Hybrid Events

Hybrid events combine the best of two worlds. A perfect blend of online and face-to-face event offers countless design options and many advantages for the organizer. The supreme discipline? To give the audience a unique experience both digitally and live on site. Top modern Gurgl Carat offers ideal conditions for such an event.

Advantages of hybrid events

Hybrid events have been on the rise in the event industry, and not just since the Covid pandemic. In the course of advancing digitization and the resulting opportunities, hybrid events and online events are becoming more and more important. In particular, the high degree of flexibility compared to purely face-to-face events is a huge advantage of hybrid events. At the same time, valuable get-togethers between the participants take place in hybrid meetings. It is not possible online in such a personal form.

3 good reasons to plan your next event as a hybrid event:

1. Flexibility
A smaller group on site means more flexibility in the choice of location, hotel and service provider. Spontaneous absences of individual participants (for instance: due to illness) do not endanger the entire course of the event. Thanks to digital technologies at Gurgl Carat, these people can still take part virtually.

2. Location independence
Only some of the event participants are on site. The other part is present only digitally. This is a great opportunity, especially for large companies that have teams all over the world, or international congresses. As well planners, speakers or visitors can take part in the event more easily - no matter where they are. This fact promises a wide reach and global orientation.

3. Interaction
Interpersonal interaction is an important part of any event. In hybrid events, it can work on many different levels. Personal contact on site in particular strengthens the relationship with employees and business partners. But also experiences in virtual space are more exciting than ever thanks to new staging options.

A hybrid event is a combination of classic event types that merge into a completely new event format. The epitome of a hybrid event is the mixture of online and face-to-face events. Both the participants on site and the digital viewers experience a meeting or event that is perfectly tailored to their needs and expectations.

Not all face-to-face events also work as hybrid events. It is important that no compromises are made in the implementation either online or on site. The following formats are ideal for hybrid events: meetings, product presentations, annual meetings, conferences, seminars, training courses, trade fairs or even innovative team building events.

Hybrid events allow more flexibility in the planning and preparation phase due to a smaller number of participants on site. Thanks to the online part of the event, more people can attend - from anywhere in the world. As a result, hybrid events are very climate-friendly because unnecessary travel is avoided. In contrast to purely online meetings, hybrid events also center on personal get-togethers and the relationship between the participants.
