So much about hybrid events is still unchartered territory, and for most event planners, a new experience. Whether you’re already dedicating a portion of your 2022 budget to hybrid events or still in wait-and-see mode, you’re in good company.

With pandemic health and safety concerns continuing to affect the industry, we want planners to feel confident about holding a hybrid event!
