Hybrid events have grown in popularity since the pandemic, but PGi has been helping brands, businesses, and organizations reach out to large audiences via the web for more than 20 years. In that time, we’ve learned a few things about delivering successful hybrid events and virtual events that engage in-person and virtual attendees alike.
Find the Right Technology for Your Webcast
If you’ve never hosted hybrid events before, you may need a turnkey solution that provides all the technology needed for both in-person and virtual attendees. PGi’s GlobalMeet Webcast permits businesses to use their own audio-video technology, or to call on our Webcast Production Services team to deliver state-of-the-art technology that will set your event apart.
Give Virtual and In-Person Attendees Opportunities to Interact
Virtual attendees can enjoy a multi-screen experience with a laptop or desktop computer and a mobile device. They can watch the presenter on one screen and use their smartphone to ask or answer questions, chat with the audience, or respond to polls. They can also do it all from a single screen if that is more convenient.
Likewise, in-person attendees can use their mobile devices to engage with presenters and other attendees as they sit in the room and watch the presentation live or on a separate screen.
Attendees on both sides get the same experience, wherever they might be watching, and can participate in the same surveys and see real-time results. Even those who aren’t in the room will feel like they are playing a role in the event.
Get the Professional Support You Need
No two virtual events are the same. If your event needs extra attention, the PGi team can offer on-site webcast support with:
- Service and support
We can provide webcast specialists, including producers and an encoding technician, AV crews to help manage production and live-to-tape recordings. We can even help you secure makeup artists, voice-over actors, and on-air talent. If your event requires it, we have access to foreign and domestic state-of-the-art broadcast studios to give your hybrid events and virtual events the professional look you need.
