Hybrid events in person and online: The best of both worlds
On the go, accessible, always on. These buzzwords gain meaning when it comes to hybrid events on our MEETYOO Pro platform. People who cannot make it to the actual event location, can instead visit a digital twin or your event. What this type of event looks like is up to you, the organizer. Adding immersive, virtual experiences to a physical event and making this content available to a global audience demonstrably increases your overall return of investment. Hybrid events represent the ultimate combination of traditional on-site events and virtual event environments.
What is a hybrid event?
There are two main ways that you can go to make the most of your hybrid event and its digital features.
Creating a digital twin of an on location event and adapting it into a virtual event allows organizers to expand their reach beyond the location of their event. The hybrid event is not a simple copy of your physical event – it is intended as an adaptation that takes advantage of digital event features and elevates things to the next level. Additionally, exhibitors can extend their booth presence to a virtual booth set within the digital version of your event.
Using hybrid events as a platform for studio-quality live streams is a unique way to leverage the power of our virtual event solution. The hybrid event can be treated as a broadcast of a live studio production with an audience (the physical event). This solution also allows for multiple regional satellite events that are being combined into one show which is seamlessly integrated into a digital event environment and can be made available online internationally.
Why you should go hybrid
If done right, you get the best of both worlds! We have the necessary know-how and the best toolkit on the market – our track record with large-scale hybrid events speaks for itself. Here's why going hybrid might be the solution to all of your event woes.
You can also add exclusive content which is only available as an online stream (e.g. pre-recorded talks or promotion videos). Attendants on-site and your online audience can access this content via their computers or mobile devices. This is also true for all multimedia archives which are included in our virtual booths. This way you can share your content with as many people as possible.
Hybrid events are perfect if you want to...
You could work with an NGO that plants trees and try to reduce the CO2 impact of the physical part of your event. Or you could support wildlife preservation organizations or ocean cleaning efforts. There are many options, and we have summarized some suggestions here....
Exhibitors can extend their booth presence to a virtual booth set within the digital twin of a trade fair. Content remains available to old and new attendees even after the live day because the online format allows for on-demand archivation.
This is an attractive feature for sponsors who are on-site and would also like to make the most of the online reach of the hybrid event (which can host up to 50,000 attendees at a time). And of course it is also an interesting proposition for sponsors and partners who would like to participate exclusively online.

Telekom's Digital X
This event was massive, with 160 speakers from all over the world discussing technology from every perspective. The schedule was packed with eye-opening panels, trend-forecasting talks, and inspirational speeches, including a keynote from Sir Richard Branson. With a digital twin, the Digital X organizers could guarantee that everyone got a chance to attend and replay the experience.
Attendees, live and online, were able to review the speeches and panels they missed. This hybrid event fill the need of increased reach during the pandemic without sacrificing human connection.
Ideen Expo Hybrid Conference
The Ideen Expo was launched with the aim of getting young people excited about STEM and starting a professional future in the science and technology field. It is considered Europe's largest youth event of its kind. Because of state regulations, the event's organizers decided on a hybrid event format to keep the series going and make it as accessible as possible to a live audience on-site and online.
600 students took part on-site and 70,000 viewers attended the virtual event worldwide. Moderated live talks with different experts from more than 70 exhibitors were offered and streamed live from one of the 4 event stages at the venue.
