Hybrid Conference Venues
The effect of the global pandemic really took a toll on the hospitality industry as well as many others. Live events and conferences that had been planned months or even years in advance were suddenly forced to postpone or be cancelled. Virtual and hybrid events became the new normal, and we all had to learn how to adapt and create effective programs. Hybrid events are a great way to continue with your planned larger scale events as it combines both in – person and virtual experiences. Whilst we’re still preparing for all restrictions to be dropped, we’ve put together some amazing venues that are open and suitable for hybrid events.
