Everything You Need to Know About Hybrid Events In 2024

All events can typically be categorised into one of three categories; virtual, in-person or hybrid events. For those that don’t know, hybrid events are the perfect balance between virtual and in-person, incorporating elements of both, in order to create a unique event experience; they are truly the best of both worlds! Hybrid events have a fantastic reach of both face-to-face and virtual guests, creating more opportunities and benefits for both the host and the attendees.

Over recent years, hybrid events have become a more regular choice for businesses. This is for a variety of reasons, but they have certainly become more popular following the Covid-19 lockdown and the rise of virtual event opportunities thereafter. Here, we’ll give you a brief summary of everything you need to know about hybrid events and how we at First Event can help you make the most of them in 2024!

First and foremost, it’s fundamental to have a strong and clear event strategy! This ensures that everyone involved has a proper understanding of what you want to achieve from your event. If you opt to work with a 360 degree agency like First Event, understanding your goals and vision, pre, during and post event, is our very first step. Ultimately, this guarantees that we deliver an event that exceeds expectations!

Hybrid events are perfect for those looking for a solution to hosting large guest numbers at conferences, trade shows, award ceremonies or career days, for example. There are a variety of reasons to choose a hybrid event, however, reducing travel for guests and avoiding venue capacity issues are both a real benefit! 

Whilst hybrid events are fantastic for connecting your business with new audiences, they can also be used to bring together your team or customers, no matter where they are based…

  • Internal Hybrid Events - this type of event is held to benefit your company’s internal team.
  • External Hybrid Events - external events are targeted at your external audience like your customers, clients, prospects or other guests.
