The world is still reeling from the effects of the pandemic. And everything is uncertain. Some parts of the world are still in lockdown; some are planning to impose lockdown. At the same time, others are easing strict lockdowns and social distancing norms. So it is still difficult to carry out our activities, especially those activities which lead to social gatherings. This also includes events.
One thing that makes sense is organizing a hybrid event. You cannot invite too many people to a physical event. And people are tired of attending Zoom calls. So Hybrid events are the most appropriate choice for event organizers as you don’t have to invite large crowds to your event. And can use interactive features to engage your digital audience. So hybrid events act as a middle path between hosting a successful event and following the social norms.
