Virtual Series: The Roadmap to Hybrid
How to Manage Event Logistics for a Hybrid Event
As in-person events return, hybrid event planners may find themselves feeling split between two events. The logistical requirements for in-person event components may differ widely from virtual event components.
If you're wondering what that means for planners, watch moderator Dahlia El Gazzar, discuss tactics and best practices with special guest speaker Tonya Almond, PCMA's VP of Knowledge & Experience Design, in the very first session of EventMobi's newest virtual series: The Roadmap to Hybrid.
You will learn:
- Skillsets—What you need to know and where to go to get it
- Division of responsibilities—How to divide and conquer with the same event budget and twice the work
- Success metrics—How to know if you’ve realized your objectives or met your match
- Tools—How to keep tabs on everything from one location
And much more.
