Virtual events have slowly become more popular in recent years, with technology improving and an increase in environmental awareness, some businesses have chosen to skip the hassle and costs that come with hosting an event and instead opt for an online experience.
Now with the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus, many worldwide events have even been canceled due to travel restrictions and attendees choosing not to attend.
Even when events aren’t canceled, it can prove to be a challenge to satisfy a large group of individuals, when it comes to event locations and timing.
What is an online or hybrid event?
Online events are those that take place online, through the use of online live streams. A hybrid event is an event that uses technology to host a live event to a remote audience.
Online or hybrid events could eventually become the future of the events industry, due to their capability of reaching a wider audience at the same time and allow virtual attendees to tune in at a later point if the event time was not convenient for them.
A great example was set last month when Giorgio Armani decided to host The Women’s FW20-21 fashion show behind closed doors with a live stream in support of national efforts to safeguard public health in Italy.
