HYBRID

CITY ALLIANCE

Our mission is to connect the world to a global network of partners that foster collaboration to provide meeting professionals with access to knowledge, innovation, and tools to produce hybrid and multicity events.

WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF HYBRID MEETINGS!

Hybrid events are an important way forward for the event industry to return to live formats. This format provides a wider reach of your conference. In a hybrid meeting, some participants are attending in-person and other participants are connecting virtually at the same time. You can even set-up a multi-hub event connecting multiple locations around the world and make the meeting even more global and interactive. Multiple hub meetings are not new and have been taking place for a few years already, from involving a few cities or locations within one country to multiple cities from around the world; from very simple meetings with basic technology to more complex audiovisual productions.

Our Hybrid City Network

The alliance brings together like-minded destinations from around the world, with a common bond of providing solutions for hybrid and multi-hub events.

All you need to know about hybrid events in one

easy-to-read whitepaper

Your Ultimate Guide to Multi-City Hybrid Events” came together in the spirit of collaboration. By engaging in dialogue with industry professionals, including planners and suppliers, through various workshops, the Hybrid City Alliance is pleased to share the results of these conversations in the white paper.

The white paper sets out to:

    1. Define what it means to run a multi city hybrid event – this includes the challenge of seeking a definition of hybrid events and identifying where they sit in the industry’s wider offering and vernacular
    2. Help choose whether or not to organise an in-person, digital or multi-hub hybrid event, including the various challenges and benefits of each.
    3. Provide ideas and guidance on the design of a successful multi-hub event with an awareness that this can mean creating separate live, digital and hybrid experiences with content appropriate to each as a stand-alone offering and the wider event as a whole.
    4. Consider the sustainability of multi-hub hybrid events, measure their impact on the world and apply appropriate actions to mitigate damage.
    5. Identify the risks associated with hybrid events, in particular those areas where risk to an event’s success is increased by a switch to the hybrid and multi-hub formats.
    6. Highlight health and safety challenges, particularly in light of an ongoing global pandemic.
