Online, physical or hybrid event

In addition in organizing a physical event, you can also opt for an online or hybrid event. An online event takes place entirely online. A hybrid event is a combination of an online and physical event. With a hybrid event, the online part of the event has to be more than just a live video stream. There must be interaction. This interaction must be there to keep the external participants engaged. It is good to look at your event and what goal you want to achieve. Maybe an onine or hybride form is more suitable for your event.

  • What are the benefits of your online event?
    1. You can reach a large audience
      At a physical event, your guests need to make time to attend. Think of guests from abroad, travel time within the Netherlands etc. With an online event, the possibility to attend is much easier and with one click they are present at your event. In addition, you can record the event so that guests who were in doubt or unable to attend can watch your event again at a later date.
    2. An online event is often cheaper.
      If you organise your event online, you may incur fewer costs. Think of the lower catering costs. An online event is not always the best format for every objective, but if it is possible it is certainly worth considering. But do not skimp on your audiovisual facilities, as they are indispensable to the viewer's experience. 
    3. A virtual event is sustainable. 
      If you organize your event online, people don't have to travel by car or plane. In this way, you and your guests do your bit for the environment.
