A hybrid meeting format includes onsite and virtual audiences, and blends synchronous and asynchronous approaches to content delivery, attendee engagement, and sponsorship value. Hybrid meetings leverage technology such as live-streaming, virtual chat, and Q&A in conjunction with OnDemand content to improve the experience for all attendees, while still preserving the full value of an onsite meeting experience for face-to-face attendees.

A simple example of a hybrid experience:

Onsite audience

  • Your meeting can scale up and down in size as needed. Our virtual platform can support increase in attendees
  • You can put on a familiar or typical meeting experience for in-person attendees such as:
    • Concurrent sessions for onsite audience
    • Planned breaks and in person networking
    • Special Events
    • Standard Exhibit Hall
    • Poster Hall
    • Plenaries
    • Breakouts and Concurrent Sessions
  • Access to Virtual Meeting
    • Onsite attendees can have access to in-person, recorded, and virtual sessions

Virtual audience

  • Simulated Live or Live-streamed with OnDemand for enduring access
    • User registration and robust profiles
    • Gamification with leaderboard and stats
    • Virtual chat and networking including message boards and collaboration rooms
    • Virtual exhibit, abstract, and poster halls
    • Social network feeds
    • 3rd party and API integrations for registration and authentication
    • Sponsorship and exhibitor options
  • OnDemand is a must! With OnDemand, content can be made available after the meeting, with options for CE/CME, and accessible 24/7 from any device
