    • What type of service providers listed are most crucial in executing your hybrid events? Video production and editing are our most vital!
    • Are you looking for vendors outside of the above categories? If so, what type of vendors? What about a gifting vendor? We usually give gifts on-site to attendees but we'd need/want some agency to help us manage giving that same boutique gifting experience to those not attending in real-time.

    Hi Danielle/Rachel - In understanding the type of service providers most crucial for executing our hybrid events - we are looking for GLOBAL suppliers.  I.e., those suppliers that understand global requirements and limitations, as well as offer customer support on a global level.  Using a regional supplier may work if your virtual event was localized, but for Enterprise clients, we are all to aware of issues that may happen in different regions, and working with a service provider who is already ahead of the game is key to success!

    • What type of service providers listed are most crucial in executing your hybrid events? For hybrid events I would say Video production
    • Are you looking for vendors outside of the above categories? If so, what type of vendors?  I agree with Rachel; Vendors that provide gifts, Things like nice speaker or attendee gifts. Companies can ship gifts directly to  virtual attendees and speakers so they will feel like part of the event.

    • What type of service providers listed are most crucial in executing your hybrid events?
    • Event management, transportation, video production and editing in terms of outside vendors (we do some of the other services in-house)
    • Are you looking for vendors outside of the above categories? If so, what type of vendors?
    • Under attendee experience, I would include entertainment vendors for opening/closing sessions, etc.
