Selecting the right platform:
Once you’ve chosen an in-person venue, it’s time to select the events platform you’ll use to support your virtual audience.
Your hybrid platform will need a few different components to be worth your investment. Firstly, an obvious one. The ability to live-stream the event to a large international audience is essential.
To boost interaction it is good to have the ability to receive comments from the online audience. These comments can be posed as questions by a moderator in the audience during a live Q&A session at the event; this is a fantastic way to make online viewers feel more involved.
The platform we use at Go West for our hybrid events is Slido, this is a streaming software for virtual and hybrid events. The platform is user friendly and can be used across mobile and desktop devices which makes the event more accessible to attendees on the go.
