A hybrid event: an event that combines a live, in-person component with a virtual, online component.
While many might think that events need to be strictly virtual, hybrid is certainly an option to be looking into. Presentation stages:
- provide an opportunity to enhance attendee engagement
- ensures that the appropriate (and essential, if you ask us!) tech support is available at your fingertips
- allows for maximum flexibility for your speaker(s) and presenter(s) regardless of their location
- provides an opportunity for a wide variety of presentation formats
- still factors in essential branding applications, décor, ambiance, etc.
Three local vendors (FMAV, invert720, and Production World) have done a fantastic job at making presentation stages available to one and all, identifying any needs that one might have for their event and ensuring that the tech support, human support, and customer service is woven seamlessly through the experience.

We’ve chatted a lot about the necessity of having tech and AV support as part of your virtual or hybrid event. Virtual events: virtually limitless in terms of possibilities but prone to virtually any, and all, hiccups.
