    Happy Monday, all! Let's kick off our next Huddle of the Week discussion. We're sure everyone's had at least a few thoughts about hybrid event formats, or maybe are in the midst of planning and executing one. We know these will bring new experiences for everyone, and will bring back that strong partnership between a planner and a supplier that we were so used to. With that in mind, let's hear from both our planners/marketers and our suppliers on these discussion questions: 

    • How can planners/marketers & suppliers make hybrid events happen better together?
    • What will be a game changer action to take to pull off a great hybrid event?

    Let us know your thoughts and questions below! #HuddleoftheWeek #VoiceIt

       Reach out and rekindle those strong business relationships. There is a trust built in the relationships that cause less stress and worry. Planners can put their energy into the new issues of making the virtual/in-person event seamless. Planners build on relationshipsthat produce great outcomes so they can concentrate of other issues. It takes a village!
    • Work with your venue in keeping social distancing if that is a focus of the event.
    • Make sure the event has two experiences...dont forget the virtual attendees.
    • What will be a game changer action to take to pull off a great hybrid event?
      1. AV is an extremely important aspect for the hybrid events. If you dont have an in-house AV department, read reviews on external AV companies. Do your research!!
    • 2. Gamification is a way of making your event very interactive. Learn to build on games, live Q&A, and live polling to keep your audience engaged!
