk about hybrid events! Best-selling author of nearly 50 sports books and award-winning peak performance business speaker Ross Bernstein joined Thom Singer and me on the Webinar Talk Show for a conversation about how to win in the hybrid event world. Ross shares how he is working with meetings industry professionals to deliver member value during COVID19 restrictions. (Also there is a bit of Big Ten Gopher vs Badger smack-talk)
Key Points about Engaging Virtual Events:
- Don’t Cancel Your Event! High-touch experiences are still possible.
- Meeting professionals are worried about putting out “bad” events.
- Hybrid events are Ross’s first choice – be creative.
- Ross encourages meetings professionals to say, “Let’s do something!”
- Looking at hybrid events as broadcasts with a live studio audience helps set up the interactions.
- Speakers had to change to adapt to virtual conferences and hybrid events.
- Teams must adapt to win. The same is true for the meetings industry.
- A hybrid event emcee (or two) is an important part of an event team.
- And so much more.
Thank you, Ross, for sharing your insights!
