Virtual Road Show Stop #2: Unpacking Hybrid Events

When:  Mar 18, 2021 from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM (CT)

Hybrid events combine in-person elements with the virtual environment. Sounds simple enough but the reality is, there is no set rule for what a hybrid format should be. While a hybrid event has advantages (like potentially reaching a larger audience) it also has its own set of challenges to consider (like the fact that virtual attendees' needs and expectations differ from those attending in-person).

  • Is it possible to create a shared experience for your virtual and face-to-face audiences?
  • How long should the event be?
  • Do both virtual and in-person activities have to be offered simultaneously?
  • What are the costs to consider - and should you charge attendees?
How can you adapt your content to the digital environment, keep your dual audiences engaged, provide value to sponsors or exhibitors, train your speakers and attendees, and manage costs of technology needs (and in-person F&B)?  All these questions and more will be explored during this robust panel discussion moderated by Megan Denhardt, CAE, DESPresident of Denhardt Productions.

Our panelists include:
  • Jeanne Deimund, Associate Executive Director, Wisconsin Association of School Business Officials
  • Eric Lanke, CAE, President & CEO, National Fluid Power Association
  • Ashley Medeiros, CMP, Senior Manager, Destination Services, Discover The Palm Beaches
  • Leigha Schatzman, Executive Director, Association for High Technology Distribution

      Submit your burning questions ahead of time and come ready to contribute to this informative dialogue. 

      This virtual event will consist of a one-hour panel discussion, followed by 30 minutes for networking. 

      Each stop in the 2021 Virtual Road Show is worth 1 CAE credit (2 credits for both). 

      You will be able to register for both Road Show stops at the same time.
